Who we are and What we do:
Ecosystem Restoration Camps is a non-profit organisation founded by a movement of people who wanted an action-based solution to address accelerating climate change. The camps are a practical, hands on way to restore land degraded by humans. Our mission is to work with local communities and build camps that transform degraded landscapes into lush, abundant, life-giving ecosystems. We are committed to preserving our planet for future generations.
Ecosystem Restoration Camps are hubs of restoration activity where campers can work together with the local community to actively implement restoration strategies while learning restoration techniques that can be applied in other areas.
We envision a global network of Ecosystem Restoration Camps supporting the emergence of fully-functional, peaceful, abundant, biologically diverse Earth brought about through cooperative efforts for the ecological restoration of degraded lands. Read more in Our Vision…
