The Story

Planet Conservation was formed in 2004 by Federico and Beate, with the intention of building a platform to present various projects that had been worked on in Latin America. Since then, they have grown in scale, using a holistic approach to tackle the environmental issues that face the world today.

It was upon talking to their children and hearing of their fears for the future that they realized how essential it was to create a sustainable world for them to enjoy, motivating them to continue to expand and grow the organization.

Through these projects and many more, Planet Conservation hopes to keep contributing to the shift in collective consciousness regarding the environment. By focusing on attainable yet important goals, we can create a future in which humans and the natural world can flourish.
