This project was born from the idea that the best way to conserve our forests is to experience them. By experiencing them, you will start to understand them, and when you start to understand them, you will start to love them.
Our mission is to get you to trees more than you already do. Maybe even get you to help us plant a few trees in the process.
In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught.
( Baba Dioum, 1968.)
This film produced by Patagonia carries a message that's at the heart of why we do what we do. The bottom line ... we need forests more than they need us.
The forces that cause Climate Change are happening in the mountains at a faster rate than other geographic area. Climate Change is essentially a shift in species range and distribution, and the rate of change can be catostrophic for the species that live in hostile areas where the serve a special niche. One of the by-products of this project is to build resource management tools that will help quantify and qualify the rate of change happening by using remote sensing tools and applying Artificial Intelligence tools from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/ai/ai-for-earth .
