Developed with support from the blue moon fund, these projects benefit rural families, while also giving wildlife populations a chance to rebound. They compliment FREELAND ranger trainings to create a ‘push-pull’ effect, reducing poaching in the forest corridor and alleviating the conditions that motivate unsustainable hunting.
FREELAND is preparing to scale-up these projects to create a self-sustaining shield of community forest stewardship along the border of the Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai Forest Complex.
With support from donors and investors, we are working to:
- Enhance protection for biodiversity, watersheds, carbon storage and other environmental services
- Reduce rural poverty and crime
- Increase (healthy) food security
