The Altai Project will protect natural landscapes and wildlife and support indigenous cultures and traditional lifeways in and around Russia and the 4-nation Greater Altai region that also includes Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and China through community collaborations and targeted campaigns.
We will work to achieve this mission through grant-based support, strategic exchanges of expertise and technology, strengthening protected areas (including sacred sites), and amplifying the voices of frontline partners and experts through storytelling and advocacy.
