"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.
NATURE FOR EVERYONE
Connected Planet Foundation is a charity set up with the overarching goal of connecting people to our beautiful planet. We believe that everyone has the right to experience the wonders of the natural world, and we believe everyone should be given the tools to help protect it.
Connected Planet Foundation’s mission is simple. To connect people to themselves, each other and to the planet, by providing opportunities for communities to experience the wonders of the natural world, whilst also helping to conserve it. In doing so we aim to create the next generation of nature enthusiasts and conservationists.
We work with a number of partner organisations across Africa to give marginalised communities the chance to visit and connect with, the wildlife reserves that they live alongside. For many, it is their first time in a wildlife reserve and first time connecting with wildlife.
In order for us to truly protect our planet, we must first connect to it.
