Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation brings the outdoor and science communities together to achieve conservation outcomes.
- To improve the time, scale, and depth at which conservation takes place.
- To provide the outdoor community with resources to put their skills to work for the benefit of the natural world.
- To create an engaged and informed group of advocates who are intimately involved in conservation issues.
There is currently a great void that exists in our scientific knowledge of the natural environment. In the wake of a changing climate and a rapidly expanding human population, it is imperative that the choices we make are based on relevant scientific information. We know that the collection of data can be expensive, time consuming, physically challenging and is often a limiting factor in achieving tangible conservation outcomes.
Adventure athletes posses unique skill sets that can have a dramatic impact on informing the conservation process. These ambassadors of the outdoors often want to do more with their time outside but simply have not be mobilized to do so. Throughout the last several years, we have been organizing an army of adventure athletes turned adventure scientists who have now worked for conservation on seven continents.
The skills of outdoor enthusiasts present a unique opportunity to gather essential information that will directly inform change. We improve the time, scale, and depth of the conservation impacts by working with the outdoor community.
