Reinventing our relationship with nature in time to stabilize the climate emergency and halt mass extinction requires new stories and a new narrative. The Peace Parks Foundation is helping to reinvent our story with nature with the launch of PeaceParksTV.
The Peace Parks Foundation is a core member of the Global Rewilding Alliance. This channel will share conservations most exciting behind-the-scenes stories, happening now, that demonstrate the commitment of individuals around the world to rewilding the African continent. This unique platform (with its own “channel”), is launched in partnership with realvision.com, the UK team that revolutionized financial information and communications in the past few years. The same material will also be shared across Peace Parks Foundation’s other social media. The objective is to change the way that people – donors, policymakers, and the public – access, understand, and get involved with conservation under the rubric of rewilding.
We are proud to share their achievement with others, and hope that you will enjoy this new and important conservation resource.

However, despite the promise that Mashpi brings, a glaring problem persists: the government fails to prioritize its waste recollection services. Esteban Barriga, an EXCELerator 2021 alumnus, saw this and how the waste management issue has affected the Mashpi community, and decided to do something about it.
The recently concluded COP15 is a historic event, and it has given us much to think about. The gathering of world leaders and conservation actors has resulted in the drafting of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF). This is a landmark deal indeed, as it gives us a framework on how to move forward in the protection and conservation of the planet’s biodiversity. However, while we acknowledge the significance of such a feat, we are also aware of its pitfalls.
