Business Solutions for Environmental Challenges

Much commercial development across the world destroys or degrades important natural habitats. This has catastrophic impacts – the loss of ecosystems, biodiversity and our natural heritage. Protecting nature whilst enabling growth is the most important conservation challenge of our time. The Wallacea Trust meets this challenge by empowering communities in developing nations to grow commercial enterprises specifically linked to biodiversity conservation, ensuring that business opportunities can be realised in harmony with environmental sustainability.

About Us

The Wallacea Trust funds projects that empower communities and individuals to develop successful, commercially viable enterprises linked to the conservation of biodiversity.

About us

" Alfred Russel Wallace marvelled at the "adaptation of animals to their food, their habits, and the localities in which they are found". Our projects embody Wallace’s beliefs and strive not only to preserve these species and habitats, but also to work with the people for whom his localities are home. "
