High Asia Habitat Fund

The High Asia Habitat Fund’s mission is to protect High Asia’s critical ecosystems through conserving wildlife, restoring wild habitat, and empowering dependent communities toward conservation.

We envision a future where the animals, resources, plants, cultures, and humans of the high mountains of Asia are secure and thriving for centuries to come.

Here’s How We Do It.

Collaborative, cross-cutting work with local partners, nonprofits, governments, and communities is key for this work.

High Asia Habitat FundWILDLIFE CONSERVATION

Through ecotourism initiatives and livestock protection programs, we fund projects that turn wildlife into an asset instead of a liability.

Sensitive ecosystems require creative solutions, and we focus on strengthening protected areas and building carbon-negative restoration.

High Asia Habitat FundCOMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT

Communities also depend on the ecosystem, so we prioritize empowering communities through livelihood programs and skills training.

Focus Areas

High Asia Habitat FundPREDATOR-PROOF CORRALS

Snow leopards, a keystone species across High Asia, can cause a lot of trouble if they enter a shepherds corral. A villager can lose all of their sheep in one go, which leads to a loss of income and anger and retaliation toward the leopard. Predator-proof corrals are an affordable, proven method to reduce human wildlife conflict and conserve predators in the region.

REFORESTATION

Resources across High Asia are scarce. The human demand for natural resources leads to habitat and food loss for species. It also contributes to the greater warming of our planet, which is particularly vulnerable in High Asia. Carbon-negative projects, such as habitat restoration and reforestation, contribute to the local ecology and the greater region’s health.

RANGER TRAINING

The best advocates for conservation come from within communities. Training local ranger teams on tracking and spotting their local species creates wildlife advocates for the tourism, nonprofit, and government entities. Skills learned through ranger-to-ranger training increases collaboration throughout High Asia and creates a world-class tourism industry, conserving animals.
