Working Locally and Globally

QLF takes a community-based approach to biodiversity conservation, implementing locally-based projects, and encouraging international knowledge-sharing. QLF links practitioners facing similar needs to build climate change resilience programs in their respective home regions.

Atlantic Region projects are rooted in QLF’s program Mission to protect biodiversity, interpret heritage, and protect the integrity of resource-based livelihoods. QLF has supported projects that focus on habitat protection for fish and wildlife; recovery of species at risk; reversing historic declines in Atlantic seabird populations; environmental education; and new community-based models for managing forests and marine environments.

Outcomes and lessons learned through QLF’s conservation programming are shared internationally with other conservation leaders through exchanges, collaborative projects, and knowledge sharing. As a result of their QLF experiences, QLF Alumni have initiated private land conservation deals and established marine protected areas in their home countries.
