Human well-being and the health of the environment are inextricably linked. Conservation and development efforts are often siloed, however, putting the sustainability of impact at risk.

For change to last, indigenous and local communities who live near, depend on, and steward wild places must play a leading role, but past engagement has too often been for local communities or even offered to them, but not fully with them.​

It’s time for a change

Legado offers a radical new approach for securing THRIVING FUTURES for both people and the wild places they call home.
