The Altai Project has worked since 1998 to protect natural landscapes and wildlife and ally with Indigenous peoples in Eastern Europe and Eurasia. The project supports frontline defenders in addressing environmental and human rights issues, including poaching, illegal logging, and gold mining. Its programs protect rich biological diversity through species-specific research and conservation programs and promote effective protected areas management. The Altai Project allies with and sponsors Indigenous-led initiatives relating to traditional knowledge, Indigenous rights, sacred lands, and traditional natural resource use.
