Working Locally and Globally

QLF takes a community-based approach to environmental conservation, implementing locally-based projects, and encouraging international knowledge-sharing by linking practitioners that face similar environmental challenges 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 is shared internationally with other conservation leaders through exchanges, collaborative projects, and knowledge sharing. QLF Alumni have initiated private land conservation deals and established marine protected areas in their home countries as a result of their QLF experiences.
