CONSERVE NATURAL FORESTS

Conserve Natural Forests (CNF) is a non-profit NGO operating primarily in Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai Provinces of Northern Thailand. Their mission is to restore natural forest landscapes throughout Thailand to optimal structure, functionality, and resiliency in ways that protect and enhance biodiversity, self-regulate landscape ecological functions, and improve the livelihoods of local communities in the long term. Their mission would not be possible without the support and knowledge they share with both local and global stakeholders. They work with a diverse network that includes smallholders, local businesses, schools, Buddhist temples, community forest coalitions, local government, the Royal Forestry Department (RFD), and the Royal Thai Military.
