We pioneered a different kind of conservation organisation.

Southeast Asia covers only 4% of the earth’s land area but is home to 20–25% of the planet’s plant and animal species, a major global biodiversity hotspot. Present day geography is highly atypical and it will become even more so as the region loses more of its natural land area rapidly in this century. Renature Ecology is generating five convergence platforms to enable over twenty-eight initiatives to restore the world’s greatest ecosystems, in tandem with the accelerating rates of anthropogenic change and the predictable redistribution of the growing human population. Renature Ecology is on a mission to catalysing, accelerating, and mainstreaming nature-positive economy to renature Southeast Asia and Austronesian regions.

Accelerating Nature-Positive

Opportunities to address both climate change and the extinction crisis are time bound. Nature-positive economy is key to maintaining human prosperity in a warming world to avoid catastrophic climate change, conserve species, and secure essential ecosystem services. Renature Ecology believes the world require a massive transformation, the Ecological Revolution…this transformation is long overdue as the world heads toward a human population of 10 billion over the next thirty years. The new nature-positive economy measures across half the Earth could be US$10 trillion annually; conserving and restoring carbon-rich ecosystems (forest carbon, blue carbon, soil carbon) for climate change mitigation, adaptation, and resilience.

The New Indigenous Deal

In our worldview, the land owns the person, not the other way around. We are nothing
more than guests on the land, and we see ourselves as stewarding the land for future generations and other species. We should not aim to preserve our built and land
ownership, driven by conservation optimism and environmental determinism.
Renature Ecology strives to enable collective action in protecting ecosystems, stopping
land degradation, preventing further loss of biodiversity, and the preservation of natural landscapes across Southeast Asia and connected Austronesian regions. This is the New Indigenous Deal seeks to protect and restore natural places for diversity and abundance, halving the negative ecological impacts of human-based production and consumption.

Great Transition

We’ve run out of time, this is the most crucial decadal challenge, and those of us with ecological consciousness can begin to change the course and put us back on the right track. In our struggle to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, there is no viable alternative without embarking the Great Transition to catalysing, accelerating, and mainstreaming nature-positive economy. Governments, organisations, and individuals must seize the momentum to renature Southeast Asia with ambitious goals, aggressive plans, nature-based solutions, and binding science-based targets. We are all involved in this race. The most important race in human history, setting net zero pathways.
