We help people understand that none of us survive alone—that all life does best when it works together with other life. This better connects everyone with the natural world, resulting in more constructive decision-making and problem solving. This is a way of getting the world to co-operate.
We named this field and endeavor Cooperative Ecology, and we teach the concept to others and work to implement solutions that align with it. As industry, governments, communities and individuals adopt this way of working, it leads to more constructive decision making.
CLEAN WATERS PROGRAM – A PRIORITY
Protecting and Preserving Earth’s Waters
A major focus of LAEO’s US headquarters is the protection and preservation of Earth’s oceans and fresh water resources. These programs have three focal points currently:
- Locating and implementing technologies for removing oil and fuel chemical pollutants from our fresh water and ocean aquatic environments.
- Improving policy and planning that governs our hazardous chemical and oil spill response systems.
- Addressing water scarcities through cutting edge technologies for finding and accessing Earth’s deep-seated water resources in order to make clean water abundant and available for all life.
The consequences of the dwindling availability of clean water and ocean environments on the planet, represents one of the most critical social, economic and environmental challenges of this century.
Creating a Renaissance of Constructive Decision Making
The importance of infusing the concepts of Cooperative Ecology throughout society can not be overstated. Through educational publications, our Oceans Adventure Eco Safaris and LAEO’s On-Board Adventure High, as well as seminars, contests, conferences, and one-on-one meetings, we work to raise awareness and implementation of this fundamental concept.
Supporting Wildlife Conservation
Through our Eco Safaris to South Africa and our Wildlife in War Zones project, we work to bring more humane and healthy conditions to wildlife, and to bring all aspects of the challenges and issues related to the protection and preservation of biodiversity of species on the planet into better cooperative balance.
