About

Through large-scale restoration and rewilding, NATURAL STATE secures biodiversity, sequesters and stores carbon, and helps achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

NATURAL STATE works with conservation leaders and local communities to help build restoration/rewilding capacity, infrastructure and implement impact monitoring technology in landscapes where there is the greatest potential to restore carbon and biodiversity while improving livelihoods.  We are developing and improving a large-scale restoration blueprint that can be easily replicated across landscape.

 

In addition to catalyzing large-scale restoration projects we aim to help make them sustainable.  We are developing cutting-edge carbon, biodiversity and development impact monitoring technology, using the latest Artificial Intelligence and satellite data.  We are combining this with improved carbon credit verification and certification processes to help trigger nature-based markets.  We believe this will unlock billions of dollars of private sector capital and soon be the largest source of funding for large-scale protection and restoration.

CHALLENGE

Intact natural habitat is critical for our survival along with the 10 million species with which we share the planet. Yet we have now degraded 75% of the world’s natural ecosystems and are losing an area of forest the size of Greece each year. To avoid the greatest climate and extinction crisis in human history, we must halt habitat destruction and rapidly accelerate protection, restoration and rewilding efforts globally.

 

In addition to catalyzing large-scale restoration projects, we aim to help make them sustainable. We are developing cutting-edge carbon, biodiversity and development impact monitoring technology, using the latest Artificial Intelligence, remote sensing and cellular technology. We are combining this with improved carbon credit verification and certification processes to help trigger nature-based markets. We believe this will unlock billions of dollars of private sector capital and soon be the largest source of funding for large-scale protection and restoration.


Despite the many commitments from governments and the private sector, with the exception of a few impressive efforts, there is little large-scale restoration and rewilding happening on the ground, particularly in the parts of the world where it is needed most.

SOLUTION

NATURAL STATE works with local communities, industry, government and conservation leaders to help protect, restore and rewild large landscapes. We do this by helping build local capacity and infrastructure, leveraging technology and implementing innovative financing mechanisms. Our aim is to make large-scale protection and rewilding sustainable over the long-term. We focus on areas where there is the greatest potential to restore threatened habitat, rewild species, sequester carbon and improve livelihoods. 
 

Investment in nature-based solutions has the potential to be the single largest funding source for large-scale restoration and rewilding. However, the success or failure of projects needs to be much more transparent if the sector is to attract significant investment. We are therefore revolutionizing carbon, biodiversity and development impact monitoring using the latest AI, cellular technology and remote sensing. We are combining this with improved verification and certification processes to make nature-based solutions investments a reality, unlocking billions of dollars of private sector capital.
