Creative Conservation Alliance
The Creative Conservation Alliance (CCA) is dedicated to ecological and cultural preservation within Bangladesh’s last remaining wild places. Through our grassroots efforts we empower local people to become stakeholders in their own landscapes.
Our organization is achieving conservation success through partnerships with government and non-government stakeholders, provision of alternative income sources of the tribal communities, rigorous scientific research, and the sustainable protection of natural resources. Both with our EcoGuardians program in the Chittagong Hill Tracts and with the Bangladesh Python Project in Lawachara National Park, we are giving communities a voice and the tools to succeed in staving off the destruction that their lands face.
Parabiologists are one of the foundations of our organization. These laymen are trained to carry out basic scientific tasks such as collecting morphometric data, GPS logging, and telemetry work. Without these dedicated souls we would not have the manpower or traditional ecological knowledge of the study areas to conduct our research.
Utilizing Lawachara National Park (LNP) as an experimental platform, we conduct species-specific research resulting in sustainable management decisions applicable to protecting forests throughout India and Southeast Asia. Burmese pythons, elongated tortoises, and Chinese pangolins are studied using radio-telemetry equipment in this semi-evergreen forest.
Building and supporting primary schools in areas too remote for other NGOs to work in, for an amenable exchange of logging bans and hunting moratoriums of 15 endangered species. For only $100 a month, we can create sanctuaries for the incredible biodiversity in these forests while bringing literacy and cultural revival to these villages.
