Conservation – We carry out research for the conservation and restoration of the natural world and run environmental education programs for people of all ages.


Community – Through our commitment to God, each other and the wider creation, we aim to develop good relationships both within the A Rocha family and in our local communities.


Cross-cultural – We draw on the insights and skills of people from diverse cultures, both locally and around the world.


Cooperation – We work in partnership with a wide variety of organisations and individuals who share our concerns for a sustainable world.
