Our goals and visions are based somewhat on the IUCN’s (International Union for Conservation of Nature) three main goals:
- To highlight a way of living that allows people an excellent quality of life that consorts with nature
- To learn to especially care for natural resources that our earth can not renew.
- To protect the bio-diversity of the wilderness.
