Advanced Conservation Strategies (ACS) is a small international NGO that works at the intersection of science, environmental conservation, and human-centered design. We work with environmental foundations to design and evaluate environmental conservation programs, and we run our own conservation projects - both marine and terrestrial. We tend to work across sectors (academic, NGO, and private) and disciplines (e.g., design and science), and we often operate like a small consulting company. Our mission/pitch is:
WE MAKE LIVES AND THE ENVIRONMENT BETTER THROUGH SCIENCE AND HUMAN-CENTERED DESIGN, We focus on outcomes, incentives, and sustainable finance. Our foundation is science, yet we work and collaborate outside of science to design and implement new solutions and ventures. We work across sectors to integrate behavioral science, finance, human-centered design, markets, natural science, and technology to solve problems.
