    About us

Our Mission is to help conserve the ecological biodiversity and cultural diversity found in coastal (Coral Reefs & Mangroves) and Himalayan environments that have enriched our lives for the future generations to enjoy.

Our impetus to start this foundation stems from the rapid deterioration of natural ecosystems, alienation of indigenous people from their habitats, the loss of biological diversity and human values leading to a new breed of environmental refugees and feminization of poverty.

To maintain peace on earth, it is essential that we maintain peace in all its realms of space, oceans and land environments. It is also important for a country to take care of all its citizens irrespective of gender and ethnicity and support them to maintain their cultural identity and self esteem.

CARESS is dedicated to the memory of Shri Ranjit Singh Hoon (2/2/1923 – 7/5/1998) by his family and friends.
