ABOUT US

Conserve Natural Forests (CNF) is a non-profit organisation based in Pai, Thailand, that aims to restore degraded tropical ecosystems. Our core projects include Reforestation, Wildlife Conservation, and Education.

We use a system called the Framework Species Method of reforestation on degraded landscapes with an aim to restore natural forest cover in Thailand. We not only focus on trees, but also the animals that call these forests home; we rescue and rehabilitate domesticated Asian Elephants and various species of reptiles and work toward returning them to their natural habitats.

However, we believe that this work cannot be done single-handedly. That is why we coordinate with local communities by sharing our resources and emphasising the importance of sustainable development and environmental conservation.

Moreover, we share our mission with the broader international community through our accredited internship program and organising eco-tours of our project site. We hope to create a more sustainable future for generations to come, and would love your help and involvement in being a part of this project!
