As natural resource professionals, we have a deep appreciation for the fundamental values and principles shared by Indigenous People of living harmoniously with the land, water, and resources. We embrace the opportunity to continually learn from Indigenous People and to understand their cultural and spiritual connection to the land. This respect and growing understanding about Indigenous perspectives and the impact of colonization is fundamental to reconciliation.
Ecoscape is committed to nurturing positive personal and professional relationships with Indigenous communities. Through this, we are passionate in our goal to work with Indigenous communities to advocate, coordinate, communicate, and elevate environmental awareness, protection, and restoration.
Ecoscape routinely collaborates with Indigenous communities on technical field work and data collection, training and capacity building, and community development.
