An ecosystem is defined as a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment. Generally, they're extremely fragile. A single change can trigger catastrophic events that result in their degradation and loss. Unfortunately, a number of human activities are causing such events, bringing about the destruction of ecosystems across the planet. That's why our mission is to protect and restore ecosystems. One of the ways we do this is through the purchase and management of areas we identify as ecologically important.
Our founder, Joseph Merz is passionate about conservation and creating organisations that thrive and reflect the natural world. Joseph doesn't measure viability by profitability, instead he measures it by environmental and social impact. MCF runs unique fundraising activities to finance our projects and will accept donations (including those from Joseph's other organisations).
