Working to protect and restore earth’s most valuable ecosystems



It all starts with your contribution. You invest in FishCat as a donor and philanthropist



We partner with landowners and farmers who can make their land habitat for endangered species



We build trust and set up agreement contracts with land partners to incentivize restoration for 3-5 years



Together, we create conservation-based livelihoods that ensure ecological and economic sustainability

Our Goal

Is to empower global communities with conservation jobs that restore ecosystems, and help solve deforestation, extinction, and climate change.

We’re working with our landowner partners to create FishCat Nature Reserves for sustainability — featured below is one of our Nature Reserves where you can join us on an expedition

Land Partnerships

We’ve secured 700+ acres of land partnerships in India, Sri Lanka, and the United States.

We currently have incentive contracts setup with two land partners working to restore and reforest their own lands. Our goal is to see them sustainably harvest forest products for their communities and lead sustainable, carbon-negative livelihoods.

Relationships for Life

At FishCat, we’ve been able to create more than 16 jobs in conservation that lasted for at least 2 years on average since we were founded in 2014.

As our investor and subscriber, we will keep you posted with news, from farmer and forester to friends, for life
