In 2008, the Altai Project and over twenty US nonprofits, individuals, and donors formed an international alliance to protect Russia’s Altai region.
The Altai Alliance includes EII’s Sacred Land Film Project, Pacific Environment, Snow Leopard Conservancy, Altai Assistance Project, Altai Mir University and numerous other groups and concerned individuals. Together, we work individually and collectively to promote and strengthen nature protection, sustainable resource use and development, and indigenous communities in the Altai Republic.
Currently the Altai Alliance is mainly comprised of US-based nonprofits, individuals, and foundations. Thanks to generous support from the Weeden Foundation, the Alliance meets annually in the San Francisco Bay Area and welcomes additional members committed to the same goals. It also has a private listserve to share news and events and for collaborative projects.
