What is the Silvan Foundation?

Silvan is an environmental nonprofit which permanently preserves land: there is no commercial use of the land we preserve.  

What does Silvan do?

Silvan buys land, and we accept land donations. Then we permanently preserve that land: no new roads,

buildings, logging, mining, agriculture, dams, extraction or resale.  To finance operations, and to further protect the land, we sell forever wild easements and permanent carbon credits.  

How is Silvan different?

Silvan is a preservation organization. Unlike many conservation organizations, we preserve land entirely and permanently, rather than conserve it partially or temporarily.​  

Why land preservation?

Like EO Wilson and David Attenborough, we believe that some part of the planet needs to be permanently preserved from human impact if all its species are to have a long term future.
