Biohabitats applies the science of ecology to restoring ecosystems, conserving habitat, and regenerating the natural systems that sustain all life on Earth. They do this through assessment, research, planning, design, engineering and construction. We believe in the power of business to catalyze good in the world. With a mission to restore the Earth and inspire ecological stewardship, Biohabitats is a purpose-driven company that measures success primarily by the degree to which we enhance biodiversity, ecological democracy, and the resilience of life on this planet. Our projects help communities to restore degraded ecosystems, plan for the future in ways that enhance ecology and strengthen resilience to climate change, and link the natural world and its powerful systems with the built environment. In doing that work, and in the day-to-day operations of our business, we walk the talk of sustainability, transparency, equity, and accountability. Our staff members are diverse in background and discipline, but unified by a shared set of values: wild nature, healing compassionately, wholeness of being, uncompromising integrity, and the willingness to evolve in order to continually improve. We will not take on a project or enact a company policy that does not align with those values. We are proud to be a certified B Corporation and a member of this growing community of businesses focused on environmental and social responsibility.
