About Nature Now International
Nature Now is a non-profit organization for youth by youth. We create opportunities to involve other young people in creating just and effective solutions for to achieve the coexistence between people, wildlife, and the planet.
NNI offers youth in Costa Rica, California, and all over the world opportunities to contribute to community outreach initiatives and scientific efforts. Young conservationists learn the value of generating data to promote the development of evidence-based intervention and policy for the conservation of both marine and terrestrial life.
Just as the development of a more sustainable world requires a collaborative, holistic, and multidisciplinary effort, NNI projects include youth from many different cultures and backgrounds with diverse interests, skill sets and passions. With the generous guidance of local and international mentors and partners, NNI creates experiential learning opportunities for youth in elementary, middle and high schools.
The hope of NNI today is to sensitize and motivate youth to continue to promote sustainable development, in whatever lifestyle, community, or career path. We believe that young adults and adolescents must urgently address the ecological future of this planet. It is up to the youth today to protect the planet for tomorrow.
