I've had great experiences with this organization. They have a very innovative approach to conservation, which melds finance and market-based approaches with a deep understanding of ecology and ecosystem dynamics. Definitely worth consulting with any conservation issues.

I collaborate with ACS on a number of projects trying to link biodiversity conservation and economic incentives. I think that ACS has a raft of innovative ideas which could lead to real change in how we approach the protection of nature. The real challenge for the organization will be building these ideas into workable funded projects.

ACS is a pioneering NGO doing interesting and valuable work. They make a difference very economically. They are excellent shepards of the environment and low income people who are the most effected by environmental programs.
