Our Mission
Terralingua works to sustain the biocultural diversity of life — the world’s precious heritage of biological, cultural, and linguistic diversity — through an innovative program of research, education, policy-relevant work, and on-the-ground action.

Our Vision
A just, equitable, sustainable world in which the biocultural diversity of life is valued, protected, and perpetuated for generations to come.

Our Goal
To bring about a profound shift in human values through a deeper understanding and appreciation of the vital importance of biocultural diversity for the survival of all life on earth, so that individual and collective action is taken to care for it and sustain it in this rapidly changing world.

Our Strategy
Terralingua develops and deploys its expertise and insights on issues relating to biocultural diversity in international fora, through publications, public education, fieldwork and policy development, and by enrolling and informing a membership base.
