The Tenkile Conservation Alliance (TCA) works directly with over 12,000 people from 50 village communities that own the Torricelli Mountain Range in Papua New Guinea (PNG). We are supported by various partners, donors and funding agencies.
The TCA aims to protect the biodiversity of the Torricelli Mountain Range using tree kangaroos as flagship species for conservation. Our vision is that the people of Papua New Guinea value and protect their natural resources, community and culture.
The TCA works towards the incorporation of traditional and scientific knowledge throughout the project area. Our mission is to build a culture of trust, empathy, pride and intrinsic values that protect PNG culture, community and natural resources.
