Restoring People and Places

A Rocha {uh RAW sha} is a family of Christian conservation organizations begun in 1983 in Portugal where our name means “the rock”. Our mission in the US is to inspire, equip and engage Christians and all who will work with us to steward the Earth where they live. We currently work in 20 countries around the globe conducting scientific research, running hands-on conservation projects and operating environmental education programs—all in community settings and with a holistic approach to improve the wellbeing of both people and places.
