What Is Conservation Music?
Conservation Music is a grassroots non-profit organization that cultivates the use of music as an educational tool for a healthy planet. Through their work, they strive to createbalancebetween humankind, nature, and society through the production and distribution of educational content, musical workshops, live events, and classroom resources. Conservation Music's approach engages various members of the public, regardless of race, status, or level of education, giving vulnerable populations and local musicians a platform to contribute content created for environmental change and awareness. We go directly to the villages, where we facilitate conversations between the artists and/or community members to identify local environmental issues and find an exciting and engaging method of expressing them. We then distribute content directly to partners, classrooms, and fellow artists.

Who is more motivated by music than musicians themselves?It is the pursuit of innovation,creating something out of nothing…melding human minds in ways that only we can.To a musician,a song is something to understand,not only for the message it relays and the feeling it evokes but for the ways which we can harness those powers and put them to action to reach other people.As we dance and tap our feet,we can’t help but learn and calculate what we are hearing,or even what we are playing in a moment of improvisation.And now to be given a chance to change the world?When do we begin?!

After years of soul-searching and months in the African wilderness with the National Geographic Okavango Wilderness Project, musician and geographer Alex Paullin combined his foremost passions and founded Conservation Music, a non-profit aiming to foster a global culture of sustainability using music as the messenger. Throughout his life he aims to expand the Conservation Music movement globally, in hopes that his lifetime will see and hear songs of conservation being sung throughout the world.
