Our Project


Farmer with tree nursery
More than 1% of the world's biodiversity is represented within an isolated region of northeastern Madagascar. Here, in its largest remaining rainforest, farmers and artisans are engaging in a new kind of conservation: wild silk production. 

 Conservation through Poverty Alleviation International (CPALI) has developed a new solution to conservation issues that results in unique, artisan textiles made of wild silk. Farmers plant native trees, produce a no-kill wild silk, and earn comfortable living wages through sustainable, silk-based livelihoods. 

 100% of the profits from Wild Silk Markets are returned directly to Madagascar.
