We use compelling storytelling to instill hope, grow community, and inspire connection to nature.
What do you think of when you hear the word “environment?” Stories of hope, or stories of despair?
I’m Naamal De Silva, Founder of Mayla. During over 15 years of working to protect nature both internationally and domestically, I realized that we can address species extinction, climate change, and pollution. But, we need stories to show us the way: stories of resilience, innovation, and possibility.
Mayla, which means community in Sanskrit, provides a platform for uplifting stories about people who protect nature. We are expanding mission-driven digital media by growing community both online and on the ground. We will use partnerships to connect people to each other and to nature. Our blog will showcase innovative ideas and initiatives.
We need your help to get started. Support our crowdfunding campaign, tell us a story, and let us know what you think. We would love to hear your ideas!
