We run campaigns, mobilise communities, and advocate passionately for the protection of our unique cultural, natural and built heritage. We do this by engaging with the community and government to identify, conserve and protect our built, cultural and natural heritage.

The Trust is prepared to act quickly when we are alerted to threats. Our role today is also to lobby and negotiate to ensure that developers and governments cannot sweep away irreplaceable heritage in the name of progress. At the same time, we seek to raise community awareness of what is at stake.
