Celebrating 28 years of conservation work | MAVA Memories

Between February and end June 2022, we captured and helped unlock the stories and experiences of MAVA’s community of partners from their years collaborating with the MAVA Foundation. We guided this process and developed the tools to facilitate the story collection.


The result was a wealth of moving stories, meaningful experiences and compelling anecdotes from the last 28 years of work in the conservation sector. The collection of nearly 500 stories has not only brought about powerful feelings but has also helped paint a picture of the legacy MAVA is leaving behind.


  • Get a glimpse of what MAVA learned through this experience by reading this blog post.

  • All the stories collected in an anonymous manner are accessible via this open-access dashboard;

  • A grid with picture-stories is also available on the MAVA’s website.

  • A selection of powerful stories will also be used in a MAVA commemorative book, due to be published in early 2023.
