Mission and values


Parvati.org is a not-for-profit dedicated to a healthy planet. Our long-term vision is the Global Peace Sanctuary, to address poverty and hunger around the world. As a first step, we are focused on protecting the vulnerable Arctic Ocean ecosystem because it plays a pivotal role in sustaining life on Earth as we know it.

Whether flying across the world on their own time to represent the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) on the global stage, creating an international treaty, or showing up in a hundred everyday tireless ways, our volunteers—from the newest enthusiastic helper right on up to the founder—are motivated by love for our world. We believe in better. We commit, every day, to embody peace, compassion and interconnection. MAPS is not just our mission. It’s our ethos.

We have no financial interest in Nature conservation initiatives—only a human one. We wish to see all free from suffering, misery and lack. We are all interconnected as one Earth family.

As Founder and Director, Vision, Parvati inspires our ever-growing team of volunteers to create MAPS for the benefit of all life. Parvati is not a member of the Board of Directors and is not involved in any decisions made by the Board of Directors.


We transform the world together.
