It is nothing of surprise these days if you tune into ten different television channels and you find six out of those ten talking about climate change and strategies to save planet earth from environmental degradation. As a matter of fact, environmental degradation is one of biggest challenges man is facing in the current era. Though there are debatable factors causing this huge degradation on global level, still the consequences are quite clear and unarguably lethal. To combat this situation, there are different organizations working all around the world on different local, regional and international levels to mitigate climate change. Cardamom Project is one such organization working in the United States of America specifically for the conservation of Cardamom Mountain. This organization has been working for many years now and is now known internationally for its effective performance and result oriented strategies for brining improvement in mountain ecosystem of Cardamom. There are different goals and objectives set by this organization. However, a few of them are of vital importance. But all these objectives tend to save the biodiversity in this region as well as combating the environmental pollution of this region using different biological tools. Now, this is very important since the bioremediation of different pollutants helps us to decrease the cost of combating pollution and increases our efficiency. There are many organizations today which have started off working following the principles and examples set by Cardamom Project. This organization is not only working on site but is also working in awaking a sense of awareness in the local communities about the care and protection of the environment in their target regions. Reports have revealed that they have achieved significant success in their motives and they look forward to launch further projects regarding the biodiversity conservation of the area under study.
