Educating the World from the Web

Alveus is a virtual education center following the journeys of our non-releasable animal ambassadors, aiming to educate and spark an appreciation for them and their wild counterparts.

What is Alveus?

Founded by Maya Higa

Alveus is a nonprofit organization founded by Maya Higa that functions as a wildlife sanctuary and as a virtual education center facility to provide permanent homes to non-releasable animal ambassadors. These animals function as ambassadors, so viewers can watch their journeys, get to know the animals, and gain an appreciation for their species.

Alveus hosts content collaborations where creators can visit and participate in education programs. Combining platforms this way maximizes the impact for spreading conservation messages.
