The Audlind Nature Fund is a non-profit organization established to protect Iceland's natural heritage, maintain its diversity, and strengthen its sustainability.  Audlind funds projects with these shared goals and seeks to increase awareness of and participation in nature conservation.  Currently, Audlind's main focus is on wetlands restoration.  The wetlands provide essential services in the natural environment:  sequestering atmospheric carbon dioxide, conserving water, circulating nutrients, and in this way protecting the diversity of the land and its living organisms.
