At its heart, Conservation International's work is about relationships.
It's about seeing the interconnectedness of the natural world and understanding the ways in which we all depend upon the gifts of nature for our well-being.
It's about convening the right people and developing the programs and policies that together can advance a common cause. And it's about cultivating partnerships and working in collaboration with brave hearts and like minds to create positive, lasting change.
It's not just a high-minded way to work; it's the only way. The problems that now confront our planet and its people are of such magnitude and complexity that no one can solve them alone.
Fortunately, we don't have to do it alone. As surely as the well-being of nature and people go hand in hand, so do your support and our results.
One of CI's greatest strengths is the steadfast commitment of our supporters, who work hand in hand with us to forge a brighter future for the planet and its people. It is their contributions and partnership that make our work possible. Learn more about CI's successes of 2010
