Nothing CI does is possible without the support of our donors and partners.
Together, we're changing the world. We're changing lives. We're ensuring that people and nature continue to thrive, now and for generations to come.
Our approach is simple, yet transformative:
- We are protecting our natural wealth
...the essential places on Earth that provide our food, water and the very air we breathe — by ensuring that the most critical areas remain intact and capable of providing benefits to the communities that need them.
- We are fostering effective governance
...by working with governments and civil society, we provide tools, counsel and training that enable leaders to make better decisions for the long-term health and economic stability of their people.
- We are working with businesses
...that have big environmental impacts like mining, energy and agricultural companies — to ensure that production does not destroy the ecological health and vitality of nations.
To do these things, we first identify the innovations that are required to support our efforts. Then, we demonstrate our solutions on the ground by showing how protecting nature creates positive change for people. And we partner with influential institutions in order to amplify the lessons we learn in our efforts — spreading them far beyond the geographical boundaries of our field demonstrations.
We are proud to have some of the most original and passionate minds in conservation — trendsetting leaders, bold explorers, and pioneering researchers.
Building upon a strong foundation of science, partnership and field demonstration, CI empowers societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity. Learn more »
