    EditTitle:CI and HP listen to tropical forests
    EditText:

    Conservation International and HP are using science, technology and innovation to address one of the world’s most complex environmental challenges. Together, in 2013, we launched HP Earth Insights, a partnership that leverages HP technology to improve data collected through the Tropical Ecology Assessment and Monitoring (TEAM) Network, a program that captures real-time data from tropical forests around the world. HP Earth Insights serves as an early-warning system for conservation efforts by quickly analyzing that data to generate species trends — such as whether a population is declining — across 17 research sites and more than 275 species.

    The Wildlife Picture Index (WPI) Analytics System, built by HP, is a comprehensive dashboard and analytics tool. The insights it provides enable scientists, government officials and the public to see changes in ecology and biodiversity unfold in real time.

    Building on the effort to better understand what is happening inside tropical forests, HP also supported CI’s "Nature Is Speaking" campaign as the exclusive sponsor of the #NatureIsSpeaking hashtag, and committing US$ 1 million for consumer use of #NatureIsSpeaking on social media platforms.

    EditTitle:Disney needs nature
    EditText:

    For more than two decades, Conservation International and Disney have worked together to protect nature, save threatened species and improve human well-being. The collaboration reflects Disney’s commitment to reducing its carbon emissions and slowing deforestation for the benefit of wildlife, communities and future generations.

    In 2015, CI teamed up on the release of Disneynature’s feature film “Monkey Kingdom,” which supported CI’s efforts to protect monkeys and endangered species across Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Indonesia. In addition, the film helped CI to achieve more than one billion shares on social media. This effort will continue to protect monkeys and other endangered species, and also help to restore forest areas that help provide fresh water to tens of millions of people.

    Highlight: To date, Disney has made the largest corporate investment in CI’s forest carbon efforts, including seed funding to help launch a forest carbon offset project in Peru’s Alto Mayo Protected Forest.

    EditTitle:Demonstrating that people need nature in the Caribbean Islands
    EditText:

    In Haiti, mangroves, beaches, lagoons and cays are essential for providing habitats for fish, sequestering carbon, buffering communities from the effects of storms and attracting tourists. Unfortunately, many of these areas have been decimated by overfishing, pollution and unplanned development. The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) has supported local conservation leaders such as CEPF grantee Jean Wiener, founder of Fondation pour la Protection de la Biodiversité Marine (FoProBiM), the only Haitian-operated and Haiti-based NGO dedicated to the protection and management of Haiti’s coastal and marine ecosystems. With funding from CEPF, Wiener and FoProBiM have protected Haiti’s delicate biodiversity, provided communities with new income opportunities and strengthened local organizations.

    Wiener was one of six recipients of the 2015 Goldman Environmental Prize, the world’s most prestigious award for grassroots environmental activists, for leading "community efforts to establish Haiti’s first marine protected areas by empowering Haitians to see the long-term value in sustainably managing fisheries and mangrove forests."

    EditTitle:Helping ecotourism take flight in northern Africa
    EditText:

    The Mediterranean Basin is one of the most popular tourism destinations, attracting nearly one-third of the world’s tourists annually. Unfortunately, all that attention puts pressure on the region’s natural resources.

    CEPF empowers communities to pursue ecotourism activities while also conserving the natural habitats that visitors come to see. In Tunisia, CEPF supported the Association Les Amis des Oiseaux (AAO), which has been developing ecotourism in northern Tunisia since 2013. AAO helps communities manage five of the country’s most important bird habitats, each of which benefits from support to rehabilitate tourism infrastructure and train local birding guides.

    Now, nonprofit organizations, government institutions and private sector partners at each site are starting to develop their own agendas — with biodiversity conservation at the heart of their plans. In a country where the tourism industry sustains 10 percent of the population and accounts for six percent of GDP, that’s no small victory — for nature and people.
