From rapid scientific assessments of targeted habitats to sustained engagement with local and indigenous groups, CI is committed to the active research and scientific investigation that is required as we partner fully with thousands of groups to develop the examples and experience required to deliver change.
Whether building a "green wall" of new trees around Jakarta, Indonesia or discovering an un-named legless lizard in Brazil, CI staff is digging into the world’s most irreplaceable ecosystems – proving their value so we can protect them for generations to come.
Nature is our proving ground and our purpose: Because without nature, people cannot thrive.
