Conservation International Protects Nature Like This

Every drop you drink, every bite you eat, every breath you take — it all comes from nature.

 

We have a plan to keep nature safe

Securing the health of Earth’s climate, ecosystems and biodiversity is essential to the well-being of all people. Worldwide, Conservation International is working to improve the lives of people everywhere by protecting oceans, forests and other living ecosystems.

 

Stabilize our climate

We are protecting and restoring ecosystems including forests, mangroves and peatlands that absorb climate-warming carbon.

Double Ocean Protection

We aim to double the total amount of ocean area under protection, while developing innovative science to protect the high seas, coral reefs and mangroves that support all life on Earth.

Expand Planet-Positive Economies

We are helping countries build self-sustaining economies that are built on the protection, not the destruction, of nature.

How we work

Since 1987, Conservation International has combined fieldwork with innovations in science, policy and finance to secure the critical benefits that nature provides to humanity.

Innovations in Science

Conservation International is behind some of the most extraordinary, cutting-edge conservation science taking place today. Our research is cited more than leading universities.

 

Innovations in Finance

From our launch of the world's first debt-for-conservation swap in 1987, Conservation International is changing the equation to make nature more valuable alive than destroyed.

 

Partnering with Communities

Respecting the rights of Indigenous people and local communities was one of our founding principles, and it guides our work to this day.

 

Working with Governments

Our science and expertise are helping governments take action to protect nature and the benefits it provides to people.

 

Conservation International’s approach to conservation puts human well-being on equal footing with environmental goals. We respect human rights, ensure our programs are designed with gender equality in mind and create opportunities for local communities to earn a living while also helping nature.
