2019 Annual Report

We are in the midst of a crisis that is the greatest humanity has ever faced. The amazon is burning. The arctic is melting. And in a time when our assault on nature has given rise to deadly zoonotic diseases, one has become a catastrophic pandemic.

But the young are raising their voices full of determination, resolve and rage. Listen to them: if we do not take care of our planet, nothing else will really matter.

2018 Annual Report

What if nature reached its fullest potential as a climate solution? What if nature and people could thrive in the same place, forever? What if we could protect the ocean at a scale unlike any we've seen before? What if we could spur innovations in science and finance that accelerate conservation everywhere? What if we stand together and dramatically increase progress for the future?

At Conservation International, we are proud to have some of the leading minds in natural and social science, policy, finance and business working together to improve people’s lives through the care and protection of nature. Their insights are helping societies develop and thrive in a more sustainable, equitable way.


2017 Annual Report

Since our beginning, in 1987, Conservation International has worked with partners to protect more than 1.5 billion acres of the most critical landscapes and seascapes around the world — equivalent to two thirds of the United States. It is an impact visible from space. And it has changed the trajectory of global conservation and positively impacted the lives of millions of people in over 30 countries.


2016 Annual Report

We live in uncertain times. But there is one thing we can be sure of: People need nature to survive. At Conservation International, we have always done what is right for communities and for nature — regardless of whether it is easy or conventional. And through your support, we have thrived.
