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.

2015 Annual Report

"We rely on nature to fulfill our needs for food, water and a stable climate. Society has failed to account for the value of her forests, grasslands and wetlands, her oceans, coral reefs and rivers. But listening to Mother Nature is not enough. We must act."
