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.
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.
"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."
With support from our generous donors, Conservation International is acting with urgency to save nature for the health and well-being of humanity. This report showcases how our approach — founded on partnerships with governments, businesses and communities — is inspiring change around the world.
