Over the past 30 years, Conservation International has protected 6 million square kilometers (2.3 million square miles) of critical land and sea — an area more than twice the size of India.

But today, the ongoing threat of climate change and a global loss of biodiversity are affecting all life on Earth. In response, we are pioneering nature-based solutions to climate change, conserving oceans on an unprecedented scale and ensuring that people and nature thrive together.

Without your help, none of this is possible. Your gift today helps create a sustainable future for the benefit of us all.
