Ruos Sophy and Keo Mao are just a few of millions who depend on Cambodia's Tonle Sap lake for their protein and their livelihoods. They live on the lake, they eat from the lake, and they support their family through sustainable fishing practices. Conservation International (CI) has been working with Sophy, Mao, and other villagers throughout the Tonle Sap to ensure the lake continues to support the people who depend on it. By teaching sustainable fishing practices, preventing deforestation in the region, and encouraging smart business decisions, CI has managed to prove that improving lives and protecting the environment can go hand in hand. | Learn more: Follow CI on Twitter: Follow CI on Facebook:

Nature Is Speaking

Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.

That’s the message of our provocative, celebrity-studded campaign “Nature Is Speaking.” Our aim is to raise awareness that people need nature in order to survive. Our goal is simple: It’s time to change the conversation about nature to focus on what we all have in common: Our shared humanity.
