Conservation International is highlighting incredible leaders making a difference in their communities. Josphine Ekiru grew up in the Turkana pastoralist community of Northern Kenya. From an early age, Ekiru felt a sense responsibility to her community, to its biodiversity and to future generations. Through her incredible work, she’s now fulfilling her desire to make a difference. Ekiru has taken on a leading role as peace coordinator at the Northern Rangelands Trust, where she works with peace ambassadors. And she’s training 25 more women to follow in her footsteps. #WomenOnAMission #IWD2020 Don’t miss the second installment of the “Women on a Mission” series. This video was made possible thanks to Sony, who, through our partnership, helps Conservation International capture stories like Josphine Ekiru’s and bring to life humanity’s relationship with nature.

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.
