Now that the United States will take steps to withdraw from the historic Paris Agreement on climate change, it’s even more imperative that communities, companies and countries around the world step up to keep warming well below 2°C and build resilience to the impacts of climate change. Conservation International’s focus on nature-based climate action is a powerful strategy that represents at least 30 percent of the solution to address the causes of climate change, and simultaneously helps us adapt to harmful climate impacts. To make sure nature plays its part in addressing climate change, CI works closely with indigenous people to increase stewardship of their lands; with businesses to create deforestation-free supply chains of commodities such as coffee, palm oil and soy; and with nations to implement sound climate change policies. Join CI’s Climate Change Lead Shyla Raghav for an exclusive conversation on how protecting and restoring nature is crucial to combatting climate change, and how CI is helping drive action on climate change both within and apart from the Paris Agreement.
We believe strongly in the power of visual storytelling to educate, inspire and affect change. Conservation International's filmmakers traverse the globe, spotlighting the people, challenges and successful projects that our programs are pioneering. Watch, share and reach out if you would like to learn more.
Dulce — A Short Documentary
In the coastal village of La Ensenada, Colombia, where digging for shellfish is a way of life, everyone must learn to swim eventually — even little Dulce. But as the effects of climate change begin to threaten the village's livelihood, the carefree swimming lessons led by Dulce's mother take on a sense of urgency.

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.
