<p>Conservation International works to spotlight and secure the critical benefits that nature provides to humanity.

Currently with offices in 29 countries and 2,000 partners worldwide, our reach is truly global.</p>
<p>Your contributions support our science, policy work and partnerships as we seek to solve the climate crisis and create a cleaner, healthier planet.</p>
<h3>Our Mission</h3>
<p>Building upon a strong foundation of science, partnership and field demonstration, Conservation International empowers societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity.</p>
<h3>Our Vision</h3>
<p>We imagine a healthy, prosperous world in which societies are forever committed to caring for and valuing nature, for the long-term benefit of people and all life on Earth.</p>
<h2>WE NEED NATURE</h2>
<p>Nature is life: Every breath you take, every drop you drink, every bite you eat — it all comes from nature. Here’s how Conservation International works to protect it.</p>
<h3>Protecting nature for climate</h3>
<p>We protect forests that absorb and store critical carbon by working with businesses and governments to account for their impacts on forests; enabling private investment in forest protection initiatives; and helping local and indigenous communities protect forests on their lands.</p>

<h3>Conserving our oceans</h3>
<p>We seek to double the world’s ocean area under protection while innovating new ways to sustain marine fisheries. We do this by helping countries secure and monitor their waters; enabling the inclusion of coastal habitats in climate policies; and disrupting damaging practices in the seafood sector.</p>

<h3>Nature-based development</h3>
<p>We promote self-sustaining, conservation-based economies in areas with the most importance for people and nature. We do this by creating new conservation funding models and production models for commodities, balancing demand with protection of essential natural resources.</p>

<h3>Innovation in science and finance</h3>
<p>We produce and apply science-based evidence to promote nature-based development, while working to make nature a viable and attractive investment. We do this by creating conservation tools that decision-makers need; publishing policy-relevant research; and attracting private capital for protecting nature.</p>
