ABOUT CONSERVATION INTERNATIONAL
For more than 30 years, Conservation International has been protecting the nature that people need to thrive.
Conservation International experts produce groundbreaking scientific research that informs our work. Starting with our first project in Bolivia 30 years ago, Conservation International has supported 1,200 protected areas across 77 countries, safeguarding more than 601 million hectares of land and sea.
Conservation International currently works on the ground in more than 30 countries to safeguard the forests, oceans, rivers, lakes and wetlands that provide food and water for people and wildlife, sustain economies and help secure a stable climate. We work with 2,000+ partners at every level—from remote villages to executive suites.
