Conservation International (CI) applies innovations in science, economics, policy and community participation to protect the Earth’s richest regions of plant and animal diversity and demonstrate that human societies can live harmoniously with nature. Founded in 1987, CI works in more than 40 countries on four continents to help people find economic alternatives without harming their natural environments.

The Global Conservation Fund finances the creation, expansion and long-term management of protected areas in the world’s biodiversity hotspots, high-biodiversity wilderness areas and important marine regions. The Fund has enabled CI regional programs and more than 40 partners to help protect 38 million hectares (94 million acres) of the world’s biologically richest land and seascapes. www.conservation.org/gcf
