All of our projects start and end with dedicated people

We establish strategic partnerships with the world’s most experienced and committed conservationists and their organizations across the tropics. Together, we identify critical sites that will benefit most from permanent protection.

Free, prior and informed consent

Indigenous people steward three-quarters of the world’s remaining biodiversity. Many of our projects bolster that stewardship, securing ownership and management of land and natural resources for local and indigenous people. Every one of our projects engages with local and indigenous people, and none proceeds without their freely given, prior, fully informed consent (FPIC).

Success Story

Saving real acres of rainforest

"This fruitful and long-lasting relationship has resulted in the protection and sustainable management of millions of beautiful acres of Peruvian Amazon, securing legal ownership of Indigenous territories and establishing natural protected areas co-managed by local Indigenous communities.”
