Our Approach

Our donors have protected more than 45 million acres

We are confident that the simplest and most cost-effective solution to prevent deforestation is to create legally-recognized protected areas where forests and their species can continue contributing to the health of the global ecosystem.

Our unique, cost-effective conservation model has been implemented successfully for over 30 years.
