We help breakthroughs break through.
Facing the dual crises of accelerated climate change and biodiversity loss, the odds may seem insurmountable. But ideas are powerful, and so is partnership. For 70 years, we've beaten the odds by partnering with communities across the globe to elevate the most effective natural solutions.
That’s how by 2030, we’ll protect more than 10% of the world’s oceans, help 100 million people become more climate resilient, and take 650 million cars’ worth of emissions out of the air every year.
Through cutting-edge science and age-old wisdom, we're bringing the best ideas to light. Here are some of them in action:
When deforestation threatens the Amazon, we plant sustainable solutions.
We are working with farmers to plant sustainable agro-forests of cocoa trees, banana trees and a mix of native hardwood trees to help protect and restore the Amazon while providing better livelihoods.
When severe fires threaten people and the planet, we let wisdom light the way.
After decades of fire suppression, Indigenous Peoples are rekindling the ancient practice of controlled burns, restoring forests and cultural traditions.
When 840 million people face flood risks, we leverage nature to ensure success.
What’s happening on a 60-kilometer stretch of coastline on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula may change how the world values its coral reefs.
When cities are at risk, we prescribe healthier coastlines.
On Long Island, we're using the power of medical technology to help conservationists respond to the climate crisis.
To overcome the barriers ahead, it will take all of us.
