Globally, only 5% of the natural lands at high risk of development are protected. Demands on land and water continue to increase, so we must do more, faster.
We won’t survive without clean water and land. We also need healthy, diverse oceans for fishing, working & playing. We have helped protect more than 103 million acres (41.6 million hectares) of land, conserve thousands of river miles & develop more than 100 marine projects. Working with governments, corporations, local partners & you, we can protect more nature between today & 2025 than we have in our history.
