For nearly 30 years, Conservation International (CI) has been protecting nature for the benefit of all. We know that human beings are totally dependent on nature — and that by saving nature, we’re saving ourselves. To that end, CI is helping to build a healthier, more prosperous and more productive planet. We do this through science, policy, and partnerships with countries, communities and companies. We employ more than 1,000 people and work with more than 2,000 partners in 30 countries. Over the years, CI has helped establish 1,200 protected areas across 78 countries, safeguarding more than 730 million hectares of land, marine and coastal areas.
