We live in uncertain times.
But there is one thing we can be sure of:
People need nature to survive.
At CI, we have always done what is right for communities and for nature — regardless of whether it is easy or conventional. Our message is a powerful one. We know that there is a direct link between conservation and the economic well-being and security interests of all people and all nations. We know that sustainability is essential for stable livelihoods and long-term economic growth. We know that conserving nature and its benefits is an imperative, not a luxury. And through your support, we have thrived.
