A large portion of globally important biodiversity is found in a relatively small number of places. By effectively protecting and managing these outstanding “legacy landscapes” while respecting the human rights and the needs of local people, we can conserve a significant share of the earth’s precious biodiversity. Protected areas also play an important role in strengthening climate resilience and fighting climate change.
We source significant and sustained funding from both public and private donors to provide financing of one million dollars per year to protected areas with a long-term, flexible program approach. Our goal is to fund a global, diversified portfolio of at least 30 of the world’s most relevant biodiversity hotspots by 2030.
