OUR PURPOSE

A local-focused approach to saving wild places

We have protected over 25 million acres of the most biodiverse landscapes across Latin America and sequestered over 3 billion tons of carbon, in partnership with local and Indigenous communities.

We promote solutions that are born in local communities because we live where we work. Our inclusive community-based approach is what makes us unique. It’s also what’s worked for us for over 25 years.
