Our Impact

Where and how we work

We work around the world in several ways: on-the-ground with local partners, through conservation partnerships like the KBA and SMART partnerships, and through extensive granting mechanisms. Our work primarily takes place in global hotspots and high biodiversity wilderness areas, maintaining our focus on Earth's most threatened wildlands and wildlife.
