GWC prevents the loss of the world's most critically endangered species and irreplaceable places. From the Neotropics to Southeast Asia, GWC strategizes with government representatives and conservation partners to design approaches to solving some of the world's most pressing environmental challenges.

Science-based Decisions

We help enable a deeper understanding of global biodiversity--and how to best conserve it--by working directly with the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and  Key Biodiversity Area Partnership, and in turn applying that knowledge to help prioritize our conservation work.

Creating Protected Areas

Creating protected areas are simply the single most important tool protecting our planet's biodiversity.  Protecting the most irreplaceable places maintains our healthy ecosystems that provide us freshwater, clean air, and stable weather which are essential to our own long-term well-being.

Recovering Endangered Species

We go beyond saving species from extinction to recovering them so they are no longer dependent on conservation actions. GWC works to conserve groups of closely related species that are disproportionately threatened with extinction. We cultivate and empower global leadership on those species groups and build coalitions creating efficiencies among projects.

Exploration is core to our scientific approach to conservation. We explore some of the most remote corners of our planet to discover how and where we can have the biggest impact on imperiled species. Our global journeys allow us to make strategic decisions on how to channel our resources – and we’re bringing you with us on our journey of discovery.

Managing Protected Areas

We constantly strive to improve the way protected areas are managed to ensure a safer future for biodiversity. We take a multidisciplinary approach, involving not just conservation biology, but also community involvement, new forms of land use, anthropology, law enforcement, economics, and business management.

Wildlife Crime Prevention

We focus on preventing wildlife crime, rather than punishing offenders. This means working closely with communities to develop prevention strategies that take into account the societal and cultural drivers of wildlife crime, and implementing systems and technology to stop poachers before a crime is even committed.

Cultivating Conservation Leadership

Passionate people, communities and organizations all over the world that want to make a big difference for the wildlife of our planet. We partner with these individuals and groups to help ensure they have access the resources and expertise they need to most effectively protect wildlife and wildlands.
