We’re facing dual threats with the climate crisis and extreme loss of biodiversity, and we won’t survive without clean water and land.

In the next decade, we're working to protect ourselves and our planet by conserving 650 million hectares of healthy land, 30 million hectares of freshwater, and 4 billion hectares of oceans. Through protected areas, sustainable fishing, forest management, and working with Indigenous peoples, we're taking action to shape a better future for people and the planet.
