Conserving Biodiversity on Land and in Water

Conservation is an American tradition that creates and sustains economic opportunity and protects the plants, animals, and natural places that communities need to thrive. By investing in the world’s priority biodiversity areas, we can help the world’s most vulnerable people grow nutritious food, build peace, and commit to good governance of the environment.
