Our primary focus is to find ways to conserve Earth’s biological diversity where it is richest, but also most threatened. We do this through our programmes, which focus on conservation for overlooked regions, ecosystems and species, providing funding, support and networking opportunities for a broad range of conservationists and NGOs.
At the same time, we recognise that in-situ conservation is just one important piece of the puzzle if we are to reverse biodiversity loss and become – as a species – better stewards of the lands, rivers, seas and all the incredible species and ecosystems we share a planet with.
Engaging beyond conservation
We understand that no matter how much support goes to the people and organisations protecting nature on the frontlines of biodiversity loss and climate change, without more deep-rooted changes in the systems and cultural norms that are fuelling these ecological crises, conservation alone will never be enough.
So we look beyond conservation to explore opportunities for collaboration and creativity, to seed discussion and cultivate spaces to share knowledge within the philanthropy and finance sectors, the arts and creative industries and beyond. We connect with others whose values align with our own and who are working towards positive change for the planet.
Through our Synchronicity Portfolio, we fund, support and collaborate with people and organisations seeking systemic and cultural change that addresses the loss of nature and promotes biological and cultural diversity.
Diversity is not just a concept; it is the process by which life assures itself. Every species, every behaviour, every tradition, and every relationship contributes to the continuous emergence of the diversity of life.
We initiate and co-create events, discussions, webinars, and creative collaborations to champion effective conservation approaches, and engage a range of audiences across finance, philanthropy and the arts.
