Understanding what needs to be done to protect Earth’s wildlife and wild places.
Since Synchronicity Earth was founded in 2009, we have been dedicated to understanding where we can have the greatest conservation impact. Through desk-based research and field visits, discussions with our expert advisors and relationships with both large and small NGOs, we develop effective and creative approaches to supporting and funding action that addresses some of the most overlooked and underfunded conservation challenges, globally.
Our Research Process
The global conservation landscape is vast and can at times appear fragmented. Without the analysis we undertake it would be difficult to understand the current and emerging threats to landscapes and species and to identify where funding is needed.
Our research helps us to understand where conservation is needed in the most naturally diverse but threatened places around the world. We look at how much environmental funding goes to different types of intervention, the threats faced by species and ecosystems in these places and the individuals, organisations and alliances taking action to address the issues.
Our goal is to understand where there are gaps in conservation action and funding and where we can provide support and funding to boost conservation effort and bring lasting change.
Putting Research into Action
We work with partners from across the conservation spectrum, providing opportunities and coordination for donors to provide funding and support that will bolster their work and help to bring about better conservation outcomes. Where there are effective alliances working on overlooked and underfunded conservation challenges, we get behind them and lend our support. Where there is a clear need for more effective coordination and collaboration, we develop strategic programmes to pool knowledge and resources and bring more funding to a particular species, ecosystem or region.
Our guiding principles – scientific rigour, openness, collaboration – inform our research and how we develop our programmes, helping us to overcome some of the obstacles that can hold back progress towards more effective conservation.
