Women play an immensely important role in the conservation world. From contributing ground-breaking research, to upholding traditional local knowledge, women are often the frontline of preserving nature and nurturing the communities around them.

Still, for many women in conservation, these roles often come with extra hurdles and challenges. That’s why it is essential we elevate women’s voices, stories, and impact – so they can be supported to continue this vital work.

In 2023, 64% of our partners had women in leadership roles, and we are striving to increase this. By 2027, we plan to ensure 80% of the organisations we support have women in leadership positions.

Here are just some of the women we collaborate with, who are making incredible progress as changemakers – empowering communities, protecting wildlife and people, and leading the way for women in conservation.
