Going where the need for conservation is greatest
The heart of our approach lies in identifying ecologically important places, ecosystems and species, globally, that are threatened or face emerging threats, but are largely overlooked or poorly served by conservation funding and effort. Our goal is to build networks of support and funding for the people and organisations working to conserve these places and species.
While conservation funds and action are often directed towards iconic regions and charismatic species, our focus is on the gaps inbetween: a highly biodiverse region that receives little conservation attention; species that few people know or care about, but which are no less important; a vulnerable yet vital ecosystem that remains out of sight, out of mind to all but a few.
“Today’s problems are not simple single issues with obvious solutions, they are complex interwoven challenges that need connected thinking if we are to address them adequately. Synchronicity Earth is one of the few organisations taking the broad view, with sufficient ambition in scope and purpose to really make a difference.”
Dr Jerome Lewis, Lecturer in Social Anthropology, UCL Anthropology, University College London
Funding effective conservation shouldn’t be a challenge – not for the conservationist, and not for the donor. The good news is, conservation works, and there is excellent work worthy of our support. The not so good news – to have significant impact, we need to do much more.
Synchronicity Earth is creating new models for generating long-term strategic support for our partners. Smart giving, made easier.
We work with a wide range of organisations, from small, local NGOs in sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia and Melanesia, to well-known international conservation charities and organisations such as the IUCN.
