We create programmes to bolster support and funding for urgent conservation challenges.
We do not have a fixed geographical focus. We develop programmes and support partners based on our research, which identifies urgent conservation challenges where there are gaps in funding and action, and threats which are not being fully addressed.
Wherever we support and fund conservation, we always try to be mindful of the bigger picture: who else is working in this area? Who are the other stakeholders with influence?
Is there room for better coordination of action for greater impact? Are there other groups and alliances we can collaborate with?
Our programmes are born from the relationships we build with partners, developing greater understanding of the conservation context and understanding where a more coordinated approach, both to action on the ground and to funding, can help bring about deeper change more quickly.
The development of our programmes is a response to some of the obstacles we think can sometimes limit the effectiveness of conservation.
Not all of the partners we support belong to a programme, but where possible we always look at how their work fits into the bigger picture, give them access to support networks to connect them to others working on the same issue and do all we can to amplify their impact.
