Our Mission

Working in partnership with local people and communities, large landscape conservation connects working lands, urban areas, and wild lands into whole, healthy landscapes that allow nature to flourish.

Since large landscape conservation involves great geographical scales and touches many lives, it requires a collaborative effort—not something one organization can fully shoulder alone. We see ourselves as the “hub” for large landscape conservation, connecting people, organizations and resources to foster powerful solutions that respect diverse stakeholders.

50% by 2050

Why 2020?

We can stop the sixth mass extinction if we protect approximately 50% of the 846 ecoregions that provide habitat for all of Earth's biodiversity. That means finding leaders and organizations around the world willing to align exisiting efforts around protecting and interconnecting nature in the region.
