$1 billion commitment to helping conserve 30% of the Earth’s lands and oceans by 2030
As part of its $1 billion commitment to helping conserve 30% of the Earth’s lands and oceans by 2030, the Wyss Campaign for Nature is supporting communities, indigenous peoples, and organizations that are working to establish, expand, or improve the management of parks and protected areas around the world.
The first 9 locally-led conservation projects that the Wyss Campaign for Nature is supporting – through a philanthropic investment of more than $48 million – will help protect an estimated 10 million acres of land and 17,000 square kilometers of large, ecologically-rich ocean areas across thirteen countries. The lands and waters that are being conserved through these projects are to be managed in the public trust and open for public use and enjoyment. In the coming years, the Wyss Campaign for Nature will announce additional philanthropic support to conservation projects around the world.
