As leaders in major conservation collaborations and pioneers in climate-smart conservation, we are helping our partners to incorporate climate-smart principles into ocean and land-use policies. Our goal is that public and private natural resource management entities, from local municipalities to international commissions, prioritize climate-smart conservation: to sustain vibrant, diverse ecosystems, enhance ecosystem services, improve the ability of nature and humans to adapt to change, and use nature to sequester carbon and reduce climate change impacts whenever possible.

By connecting our science to policies and conservation plans, we are helping to include climate-smart conservation priniciples into habitat management practices.
