Description

CI applies innovations in science, economics, policy and community participation to protect the Earth's plant and animal biodiversity in major tropical wilderness areas and key marine ecosystems. CI focuses on securing the critical benefits that nature provides to humanity, such as food, fresh water, livelihoods and a stable climate. An important aspect of CI's work is promoting the dissemination of critical marine information to the global community, in order to 'unify international marine stakeholders though knowledge sharing and information exchange'. Their Center for Oceans partners with communities, organizations and governments around the world.
