With our 10-year strategic plan, we set a course to fearlessly and determinedly act to protect and conserve nature, safeguard at-risk wildlife, and fight biodiversity loss and climate change at the same time. There is still time to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of these two crises, but the window is rapidly closing. We need to take bold, co-ordinated actions, in the places that will deliver the greatest impact to both species and the climate, and in a way that lays the groundwork for long-term, meaningful change.
By 2030, we are committed to expanding viable habitat for native wildlife populations, implementing nature-based solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere, and reducing industrial stressors in regions of wildlife decline or risk. For an entire decade, we will do everything we can to achieve these goals, understanding that collaboration and partnerships are essential to our success. Wherever possible, we will support Indigenous-led conservation, always in a way that advances Indigenous rights and governance.
We believe that healthy and diverse wildlife is a strong measure of the well-being of ecosystems and communities. A brighter future is possible — but the next 10 years are critical if we are going to reverse the planet’s path. We will lead the way by building on diverse knowledge systems, fostering technical science and innovation, and joining with partners from all walks of life to transform our relationship with nature.
