New protected areas, species discoveries, and more in Nature and Culture’s latest donor impact report.
Nature and Culture International’s strength is in people who share the same dreams: of diverse vibrant cultures; of forests and savannas alive with birds, plants, and frogs; of clean water and air and a livable climate. Our strength is in 66 local staff and the 275 rural and indigenous communities we collaborate with in Latin America.
Our strength is in hundreds of dedicated supporters like you who protected more than one million acres in 2020. This number is higher than our annual average over the last 25 years!
Even in a global pandemic, your gifts have enabled Nature and Culture to do incredible things. All we can say is thank you
As exciting as our accomplishments are, they also underscore our urgent race against time. Scientists predict that climate change and habitat loss could drive more than one million species to extinction within the next fifty years. We risk losing myriad plants and animals before we even learn they exist, which is heartbreaking to contemplate.
We are confident that the Nature and Culture Community can take on these challenges together. With dedicated supporters like you, using a combination of the innovative and the tried-and-true, we can protect nature and empower cultures for generations to come.
A special thank you to our partners Andes Amazon Fund, Earth Innovation Institute, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Partnerships for Forests, Tinker Foundation, and World Land Trust whose generous financial support helped us achieve the goals highlighted in this donor impact report.
