With your help, we can do much more!

The Southern Cone Conservation Leadership Fund, established in July 2010, provides a unique opportunity to help conserve the ecological richness of the Southern Cone of South America and build a sustainable future for the region. By making a gift to this fund, you will support the formation of leaders -- policy makers, field scientists, planners, grass roots organizers, educators, directors of NGOs, and environmentally responsible business leaders -- who will guide conservation efforts in the region for decades to come. Your contributions will build in-country institutions and foster partnerships that will better conserve the region's natural resources while preserving livelihoods of local people.

The complex challenges of balancing biodiversity conservation, sustainable resource use, and human well-being are growing exponentially in the Southern Cone, and the need for leadership in all areas is urgent. Private contributions are key to expanding the Southern Cone Conservation Leadership (SCCL) Initiative to meet this need.
