Conservation International- Phillippines (CI) is part of a global organization dedicated to protecting nature for the benefit of everyone on Earth. CI helps ensure that the integrity of ecological processes in very high biodiversity areas is preserved by working to create protected areas or networks of protected areas and ensure that the most effective governance and management systems are in place. CI is working to empower communities in rural, high biodiversity area so they can protect their own natural resources. CI is committed to helping societies adopt a more sustainable approach to development by helping reverse the degradation of Earths natural resources. CI accomplishes this with the help of their partners to demonstrate that protecting nature will ensure a better life for all Filipinos.
