Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions. Explore our programs below.
Wildlife & Landscape
We scale projects protecting critical eco-regions around the world and connecting often isolated islands of habitat to restore threatened wildlife populations.
Marine Life & Oceans
We drive efforts to protect 30% of the world’s oceans by 2030 through the creation and expansion of marine protected areas.
We are focused on dramatically increasing ambition to tackle the climate crisis by promoting the best climate solutions, including a transition to 100% renewable energy.
Environment Now California Program
LDF supports local efforts in Los Angeles and through our Environment Now statewide program to promote the transition to fully sustainable food, energy, water, and forests.
Media, Science & Technology
We are helping to bring conservation and grassroots environmentalism into the 21st century through cutting-edge media and the latest in technological innovation.
We fund indigenous-led programs to map and monitor native territories, defend land rights, develop sustainable livelihoods, and promote public advocacy efforts.
