Understanding Threatened Ecosystems And Training The Conservation Army

Founded by Dr. Thomas Lovejoy, the Amazon Biodiversity Center is a conservation research project in the Brazilian Amazon that studies the impacts of fragmentation on rainforest ecosystems. 

Their overall goal is to protect the biodiversity of the Amazon Basin by bridging the gap between tropical conservation science and land management policy. 

The science at the heart of the Amazon Biodiversity Center is also integral to the vision to set aside half the Earth for nature, making an ever-stronger case for protecting large areas of nature wherever possible, expanding forest fragments through restoration and through providing natural connections. 

Wildlife & Landscapes

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.
