“When communities are treated as part of the solution rather than part of the problem, they are willing to take responsibility for conservation.”

-Dr. Rob Horwich, founder


Community Conservation isn’t just the name of our nonprofit organization, it’s also a whole approach to conservation work.

At its core, the definition of community-based conservation is just what it sounds like: efforts to protect biodiversity in which the local community participates as much as possible. Scientists and the people who live in a certain place work together to save species living there.

Our Mission

In order to promote global biodiversity and sustainable land use, Community Conservation Inc catalyzes, facilitates, and empowers local people to manage and conserve natural resources within the social, cultural, and economic context of their communities and facilitates widespread, global adoption of community-based conservation.

Stand With Us

Join the cause. The best way to protect the biodiversity we all value is to work with people at the community level. Your contribution empowers local people to protect nature.
