Integrity Beyond Reproach
We will meet the highest ethical and professional standards in all of our organizational endeavors and, in doing so, we hold ourselves accountable to our mission and to the public.
Respect for People, Communities and Culture
Enduring conservation success depends on the active involvement of people and partners whose lives and livelihoods are linked to the natural systems we seek to conserve. We respect all and forge relationships based on mutual benefit and trust.
Commitment to Diversity
We recognize that conservation is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people of widely diverse backgrounds, experiences and identities. We will recruit and develop staff to create a diverse, inclusive and equitable organization.
Our strength and vitality lie in being one organization working together in local places and across borders to achieve our global mission. We value the collective and collaborative efforts that are so essential to our success.
Tangible Lasting Results
We use the best available science, a creative spirit, and a non-confrontational approach to craft innovative solutions to complex conservation problems at scales that matter and in ways that will endure.
I am an impatient optimist. The challenges facing our shared planet are immense, but with the right team in place, I believe we can create a brighter future for people and nature.
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Since global threats to the environment do not discriminate among backgrounds, beliefs and cultures, conservation also requires a rich blend of perspectives, ideas and viewpoints that only a truly diverse workforce can provide.
