A growing number of scientists and activists are convinced that the way to protect our environment is through the preservation of entire ecosystems and biospheres: areas in which the complex interactions between lifeforms in their natural habitat are restored and protected. While many groups we support are working on distinct pieces of the environmental puzzle, the groups listed in this section are working to fit those pieces together to create regions of vibrant biodiversity.
Grants given to groups in this category totaled $491,350.
