What is The Conservation Project International?

T-CPI aims to build a global conservation community, building strategic partnerships and collaborations, to address some of our most pressing conservation issues.

By acknowledging the all-encompassing threat we face, T-CPI aims to focus on four primary areas of concern including:

1. OCEANS AND MARINE CONSERVATION: With only around 5% of our oceans protected, T-CPI will be looking extensively at how we can better protect our oceans and support innovative research and community projects which are looking to improve the health of our oceans.

2. EDUCATION: T-CPI aims to take a lead role in embracing technological change as a facilitator for educational change, empowering individuals to take direct action in conservation. Through our educational programmes, T-CPI will be working closely with both schools here in the UK and globally, as a process of influencing people’s attitudes, knowledge and experience about conservation.

3. SUSTAINABILITY AND CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY: In our mission to secure a more sustainable future for our children, the role of the private sector has become increasingly important. T-CPI aims to work with the private sector in improving corporate accountability and sustainability and advocating for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

4. WILDLIFE TRAFFICKING AND ENVIRONMENTAL CRIME: With a value of between $7 billion and $23 billion, illegal wildlife trafficking is the fourth most lucrative global crime, behind arms, people smuggling and the arms trade. T-CPI aims to work with global leaders and strategic partners to help cease and end this illicit trade.
