Wildlife Conservation Society

Our partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society is working on climate solutions that also protect biodiversity and sustain livelihoods through our Conservation Carbon program.

  • The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is a member of the Climate, Community & Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA), a group of companies and non-governmental organizations committed to developing tools to combat climate change, while contributing to biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. more

  • CI has partnered with the WCS, which manages the Makira Forest Project in Madagascar. This project is working to reduce the deforestation rate of Makira, prevent species extinctions, work with local communities to develop sustainable activities that provide alternative approaches to slash and burn agriculture, and demonstrate a viable market for some of the forest’s ecosystem services such as carbon offsets.
