Why International Conservation Benefits the U.S.

Bolstering America's economy, improving our security & meeting our growing needs for natural resources

International conservation provides benefits not only to people and wildlife in the developing world, but to every American citizen—by bolstering America’s economy, improving our security, and meeting our growing needs for natural resources.

 

America’s role in maintaining global stability is rooted not only in our economic, moral, and military strength, but the fact that U.S. interests touch every industry and sphere of influence in the world. U.S. interests can only be protected by active international leadership. At a time when we must tighten our fiscal budget dramatically, it has never been more essential to make the international conservation investments to prevent endemic economic dislocation and chaos at a global scale.
