About Conservation International

 

People depend on nature for many things. A stable climate. Clean air. Fresh water. Abundant food. Cultural resources. And the incalculable additional benefits the world’s biodiversity provides. Conservation International (CI) works to ensure a healthy and productive planet for us all.

 

Yet economic and infrastructure development, which are so necessary for human well-being, can also have serious impacts on nature. That is why CI is working at every level – from remote villages to the offices of presidents and premiers – to help move whole societies toward a smarter development path.

 

Through science, policy and field work, we’re applying smart solutions to protect the resources that we all depend on. We help communities, countries and societies protect tropical forests, lush grasslands, rivers, wetlands, abundant lakes and the sea. Only through properly valuing the essential services these ecosystems provide can we create a sustainable development path that will benefit all people for generations to come.

 

For further information about Conservation International please visit: www.conservation.org.

 

Vice President, Communications

 

Every human life on Earth depends on a natural world capable of supporting our needs. But we are taking more from nature than it can replace, weakening the Earth’s ability to provide the clean air, fresh water and food we depend on. Conservation International leads influential teams—governments, industries and community leaders—who design and implement large-scale economic and policy changes that restore the balance between human consumption and nature’s production. In order to be successful in its mission, Conservation International must be a well-known and trusted brand.

 

Reporting to the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), the Vice President of Communications is a key member of the Brand and Communications team, providing strong, creative, energetic, strategic leadership on all of CI’s communications initiatives.
