We are a growing network of Indigenous leaders, Knowledge Carriers, Guardians and allies working toward a shared vision for decolonized and regenerative Indigenous-led conservation. Together, we seek to bring sustainability and abundance to Indigenous-led nature and climate solutions, in part through financing to support community and conservation visions. Through collaboration, co-learning and reciprocity, we seek to connect Indigenous Nations and Communities to the resources and tools needed to advance Indigenous-led conservation such as Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs) and nature-based solutions.

Envisioning the Indigenous-led Conservation Economy
