Wildlife Works’ mission is to create and implement market-based solutions for wildlife conservation that drive measurable sustainable development for and by local communities.
Wildlife Works is community-centered wildlife conservation company that implements market-based initiatives to protect the planet’s threatened wilderness and endangered wildlife. The company was founded on the premise that if we want wildlife in our world, it has to work for local communities who share their environment. Wildlife Works’ conservation projects drive direct financing to forest communities to fund their own economic development while preventing millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from entering the atmosphere annually through the REDD+ marketplace. Recognized as a leader in the REDD+ sector, Wildlife Works is the first company to achieve verification under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and the Climate Community and Biodiversity Standard (CCB).
