We invest in people who have the potential to advance the future of conservation.

Kinship Conservation Fellows operates on three primary strategies:

Capacity building allows for greater implementation of market-based approaches. Each year, 18 conservationists participate in our month-long intensive training Fellows program, which focuses on developing the skills needed to implement market-based conservation practices to solve environmental challenges. 

In 2018, we will expand our programming to include the training of early to mid-level career conservationists in regional workshops that focus on community-based projects.

Thought leadership promotes greater influence within the larger conservation community by showcasing the work of Fellows, sharing research and evaluation findings, and lessons learned through the implementation of market-based strategies.

In 2018, we will expand the understanding and use of market-based strategies by developing resources to share with the broader conservation community. These resources are examples of how market-based strategies are implemented in the real world, and can be used as teaching tools.

Community serves to accelerate positive change and influence to address environmental challenges. Our Fellows join a global community where they can connect with past cohorts and conservation practitioners to use combined skills and innovative ideas to accelerate change and maximize conservation impact.

In 2018, we will facilitate collaboration among our Fellows to scale their work in order to improve conservation outcomes.
