At 5 years old, Karoline Marques took a trip to #theAmazon with her grandparents, and it was then that she was inspired to become a biologist. Ultimately this love of the forest and the animals that call it home led her to become an Amazon project manager at @ConservationOrg . To keep the Amazon rainforest standing there is a fundamental element that plays an equally important role as biodiversity: people that call the forest home. For local communities in the Amazon, their livelihoods, culture, #spirituality and health are all intimately connected to the #rainforest and #river. And while this vital ecosystem and the people that call it home face threats that put their lives and homes in danger, there is hope. The people of the forest are strong and resilient. The world is awakening to the importance of the Amazon for a stable climate. And Conservation International is supporting the communities that rely on it. Together, we will overcome. This forest is made up of life, plants, animals, fungi, but especially people. There is no way to think about conserving the forest if we don’t put people at the center of this discussion. #EarthDay

Today, @conservationorg joined the new Blue Nature Alliance. This is one of the largest conservation efforts to protect the ocean, working with partners to protect 18 million square kilometers of ocean in the next 5 years. So far work is underway in Fiji, Antarctica’s Southern Ocean, and Tristan da Cunha, with many more projects coming soon. With an ambitious goal to conserve the future health of our blue planet, this new partnership supports the growing call-to-action made by 75 governments to protect at least 30% of the global ocean by 2030. Blue Nature Alliance will: - create a global network of partners dedicated to building on lessons learned - use innovative new approaches to conserving large ocean areas - incorporate the traditional knowledge and interests of local communities and governments This exciting, new collaboration is led by Conservation International, @PewEnvironment , the Global Environment Facility, @MinderooFoundation , and the Rob and Melani Walton Foundation. The Blue Nature Alliance is built on partnerships. Together we are creating a global network of partners dedicated to building on lessons learned and innovating new approaches to conserving large ocean areas; and incorporating the traditional knowledge and interests of local communities and governments into their long-term management plans – a practice that helps ensure resilience of our ocean, for nature and people.
