The Common Sense Environmental Fund
Our mission is to bring about a world where wildlife is abundant and extinctions are rare, a world where people esteem wildlife and recognize the importance of biological diversity to their own well-being.
CSEF works worldwide to save threatened species from extinction, protect habitat and open space, and improve ecological health through collaborative projects with scientists, researchers and educators. We focus on human-modified landscapes and seascapes where biodiversity is at risk due to habitat loss, disrupted ecosystems, and other environmental changes.
We invest in the world's best conservationists, educators, engineers, researchers and scientists, the professionals in the best position to preserve wildlife. The Common Sense Environmental Fund's ability to be effective is directly related to our independence and programmatic focus on our partners. We empower the most valuable conservation projects by leveraging our financial resources where they have the most impact.
