Your Support Inspires Change So People and Nature Thrive
Rare is a global leader in catalyzing behavior change and sourcing human-centered solutions to achieve enduring conservation results. For over 40 years, we have used insights from behavioral science to motivate people and communities to adopt new behaviors and practices that balance use and preservation.
Informed by our deep experience from over 450 community-led projects in 56 countries, we find what works locally and bring it to scale globally—providing a blueprint for building a conservation ethic around the world. The results? Empowered communities with the knowledge, tools, and rights to manage their resources sustainably—and create a brighter future for themselves, their families, their communities and the planet.
This work cannot wait. The world’s most disadvantaged communities depend on forests, wetlands and coral reefs for jobs, food, and livelihoods—and conservation can only succeed when people and nature thrive.
Help us change the relationship between people and the planet.
Together, we can turn local change into global impact.
The Campaign for Change
Rare 2021: The Campaign for Change is an ambitious global initiative to dramatically impact our planet. We aim to improve the lives of millions of people in developing nations by transforming coastal fisheries, restoring watersheds, and establishing more sustainable farming.
Nature will thrive. Our programs in coastal waters, watersheds, and agriculture will protect critical natural resources, biodiversity and coral reefs, ensure a primary source of clean fresh water, reduce pollution, and fight worldwide climate change.
People will thrive. Our programs are designed with people, for people. Our proven conservation solutions will boost livelihoods, improve food and water security, empower communities to take responsibility for their natural resources, improve cooperation with local and national governments, and build more climate-resilient communities.
Rare’s unique and replicable behavior change approach turns local change into global impact. By 2021, Rare will dramatically scale our community-led, climate-smart solutions to global environmental challenges.
