Who we are

CLP is a partnership of three of the world’s leading biodiversity conservation organisations. Drawing upon the expertise of conservation professionals from across the globe, we direct project funding and training to early career leaders from developing countries who are tackling priority conservation challenges. For 30 years we have been providing important career stepping stones to over 2,500 individuals who now form an extensive global network of conservation practitioners.

What we do

CLP supports high-priority biodiversity conservation by building the leadership skills of early career conservationists who are striving to overcome major threats to nature in places where capacity and access to resources is limited. To achieve this, we identify and engage exceptional young conservationists, invest in their professional development through grants, training and mentoring, and help them to multiply their impact across the conservation sector.
