About Us

The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) is a partnership initiative that includes four conservation organisations – BirdLife International, Conservation International, Fauna & Flora International, the Wildlife Conservation Society - and BP plc. The mission of the Conservation Leadership Programme is to promote the development of future conservation leaders and provide them with the capacity to address the most significant conservation issues of our time.

To achieve this mission, the CLP has the following key objectives:

  • Identify, train and mentor future conservation leaders who demonstrate a commitment to conservation and sustainable development
  • Support practical conservation projects that address priority issues, deliver and communicate conservation results and build local capacity
  • Facilitate a global conservation network to support continued professional development, promote collaboration and ensure long-term sustainability

Where We Work

The CLP offers support to young conservationists living and working in Africa, Asia, East/Southeastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and the Pacific Islands. Countries designated by the World Bank as ‘high-income economies’ and countries with US Sanctions are not eligible for CLP support. Exceptions to these criteria include some high-income economies located in tropical areas of high biological diversity, including the Pacific and Caribbean Islands. If you have any questions about eligibility, please contact the CLP.
