At our core, Island Conservation is dedicated to making our world a better place tomorrow than it is today. We are committed to protecting and improving the future of island plants and animals, the people and communities in which we work, and our staff.

The death of George Floyd, and the deaths of the countless African American men and women before him, have surfaced painful and necessary truths surrounding race and racism in the United States. These current events have brought inequality once again to the forefront of our collective consciousness. For far too long, systemic racism and injustice have been overlooked and unchecked. We must listen, learn, and stand up for what we believe in.

Island Conservation is committed to examining the ways in which our organization can help dismantle racism and inequality, which are deeply embedded in our global, national, and regional systems. We are reflecting on our own organizational strengths and weaknesses in addressing racial and other forms of inequity and are committed to creating a safe and inclusive workplace.

Historically the field of conservation has shown a distinct lack of racial diversity, and while progress has been made, it is simply not enough. Looking to the future, we strive to do more to uplift underrepresented individuals and vulnerable communities, and to support and amplify the needs of those who are marginalized. This work starts within every one of us, as we evaluate our contributions to these unjust systems and the opportunities we have to change them.

We hope you will join us as we stand in solidarity with the global movement focused on promoting equality and justice.
