We are passionate about nature and cherish the diversity of life from the sea bottoms to the mountain peaks.

We respect and trust each other, and we embrace the diversity of our cultures, talents, and experiences.

We make every decision with integrity and are accountable for the choices we make.

We are optimistic that life on Earth can be preserved and that with our partners we will witness unprecedented successes in conservation.

We have the courage to take bold action in the face of naysayers and critics, persevere through challenging times, and pursue our vision tirelessly and with enthusiasm.
