This organisation may not be a traditional think tank. We have included it in this list as we deem it to be a 'boundary' organisation – in other words, it might have some qualities or characterstics of a think tank.

The challenges confronting the global environment and the needs of the world's human populations have never been greater; the future, quite literally, is in the balance. Every person on Earth deserves a healthy environment and the fundamental benefits that nature provides. But our planet is experiencing an unprecedented drawdown of these resources, and it is only by protecting nature and its gifts of a stable climate, fresh water, healthy oceans and reliable food that they can ensure a better life for everyone, everywhere. Conservation International imagines a healthy, prosperous world in which societies are forever committed to caring for and valuing nature, for the long-term benefit of people and all life on Earth. Armed with a new mission and strategy and inspired by the values that guide it, Conservation International aims to influence the course of global development, demonstrating to governments, institutions and corporations alike that a path that values nature is essential for human well-being and the wellbeing of all life on Earth.
