Encompassing national parks, indigenous territories, productive fisheries, World Heritage sites, migratory corridors, carbon sinks, sustainable development reserves, and more, our priority regions here are not only vital to Latin America's biodiversity but to its people and economies as well.

Speak up for a global ivory ban

All ivory markets are a threat to elephants. Shutting them down is essential if we are to stop the killing.

The upcoming CITES Conference of the Parties is a big opportunity. It's a treaty meeting of 182 governments to decide regulations around wildlife trade.

Tell the U.S. Delegation to CITES to be a strong voice in support of a global ivory ban.
