Conservation Strategy Fund CSF Charity Profile

Conservation Strategy Fund uses economics and strategic thinking to help conserve natural ecosystems around the globe. Our approach involves helping local conservationists use analytical tools to find smart, efficient solutions to the most urgent environmental problems. We train environmental professionals from the tropics in a focused package of practical skills, and also work with groups directly in the field. Since its creation in 1998, CSF has concentrated on forests and rivers in the tropics, where extraordinarily high levels of biological diversity are found. To maximize the reach and quality of our work, we have involved leading experts and conservation organizations in all of our projects. CSF is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization.

Conservation Strategy Fund CSF Volunteer Information

Paracas National Reserve in Peru is home to several species of sea lions, otters, vast anchovetta schools, blue-footed boobies, Inca terns, pink flamingos, pelicans, dolphins and large stocks of scallops. The large reserve has been bolstered in recent years by a volunteer park ranger program, which brings in students to maintain the protected area, clean the beaches and provide outreach to nearby communities. Despite its many contributions, funding for this program is constantly in doubt. Course graduate Cecilia Rivas, of the Peruvian Grupo de Estudios Ambientales (GEA), used skills she learned from CSF to perform a cost-benefit analysis and quantitatively show that the $8000 annual investment in the volunteers produces more than $32,000 in benefits. The benefits are a combination of services to the protected area and education for the volunteers.
