Conservation Stewards Program at Conservation International
Margarita Mora runs the Conservation Stewards Program at Conservation International. The Conservation Stewards Program pioneered the conservation agreements model to achieve lasting conservation, delivering concrete benefits to communities who agree to protect their natural resources. From working with communities in northwest Ecuador to now supporting conservation agreement initiatives in 19 countries around the globe, Margarita has dedicated the last 15 years to figuring out how to make conservation a viable alternative for communities. Margarita is a Conservation Fellow at the Mulago Foundation and a Heinrich Böll Stiftung alumna.
