OSI's Transborder Land Protection Fund seeks to chart a new path for conservation. The Fund, which provides grants for land conservation transactions, has been shaped by an emerging body of science that suggests the need for larger and more connected protected areas, and for coordinated action between conservation organizations in Canada and the US.
The Fund builds on the Open Space Institute’s conservation work in the US, where we have helped finance the protection of more than a million acres of forestland, and are currently actively protecting wildlife and supporting community forests. With grants from the Partridge Foundation, we are pleased to help support efforts that integrate conservation initiatives in both countries. To achieve this goal, we are guided by a group of Canadian and American advisors who have brought to the Fund wisdom, passion and an ability to think beyond traditional boundaries.
