I've had great experiences with this organization. They have a very innovative approach to conservation, which melds finance and market-based approaches with a deep understanding of ecology and ecosystem dynamics. Definitely worth consulting with any conservation issues.

totally change how conservation is done, and find solutions that meld conservation with development challenges.

I collaborate with ACS on a number of projects trying to link biodiversity conservation and economic incentives. I think that ACS has a raft of innovative ideas which could lead to real change in how we approach the protection of nature. The real challenge for the organization will be building these ideas into workable funded projects.
