Our mission is to protect and restore the diversity of life and lands in the Sky Island region of the U.S. and Mexico. We use science, education, and advocacy to connect the binational landscapes, people, and wildlife of the Sky Islands for the benefit of all. We envision the Sky Islands as a place where nature thrives, where open space and clean water are available to all species, and where people are deeply connected to the region and its innate capacity to enrich our lives.
Our Commitment to Diversity
Connecting this biological and social diversity is central to Sky Island’s work in the region. Sky Island Alliance is committed to fostering a culture that embraces diversity and representation in all the work that we do. Our programs, employment, volunteer opportunities, and participation in all of our activities are open to all. We value diversity in terms of experience, skills, abilities, and vocation, age, ethnic background and race, gender expression and sexual orientation, and in all other ways that having diverse voices enables us to better represent and serve our communities.
