Welcome to the new CEPF website

New learning section, updated grants and hotspots content among features

Frankly, it has been a long time since CEPF last launched a website. So we’re especially excited to share this new site.


In addition to an updated visual design featuring more photography, cepf.net now offers new and refreshed content and a responsive design that accommodates viewing on a variety of devices.


Examples of new and improved content include:


  • Our new “Learning” section, where we share case studies, reports and other materials from grantees that offer ideas and lessons for anyone interested in biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. The section is organized into themes, such as “Species,” “Conservation Outside Protected Areas” and “Livelihoods.”

  • An updated project database that allows users to search for CEPF-funded projects by biodiversity hotspot, country, taxon, grantee name and a list of keywords. Each project has its own web page with a description and associated reports and other documents.

  • The biodiversity hotspots content has been redesigned and refreshed, and now includes interactive maps. In hotspots where CEPF currently invests, you can find detailed maps that show the priority sites for CEPF’s funding.

  • A new "Grants" section featuring reorganized and simplified information on how to apply for CEPF funding and how to manage CEPF grants.

  • Our refreshed blog page, or Stories page, where you filter for stories in six categories: biodiversity, grantee stories, impact, lessons learned, tips and tools, and news.


We hope you enjoy the new website, and find it an interesting and useful source of conservation information.
