Conservation, Research and Education Opportunities International (CREOi) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that funds research and outreach efforts that promote wildlife, habitat and natural resource conservation. Since 2015, we have focused our resources on conservation issues in Washington State, USA. From 2005 to 2015, we supported projects around the world, with an emphasis in South America. For summaries of current and previous awards, please see Projects.

CREOi is based in Seattle, WA. We have been in operation since 2005, evolving from an earlier project to support wildlife research and conservation on the Juan Fernandez Islands in Chile. We are staffed by one part-time position, and our grants, gifts and operations are guided by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Proposals for new or continuing projects are by invitation only. For more information, see our Awards page. Continuations are not guaranteed, and CREOi typically will not fund a project or grantee more than three times.
