The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working
around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for
nature and people.
The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.
We're proud of what we've accomplished since our founding in 1951: The
Nature Conservancy has protected more than 117 million acres of land and
5,000 miles of rivers worldwide — and we operate more than 100 marine
conservation projects globally.
We have more than 1 million
members and work in all 50 United States and more than 30 countries
around the world — protecting habitats from grasslands to coral reefs,
from Australia to Alaska to Zambia.
We address threats to
conservation involving climate change, fire, fresh water, forests,
invasive species, and marine ecosystems.
