The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.
How do we achieve this mission?
Through the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff, including more than 550 scientists, located in all 50 U.S. states and 33 countries.
With the help of our many partners, from individuals and governments to local nonprofits and corporations.
By using a non-confrontational, collaborative approach and staying true to our five unique core values.
That’s how The Nature Conservancy has done more than anyone else to advance conservation around the world since our founding in 1951.
Our vision is to leave a sustainable world for future generations.
Today’s society faces unprecedented challenges. Dwindling natural resources, declining economies, a rapidly changing climate and other threats require that all of us begin working together to reach common solutions.
More than ever before, we must find innovative ways to ensure that nature can continue to provide the food, clean water, energy and other services our growing population depends upon for survival.
Now is a time of opportunity. A time to move conservation from the sidelines of global priorities to the center of the world stage—because human wellbeing depends on a healthy, diverse environment.
