The Nature Conservancy is taking on the tough issues facing conservation today — from climate change to coral reefs, to energy development in a growing world. We are applying high level strategies to our conservation work around the world in the following areas:
The Conservancy works with government officials and partners to support public policies that protect our lands and waters so the next generations of Americans can build secure and rewarding lives.
Working for solutions that will reduce emissions to levels compatible with a healthy planet, preserve forests and help nature adapt to global warming.
The Nature Conservancy is working around the world in places like Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula to protect rainforests, engaging local and indigenous communities in creative solutions that balance the needs of people with nature.
Scientists estimate that unless we take immediate action, we could lose up to 70 percent of coral reefs by 2050.The Nature Conservancy is dedicated to protecting these vital ecosystems and all the corals, fish and people that depend on them.
Birds are a priceless part of our heritage. They are beautiful, they are economically important — and birds reflect the health of our environment. Preserving and protecting bird habitat has always been a core part of the Conservancy's mission.
Building on our tradition of protecting lands and waters, we are working to balance growing development needs with those of nature; build relationships with communities, companies and governments; and increase funding for large-scale conservation projects.
Protecting nature isn’t about putting up fences around pristine places to keep people out. We’re about protecting the places and resources we depend on for the benefit of all species — plants, animals and people.
