A Little About Us

Evolving since 1951, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is a global conservation organization dedicated to conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends. Guided by science, we create innovative, on-the-ground solutions to our world's toughest challenges so that people and nature can thrive together. Working in over 80 countries and territories, and across all 50 states, we are tackling climate change, conserving lands, and protecting waters and oceans at an unprecedented scale. Our vision is a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people are moved to care for nature--both for its own sake and for the ways it enriches our everyday lives.

While our vision is global, our commitment is local; we build solutions together with communities, governments and businesses on the issues unfolding right in their backyards. At the heart of this work are relationships, and they are guided by respect for all people, honor for communities and culture, and an unwavering commitment to diversity.
