Vision and Mission

The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.

Our vision is a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill our needs and enrich our lives.

How do we achieve this mission and vision? 

  • Through the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff, including more than 600 scientists, located in all 50 U.S. states and more than 35 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.

A New Hope for a New Wild

Despite what you may hear, nature is not down for the count. We are optimistic about the future -- are you?
