Over the past 60 years, The Nature Conservancy has grown to become the world’s largest and most respected international conservation organization. Our growth is due in large part to our solid, science-based approach that enables us to identify the planet's most important natural places. But, it is also due to our unique ability to work with all stakeholders to achieve lasting conservation results, and to raise awareness about preserving and restoring the natural world.

- Grown to be the world’s largest conservation organization with net assets of $4.3 billion.
- Earned high ratings from leading charity watchdog organizations, including the American Institute of Philanthropy, Charity Navigator and the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance.
- Protected more than 117 million acres of land and 5,000 miles of river around the world.
