The Nature Conservancy Celebrates Conservation Successes in 2012

In 2012, the Conservancy continued to put donors' contributions to work through conservation efforts across the globe

Arlington, VA | December 21, 2012

This holiday season, when you make a donation to The Nature Conservancy, you are making an investment in the future of our natural world. In 2012, the Conservancy continued to put donors' contributions to work through conservation efforts across the globe.

From Australia to Chile to Mongolia— in 2012, The Nature Conservancy worked around the world to protect nature and preserve life on Earth. The Conservancy’s Montana Chapter and Canada program worked in partnership with the Nature Conservancy of Canada to halt the threat of mining in the pristine lands that border the North Fork of the Flathead River. The partnership enabled 389,000 protected acres to the magnificent Crown of the Continent. The Conservancy also orchestrated a complicated land transaction in Florida, raised $2 million toward the purchase and bought federal and state partners together to acquire 1,278 acres critical to the future of the endangered Florida panther.

“I am very proud of what we accomplished together in 2012,” said Mark Tercek, President and CEO of The Nature Conservancy. “We ensured the long-term protection of some of the world’s most valuable lands and waters. We influenced important conservation policies, legislation and government investments that will strengthen the natural systems that underpin our prosperity and well-being. And we broadened support for conservation, developing new partnerships with the science community, business sector and general public around the world.”

(See what else has been keeping the Conservancy busy in 2012.)

For over 60 years, The Nature Conservancy has prided itself on maintaining high standards of efficiency and integrity. Together with its members and donors, the Conservancy has protected 119 million acres of land and 5,000 miles of river, and operates more than 100 marine conservation projects globally. The potential for conservation grows with every contribution.

The Nature Conservancy's audited financial reports and IRS 990 forms are posted online and the Conservancy consistently receives high charity ratings. You can feel confident that your investment with The Nature Conservancy will make a world of difference.
