If nature is anything, it is resilient. Through floods and droughts and pollution and destruction, given the opportunity and a little help, nature will fight its way back.
During the Conservancy’s 60 years, our staff, volunteers and supporters have helped save and restore hundreds of places — and the life that depends on those places — all around the world.
But work remains to be done, so we’re pursuing opportunities to bring back ecosystems, species and landscapes, and also to reconnect people to nature in new ways. Because not only is it important for people to help bring back natural places, it’s important for people to come back to nature.
