Defend Paradise

Join the Movement to Protect the Caribbean

When we dream of "paradise," we imagine the Caribbean.  Breathtaking beaches and reefs outdo each other. If we’re lucky enough to visit, we will remember forever the feel of the soft sand between our toes and the warmth of turquoise water.

Even if we never visit or our last vacation recedes into memory, the Caribbean sticks with us. Just a screensaver or the wallpaper photo on our mobile device can remind us for a moment how precious each day is; that if we look at it right, paradise can be all around us.

In a world that only gets busier, this feeling of contentment is ever more essential.

The 1 million members and staff at The Nature Conservancy Defend Paradise because of this unique power to focus us on the half-full glass. Every day our more than 550 scientists are working in all 50 U.S. states and more than 35 countries to design innovative ways to sustainably use, manage and protect paradise—whether that’s a stunning natural landscape like the Caribbean, or the equally priceless ballgame in the park, riverside bike ride, or sunset hike.

Let’s work together to Defend Paradise - those places and moments - for ourselves and for future generations.

Join Us

Our Defend Paradise campaign is a unique opportunity for paradise-seekers/lovers everywhere to have fun and protect the Caribbean. It's a chance for brands and consumers to enjoy products and purchases that look and feel good while benefitting nature in this beautiful place.

We believe, like you do, that small actions can add up to a big impact for nature.
