Alabama's Businesses Can Help Us Protect Alabama's Natural Areas

Through our ongoing conservation efforts and achievements, The Nature Conservancy has contributed to Alabama's abundance and prosperity for more than 20 years. We have expanded our science-based approach to conservation throughout the state, protecting the natural resources that support Alabama's economy and the wild places that make it an ideal place to live and do business.

The Nature Conservancy in Alabama's Corporate Council for the Environment allows Alabama businesses to help us maintain and restore our most enduring asset - our natural heritage. Our state Chapter has set aside over $3 worth of land for every $1 invested. The Conservancy has received gifts and grants of $37 million and has protected over 146,000 acres of land valued at $117 million at the time of acquisition.

Our work, however, is far from complete. The Conservancy's work in Alabama is especially urgent because the state is ranked fifth in biological diversity in the United States but is second most extinction-prone state, having already lost almost 100 species. Alabama ranks last among southeastern states for land area held in conservation (4% of 32,480,000 acres).

With your support and that of your business, we can create a future of abundance instead of loss, where places we need and places we love will still be here to nurture and sustain us.
