The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people.
The Nature Conservancy has worked in Georgia for more than four decades, infusing science into efforts to safeguard our rivers, forests and coast, ensuring that clean air, abundant water and resources to drive our economy and maintain our way of life endure.
It's thanks to the support of people like you, along with who we are and how we work, that has made the Conservancy so successful — and makes us optimistic that we can meet the challenges ahead.
