How We Work

Our world is at a critical juncture: we will soon be 9 billion people sharing one planet. Growing demand for food, water and energy – and a changing climate – are rapidly depleting the natural systems on which we all depend. We must create a future where people and nature thrive together. The Nature Conservancy has the science, on-the-ground experience, business savvy, global network and vision to help create that future.

See how that is playing out in Kentucky. 

We face challenges. Kentucky’s forests, prairies, rivers, wetlands and working farms face threats that compromise their ability to provide clean water and air, healthy soils, wildlife habitat, nutritious local food and open spaces required for nature and people to thrive.

We see opportunities. We are working with our trustees, members, supporters, partners and fellow Kentuckians to conserve critical lands and waters that are essential to our health, our economic prosperity and the quality of life for our families and communities.

We have a vision. The Nature Conservancy envisions a future for Kentucky where we all enjoy clean air and water, productive working lands and accessible forests, rivers and parks, and where we all recognize and support the value of nature in our lives.
