The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.
While the international organization has been active in Mississippi since the 1960’s, the Chapter office was founded in 1989. Today, the Chapter has thirty employees in six locations around the State: Jackson, Tupelo, Camp Shelby, Lucedale, Ocean Springs and at the Red Creek project site in northern Jackson County, Mississippi.
The Nature Conservancy is a non-profit organization which depends upon individual, corporate and foundation giving to support its work. A volunteer Board of Trustees sets policy and makes the major decisions affecting the Chapter; staff work full-time in implementing the day-to-day work of the Conservancy.
