How We Work
There's a lot of ground to cover in Texas, and plenty of water to boot. In order to achieve lasting conservation success across this great big state, we employ a number of tools and strategies. By no means does this list reflect the full extent of our work, but it'll get you up to speed on the basics of how we go about doing what we go about doing.
Water is essential for human life, but it is a fixed asset we must learn to share. The Conservancy is developing practical solutions for nature and people around the world.
Far from barren, Texas deserts support thousands of unique plant species and hundreds of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles; but external pressures imperil this often-overlooked ecosystem.
The Blackland Prairie once spanned two states and more than 12 million acres. Find out up on what we’re doing to protect that important ecosystem, and other Texas grasslands.
With more than 3,000 miles of bays, estuaries and coastline, the Gulf of Mexico is one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world. Check out the projects we’ve created to keep it healthy.
While the East Texas Piney Woods are the most recognizable, Texas forests are as diverse as the species that inhabit them.
