Conservation requires action on the ground and in the water across Wisconsin to protect and restore our native landscapes and freshwater habitats for people and nature. But we cannot accomplish our work without supportive public policy and funding.
The Nature Conservancy works closely with Wisconsin's state and federal legislators to develop and support legislative policies that make a substantial and lasting contribution to effective conservation of globally significant lands and waters. We also work with partners and state and federal agencies in a variety of ways to create, secure and maintain funding for conservation.
