The Nature Conservancy has been advocating for and helping to implement successful land-use planning and approaches around the world for decades. From our first land preservation project at Mianus River Gorge to ground-breaking efforts in British Colombia’s Great Bear Rainforest and Kenya’s Northern Rangelands, we have continued to adapt our practices to stay ahead of growing conservation challenges. This includes building on traditional conservation efforts like establishing protected areas—to private stewardship by communities, individuals and companies—to working with indigenous and communal peoples to manage and protect their homelands.
This evolution has enabled us to help people around the world protect, care for and sustainably manage millions of acres of land and do what’s best for nature.
Finding balance between the needs of people and those of nature—providing the essentials both need to survive.
Working hand-in-hand with communities to help protect, manage and defend their homelands.
Working with industry, governments and NGOs to realize the value of nature and invest in it for the long-term.
