Sustaining the world’s land resources is where The Nature Conservancy’s story began. It is our legacy and our future. Today, we are guided by our vision to conserve land at an unprecedented scale — for the benefit of people, wildlife, and our climate.
Our mission — to transform how land is developed, used and conserved — has never been more urgent. As the global population increases, a doubling of demand for food, fiber and fuel will weigh upon our forests, our grasslands, our wetlands — on all our natural resources.
Under these circumstances, doing less is not an option. At the Conservancy, we are doing more to protect critically important habitats, to transform how we use working lands, and to inspire better land-use practices in the geographies that are facing the most pressure for development.
Land conservation is at the heart of our agenda. Learn about how we’re working to transform land use and developing new solutions.
