With 40 percent of the world’s species and some of the planet’s last  great natural places—from Patagonia and the Amazon to the Maya Forest and Mesoamerican reefs—Latin America is a beacon of hope  for a planet facing a changing climate and growing demands for food, water and energy.

During the past four decades, The Nature Conservancy has worked  across the region to protect lands and waters through science, policy and partnership. Our efforts span 15 countries and engage stakeholders across sectors: local communities, governments, companies, financial institutions and academia.

Guided by science, we create innovative, on-the-ground solutions to our world’s toughest challenges so that nature and people can thrive together.

With your help, TNC is now advancing our global Shared Conservation Agenda to drive transformational changes that tackle the key drivers of habitat loss and harness the power of nature to build a sustainable, resilient and prosperous future.

This report captures our ambitious goals and promising results so far. We invite you to learn more—and to help us to do more. Our planet, our region, and our families deserve nothing less.
