The Nature Conservancy in Hawaii

Corporate Council for the Environment

Hawai‘i’s environment is everyone’s business. That’s why The Nature Conservancy partners with private industry and institutions through our Corporate Council for the Environment, a program for organizations that invest in our future by investing in nature.

Hawai‘i’s leading companies and organizations understand that our environment and economy are intrinsically linked: forests gather and filter fresh water, coral reefs protect our coastline, and our native species are fundamental to a living Hawaiian culture.

But our natural resources face increasing threats. To meet these challenges, join forces with the world’s largest and most respected conservation organization: The Nature Conservancy.

Visionary leaders like you have made it possible for the Conservancy to:

  • Help protect 2.2 million acres of Hawai‘i’s forest, the source of our fresh water
  • Work with more than 30 local communities to protect coral reefs and fish
  • Establish a nearly fossil fuel-free research station at Palmyra Atoll to unlock the secrets of a healthy coral reef ecosystem

We invite you to join these leaders and help solve the environmental challenges facing us. Become a member of the Conservancy’s Corporate Council for the Environment. Together, we can create a future where the places we need and love are still here to nurture and sustain us.
