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.
