Social Media Community Guidelines
When interacting with other nature lovers, remember to treat each other with kindness and respect at all times.
The Nature Conservancy welcomes you to engage on our social media accounts in healthy and productive discourse about protecting nature—for everyone.
This page provides a better understanding of how to engage with TNC on social media and what you can expect from us. In short, our values guide everything we do here, and this extends to our social media communities. We ask that users treat each other with courtesy and respect at all times.

We reserve the right to delete any comments or block users that fall outside of our values and guidelines outlined below:
Be Kind and Courteous
We're all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let's treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but be kind: do not personally attack your fellow commenter during a disagreement.
Refrain from Hate Speech and Bullying
Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying, cursing and harassment of any kind is not allowed, and degrading comments about race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated.
Stay on Topic
We welcome your feedback, provided your comments are relevant to the topic that TNC has shared.
No Promotions or Spam
Self-promotion, spam, posts for political gain and irrelevant links are not acceptable for TNC's social media channels.
Respect Everyone's Privacy
Being part of our social media community requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. Make sure you have permission from indentifiable persons' likenesses before posting.
Respect Intellectual Property
Before posting, make sure you have the right to post protected intellectual property, including copyrights, trademarks and service marks.
