Terry Sullivan is the State Director for The Nature Conservancy in New Mexico. He has degrees in geology, environmental science and law.

As the state director, Terry is responsible for building and supporting an extraordinary staff, cultivating relationships with supporters and setting the course of the chapter’s conservation agenda. New Mexico is focused on addressing climate change impacts, building healthy forests, providing water security and creating a healthy urban environment in Albuquerque where nature can thrive.

Terry has held several positions with TNC in New Mexico since joining the organization in 1992. They include Director of Land Protection, Director of Conservation Programs, and Assistant State Director. He became state director in 2005.

+ more - less

TNC is committed to creating, promoting, and perpetuating a narrative and future in which nature and people can thrive and coexist. Our mission must encompass inclusion, collaboration and support of the ancestral and current stewards of our natural systems.

We take this opportunity to acknowledge the ancestral homelands of the Indigenous peoples of the US Southwest that now comprise the 19 Pueblo communities, Fort Sill Apache, Jicarilla Apache, Mescalero Apache, Navajo Peoples in New Mexico and Ute Mountain Tribe in New Mexico.

We pay our respect to these traditional stewards, past, present and emerging, who have been the custodians of these lands and waters since time immemorial.

Thank you to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center for their support in developing TNC’s land acknowledgement in New Mexico.
