On behalf of The Nature Conservancy, I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.
Many of you have reached out to us during the COVID-19 pandemic to share your support for our staff and our projects around the world—thank you.
These days of isolation and social distancing have surely drawn attention to the fundamental human need for connection—to each other and to nature. And throughout this challenging time, TNC’s work to protect the world’s lands and waters continues so the relationships between people, places, plants and animals can remain strong. This issue of Legacy focuses on our world’s astonishing diversity of life and the conservation practitioners who are dedicated to protecting it.
Another bright spot in this unprecedented health crisis is the arrival of TNC’s new chief executive officer, Jennifer Morris. Jennifer has devoted her career to nature and communities. As we face the challenges and opportunities of the future, her commitment to science, respect for diverse voices and partners, and ability to inspire creativity will propel our organization forward during these days of uncertainty.
Your trust in our leadership and appreciation for biodiversity motivate our staff to grow meaningful relationships—even if they have to be fostered in new ways—and to keep our hearts and minds open so we can emerge with innovative solutions to safeguard nature.
