How We Work

Conservation by Design

The Nature Conservancy’s mission is to protect the diversity of life on Earth and science guides our work. Today, with more than 50 years of land protection experience in Florida under our belt, we understand that setting ecologically valuable land aside is not enough to ensure its long term conservation. Modern threats like invasive species, atmospheric deposition, and global warming are challenging us to practice conservation in new and varied ways. What’s more, our evolving, science-based approach tells us that our land, air, fresh water, marine environments are connected and part of one system. This is why our conservation strategy today extends to all the major ecosystems in Florida. We call it landscape-scale conservation.
