Our Mission 

The Nature Conservancy’s mission is to protect the lands and waters on which all life depends. Every acre we protect, every river mile restored, every species brought back from the brink, begins with you. Your support will help make a lasting difference in New Jersey and around the world in 69 countries. 

In New Jersey, we work across our state to ensure clean and plentiful water, secure community safety in the face of floods, adapt to climate change, and protect natural resources while supporting economic growth and recreation opportunities. We're using science and decades of experience to focus on the highest priority solutions in places where we can have the greatest impact.
