Protecting Nature. Preserving Life.

At The Nature Conservancy, protecting nature isn’t about putting up fences around pristine places to keep people out. We’re about protecting the places and resources we depend on for the benefit of all species—plants, animals and people. 

That’s why you’ll find us collaborating with fishermen in Maine to make fisheries more sustainable—and save fishing jobs. 

Or partnering with indigenous communities in Australia to protect important natural areas—and ensuring that these communities continue as caretakers of the lands.

Or helping farmers use less water to irrigate their crops—saving them on energy costs and keeping more water available for natural processes that result in healthy landscapes and cleaner drinking water.
