The Nature Conservancy
Founded in 1951, The Nature Conservancy does exactly what their name says: they conserve lands, waters, and natural habitats in the U.S. and around the world with the goal of leaving behind a sustainable world for future generations.
Exactly how is this done? By collaborating with local governments, businesses, and citizens to purchase, protect, and maximize sustainable use of these areas for the communities who depend on them. The Nature Conservancy is not only the largest environmental nonprofit by assets and revenue, but is also one of the most trusted organizations in the world.
With a diverse staff including more than 550 scientists located in all 50 states and 33 countries, The Nature Conservancy works to ensure that nature can continue to provide the food, clean water, air, energy and other resources we depend upon for survival.
