The Nature Conservancy (TNC) was founded in the U.S. through grassroots action in 1951. It has grown to become one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world. TNC impact conservation in 75 countries and territories: 37 by direct conservation impact and 38 through partners. The Nature Conservancy tackles the dual threats of accelerated climate change and unprecedented biodiversity loss. Science determines where they focus and equity guides how they achieve lasting results. Grounded by decades of local on-the-ground experience, they maximize their ability to affect change by bringing together real-world solutions, policy expertise, sustainable financing and collaborative partnerships.
Science, the foundation of TNC's work, is solving conservation’s biggest challenges. They also use a practical, nonpartisan approach to show policymakers across the political spectrum how nature can provide effective solutions to major challenges like climate change. They apply their science & expertise to help businesses make better decisions and believe lasting conservation must actively involve the people linked to the natural systems they seek to protect.
