Description

The Conservancy protects specific places where plant and animal species can survive for generations to come. Science guides our work by identifying Earth’s most important natural places. Using innovative tools, we work to protect and restore these priority sites. We call these areas the Last Great Places. We manage preserves throughout the state.
At each place, we employ a range of strategies tailored to local circumstances. We buy land. We help other landowners manage their properties. We facilitate public-private partnerships.
We engage the business community. We collaborate with like-minded partners. We seek pragmatic solutions.


Company description
The Conservancy always seeks to develop creative partnerships with corporations that result in tangible, lasting conservation. We address the most urgent conservation challenges at the largest scale. Today, more of our natural world is at risk than ever before. So our work is crucial to keep vital habitats and unique species from being lost forever. The Nature Conservancy, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and other partners announce that the ivory-billed woodpecker, thought to have gone extinct in 1946, had been rediscovered in the Big Woods of Arkansas. The Conservancy and Conservation International broker the largest ever debt-for-nature swap under the Tropical Forest Conservation Act.
In the United States, we work with federal government agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), the National Park Service (NPS) and the Department of Defense (DOD); as well as agencies at the state and local level. The Conservancy works with other like-minded organizations, ranging from large non-profit conservation groups like Conservation International and NatureServe, to local land trusts.
Although our primary conservation method since The Nature Conservancy began working outside the U.S. has been allocating and designing funding sources for conservation, more and more we are understanding that successful conservation strategies must include partnerships with governments, lending institutions, and other non-governmental organizations at all levels local, national and international. The Nature Conservancy works with the business community to find common ground between conservation and industry. We accept their financial and land donations, engage in cause-related marketing, foster direct conservation action, and participate in event sponsorship.
