Description

The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. We address the most pressing conservation threats at the largest scale. Thanks to the support of our more than 1 million members, we’ve built a tremendous record of success since our founding in 1951. The Nature Conservancy pursues non-confrontational, pragmatic, market-based solutions to conservation challenges. This makes it essential for us to work collaboratively with partners communities, businesses, government agencies, multilateral institutions, individuals and other non-profit organizations.


Company description
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. 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.
