Description

The Nature Conservancy in Illinois collaborated with the Chicago Wilderness alliance to develop the Climate Action Plan for Nature, which was recently announced. Bob Moseley, the Conservancy's Director of Conservation in Illinois, led the development of this unique plan that recommends strategies to preserve the existing 370, 000 acres of natural areas in the Chicago Wilderness region. The Nature Conservancy uses biological indicators to set conservation priorities.
She focuses on the Conservancy's recent conservation planning in North Idaho and how it identified key conservation areas and attributes. The Wilderness Land Trust and The Nature Conservancy have announced the acquisition of two properties in Owyhee County both in newly designated wilderness located adjacent to the Owyhee Backcountry Byway.
Both property acquisitions will offer scenic desert canyons to public access and recreation


Company description
The work of the Conservancy in Illinois is made possible in part by the generous support of corporations and foundations. 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 Natural Resources Conservation Service wants to increase the amount of acres enrolled in the Wetlands Reserve Program. The Conservancy and Conservation International broker the largest ever debt-for-nature swap under the Tropical Forest Conservation Act.
