Founded in 1951, the Nature Conservancy works in all 50 states and more than 35 countries to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. With the support of more than one million members, the organization addresses the most pressing conservation threats at the largest scale.

The Nature Conservancy has protected more than 119 million acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide, and also operates more than 100 marine conservation projects. Its 600 staff scientists and spatial analysts work to address threats to conservation involving climate change, fresh water, oceans and conservation lands. The organization also builds coalitions with indigenous communities, governments, businesses and nonprofits—especially to increase financing for conservation. Its Conservation by Design strategic framework marries a collaborative, science-based approach with key analytical methods and is used in all of the conservancy’s projects across the globe.

Our work with the Nature Conservancy ranges from supporting community fisheries in New England to establishing a scalable integrated supply chain for responsible beef in the southeastern Amazon.
