The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to preserve the plants, animals
and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth
by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.

Our vision is to leave a sustainable world for future generations. 

Today’s society faces unprecedented challenges. Dwindling natural resources, declining economies, a rapidly changing climate and other threats require that all of us begin working together to reach common solutions. 

More than ever before, we must find innovative ways to ensure that nature can continue to provide the food, clean water, energy and other services our growing population depends upon for survival. 

Now
is a time of opportunity. A time to move conservation from the
sidelines of global priorities to the center of the world stage—because
human wellbeing depends on a healthy, diverse environment.
