The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. They address the most pressing conservation threats at the largest scale. Thanks to the support of more than 1 million members, we’ve built a tremendous record of success since our founding in 1951: • They've protected more than 119 million acres of land and 5,000 miles of rivers worldwide — and they operate more than 100 marine conservation projects globally. • They work in all 50 states and more than 30 countries — protecting habitats from grasslands to coral reefs, from Australia to Alaska to Zambia.  • They address threats to conservation involving climate change, fresh water, oceans, and conservation lands. Learn how we're responding.  Why They're Successful: • Everything they do is rooted in good science — aided by their hundreds of staff scientists. • They pursue non-confrontational, pragmatic solutions to conservation challenges. • They partner with indigenous communities, businesses, governments, multilateral institutions, and other non-profits.  • They have the support of more than 1 million members who enable them to continue working on a scale that matters and implement solutions that endure.
