Today’s world faces formidable challenges: polluted air and water, rising sea levels and extreme weathers from climate change are threatening the natural balance between humans and our planet. When The Nature Conservancy (TNC) was founded in 1951, the world’s population was 2.6 billion; today, it has more than tripled, and will reach 9 billion by 2050. Our growing needs for food, water and energy are straining the natural systems we depend on.
Uniting our one million members, scientists, local communities, and governments and businesses from 72 countries around the world, we’re tackling the most urgent global environmental threats, implementing realistic solutions that protect nature and our way of life.
We have a framework for addressing these pressing challenges, but we can’t do it without you.
