SAVING THE PLANET

Its dedication to saving the planet began in 1951 when the Nature Conservancy was founded. We, too, support every effort to help protect the lands and waters on which all life depends.

It concerns us all and it is up to us to save the environment and leave a sustainable world for future generations…before it’s too late. But time is already starting to run out!

Saving the planet means protecting its land and seas

Conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends is essential in order to leave a sustainable world for future generations

Some of the most serious issues relating to nature conservation that confront society today include the depletion of natural resources, climate change, providing enough food and clean water, and acquiring energy without a

negative impact on the planet.

Here are a few facts about what this organization is doing to protect the environment including some of the conservation projects it has spearheaded.

MANPOWER


Through the dedicated efforts of its staff which includes over 550 scientists in every state of the USA as well as 33 other countries, this non-profit organization has been able to protect more than 119 million acres of land and 5,000 river miles. It also operates more than 100 marine conservation projects globally. An impressive achievement!

INTEGRITY

The Nature Conservancy takes accountability very seriously and its effectiveness and efficiency have been highly rated by charity watchdog organizations such as Charity Navigator and The American Institute of Philanthropy.


PARTNERSHIPS ARE SAVING THE PLANET

It takes selfless dedication to protect the land

Selfish greed is a destructive force

The massive task of saving the planet is not something the Conservancy can do alone, especially when the goal is to achieve positive and lasting results. So it works with numerous environmental partners and these encompass:

Governmental Agencies, at federal level, such as the National Park Service and the U.S. Agency for International Development, as well as agencies at the state and local level.

Companies, to raise awareness of conservation issues and change business practices, and currently collaborates with Dow Chemical Company, Coca Cola and Kraft Foods.

Non-Profit Organizations, one example being a partnership with the World Wildlife Fund and Stanford University to make conservation economically attractive as well as universal rather than unusual.

Local Stakeholders, who are private landowners or ranchers, farmers and fishermen, to promote good ecological management and, at the same time, support their livelihoods.

Indigenous and Traditional Communities, to gain their trust and cooperation in order to ensure they have a sustainable existence in the areas they inhabit, which happen to be some of the world’s most biologically critical and threatened ecosystems.

Multilateral-Bilateral Institutions, to develop and implement initiatives, such as, Indonesia Illegal Logging Project, to address the issues of both supply in that country and demand in other major Asian markets.

We would like to suggest that you visit http://woods.stanford.edu/about/overview to find out about research work conducted at The Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and more specifically the Natural Capital Project, a 10-year partnership started in 2006 with The Nature Conservancy and World Wildlife Fund.

The Project develops programs to manage and protect living, renewable sources of human well-being that flow from ecological systems. It envisions a future where conservation is commonplace and economically attractive throughout the world.

At the Institute, researchers and students collaborate to produce innovative environmental solutions to protect and nurture the planet today and tomorrow.
