The Nature Conservancy
Founded in 1951, The Nature Conservancy is an international conservation organisation committed to the protection of biodiversity. The Conservancy owns and manages more than 1,600 preserves in the US - the world's largest system of nature preserves. It has also helped protect millions of acres throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Pacific Islands.
Working with local conservation organisations, the Conservancy builds conservation capacity abroad, helping other nations safeguard their own natural heritage.
