We chose the Nature Conservancy for our first highlighted charity because they are one of the largest organizations that protect and cultivate our planet today. Their mission resonated with us because they touch every aspect of nature. They cherish our planet and take solid action to ensure that people and nature thrive together.
The Nature Conservancy has protected more than 119 million acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide. They impact conservation in 72 countries and in all fifty states, preserving habitats from grasslands to coral reefs. They truly do their best to find ways to strengthen Mother Nature and all of the life that depends on her.
How exactly do they do this? Each project is place specific and they use evidence-based science, compiled by hundreds of staff scientists with help from over 1 million of their members. They support natural solutions to climate change, create sustainable fisheries, invest in nature in urban areas and much more.
The Nature Conservancy is productive because they’re local enough to work with groups near you and global enough to connect it all together for massive movements in conservation. However, they can only continue their work with the help of generous donations. Please consider checking out their Legacy Club, which includes stories from real people who are currently translating their passion for nature into support for The Nature Conservancy.
