The Nature Conservancy is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) conservation organization organization working around the world to protect water and land. Their mission statement is to "conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends." Helped by their hundreds of staff scientists, they pursue non-confrontational answers to the conservation challenges of the world. They "partner with indigenous communities, businesses, governments, multilateral institutions and other non-profits" to reach organizational goals.[1]


Nature Conservancy was founded in 1951 and has over 1 million members. Since being founded, it claims to have "protected more than 119 million acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide — and we operate more than 100 marine conservation projects globally."[1]


The Nature Conservancy is governed by their global officers and members of the board of directors and is managed from its office in Arlington, Virginia. The board chairman is Craig O. McCaw and the president and CEO is Mark R. Tercek.[2]
