The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is the leading conservation organization working to make a positive impact in more than 70 countries around the world and all 50 States of the United States of America. Founded in 1951, the mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. One of our core values is our commitment to diversity and we are committed to a globally diverse and culturally competent workforce. Visit www.nature.org/aboutus to learn more.
We aim to meet increasing demands for energy resources, water supply and food production with low environmental impact, and in a mindset where nature is seen as a critical input to these key human needs. We do this by engaging governments, the private sector and local communities to ensure that conservation is a critical outcome in economic development. As the crucial link to all life, water supplies are stretched between what communities need – agriculture, energy, human health – and what nature can afford to give.
