The Nature Conservancy is a global environmental non-profit non-government organisation working to create a world where people and nature can thrive.
Founded at its grassroots in the United States in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has grown to become one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organisations in the world. Thanks to more than a million members and the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff and more than 400 scientists, we impact conservation in 76 countries across six continents.
Our ambitious mission
Our mission is to conserve the land and waters on which all life depends. Our vision is a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill our needs and enrich our lives.
Places We Protect
Where we work
Collaborative, science-based and innovative — The Nature Conservancy is taking on our planet’s biggest, most important challenges and it's no different in Australia.
Stand with us

Seven decades of conservation experience have taught us that we can accomplish more for the natural world when we bring together people and organisations across borders, across sectors and across political aisles. We all have a stake in a better future.
