The Nature Conservancy

"Saving the last great places on Earth", part of the Conservancy's mission, is no idle boast. In 1961 the Conservancy received its first conservation easement, on six acres at Gallup Salt Marsh in Connecticut. Since then the use of conservation easements has successfully protected millions of acres of wildlife habitat and open space. In addition to Chapters in all 50 states, Canada and Mexico, the Conservancy is also active outside North America. From the seascapes and rainforests in the Caribbean, the great Maya Forest-home of the endangered jaguar - in Central America, the world's largest wetland, the Pantanal and the magical Galapagos Islands in South America, to Indonesia's coral reefs and the jagged peaks of China, the Conservancy helps to preserve these treasures and thereby also the plants, animals and natural communities that call these habitats home. These are just a few of the Conservancy's projects, there is much more to discover at:
