Program areas at Nature Conservancy

General Update on Program service accomplishments from The Nature Conservancy Chief Executive Officer, Sally Jewell: Innovating for Nature-Most days in the California deserts boast clear, wide-open skies. These arid lands-rich in both biodiversity and the cultural history of many Native American peoples-are also ripe for solar development. As Secretary of the Interior, this is where I first saw The Nature Conservancy's innovation at work, when the Bureau of Land Management turned to TNC for help designing a blueprint for renewable energy development across 22.5 million acres of the iconic Mojave and Sonoran deserts of Southern California. When done right, clean energy development is a crucial strategy in the fight against climate change, but it must be sited in places where impacts to people and nature are minimal. Fortunately, science tells us there is more than enough already altered land (former mines, brownfields, degraded agricultural lands, and rooftops) to meet the ...

Saving New South Wales Last Wild Wetlands-In one of the biggest private conservation purchases in Australian history, The Nature Conservancy bought the Great Cumbung swamp for roughly $39 million. The area contains some of the last large wetlands in the Murray-Darling Basin, the country's agricultural heartland, where most of the land and water resources are used for crops and livestock. A critical lifeline for water birds like straw-necked ibis and yellow- billed spoonbill, the area is also rich in indigenous culture. Empowering Indigenous Women to Protect the Amazon-Since 2003, TNC has partnered with eight indigenous groups to manage 12 million acres of the Brazilian Amazon. The work has a special focus on supporting indigenous women as forest stewards. The Conservancy has helped women of the Xikrin Indigenous People produce babacu oil, a healthy, traditional food similar to coconut oil that can be sustainably harvested and boost the local economy. Reducing ...

PROTECTING LANDS, OCEANS & WATER: From the grasslands of Mongolia to the Caribbean's reefs, we help save the world's most critical habitats. Milestones in Mongolia: The Conservancy's support sharpens a nation's ambitious conservation goals-for more than 10 years, The Nature Conservancy has given scientific support to the national government of Mongolia, which has now put a staggering 20% of its land- some 77.5 million acres-under national protection. The latest move came in May 2019, when the nation's parliament put new protections on 8.6 million acres. The new protections cover a huge swath of Mongolia's landscape, from the Altai Mountains to the steppe to the Gobi Desert. They help preserve habitats for at least 15 rare species, including snow leopard, argali sheep, wild ass, and Przewalski's horse, as well as cultural and historical sites. Together, Mongolia's protected areas will help the country counterbalance growing national changes in mining, overgrazing and climate ...
