Protect the World’s Land, Oceans, and Wildlife Fund

About

Humanity is putting immense pressure on the Earth’s resources, taking far more than the planet can in fact sustain. WWF’s Living Planet Report 2016 estimates that we are exceeding the Earth’s capacity by more than 60% – living as if we had 1.6 planets to support us. The CO2 produced by our reliance on fossil fuels is changing the climate, and changing the chemistry of the oceans, making them more acidic. Our demand for food and fiber is driving destruction of forests and marine ecosystems worldwide. We are squeezing out many of the other species with whom we share this planet – scientists report that we are entering the “Sixth Extinction” – meaning three-quarters of all species could disappear in the coming centuries.

The Nature Conservancy

The mission of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is to conserve the lands 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. How do we achieve this? Through the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff and over 400 scientists, we impact conservation in 76 countries and territories: 37 by direct conservation impact and 39 through partners. With the help of many partners, from individuals and governments to nonprofits and corporations, to Indigenous Peoples and local communities around the world, we use a collaborative approach and pursue our ambitious 2030 Goals. That's how TNC has forged new paths for conservation since our founding in 1951.
