The Nature Conservancy is a charitable environmental organization, headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, United States. Founded in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has over one million members, 4000 employees, operates in over 70 countries globally and has protected more than 119,000,000 acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide. TNC operates in Europe since 2008 and has today offices in Berlin, Brussels and London with about 30 staff. Our strategies remain grounded in solid science, which shows that in order to bring society at large on a conservation pathway, we need to focus on protecting lands and waters on which all life depends; tackling climate change; providing food and water sustainably, building healthy cities, and connecting people and nature. These focal areas form the priorities of TNC’s shared conservation agenda.
