You have given us a voice, and we're using it.
At a time of uncertainty when passions are running high, we believe that nature unites us—and so, we are speaking up:
POLICY: From Olympia to D.C., we’re vigorously promoting common-sense policies while defending proven conservation and science investments. Decades of bipartisan collaboration with government at all levels have positioned us as a trusted voice at this critical time. Our efforts are strengthened by members of our board of trustees, as well as influential business and community leaders, who are leveraging their relationships and reputations in support of our shared vision.
SCIENCE: Science is woven throughout the Conservancy’s work, informing all that we do. In Washington, our scientists are partnering with leading institutions and companies to pursue game-changing innovations. The resulting research, tools and technology will answer key questions and advance solutions to our biggest conservation challenges locally and globally. We will always advocate for the necessity of science to inform, improve and enhance our world.
PARTNERSHIP: We can’t achieve our ambitious vision alone. We believe that the complex problems we seek to solve require everyone’s input and participation. As we expand our circle, we are including and amplifying voices that have often been left out of the conversation. We strive to listen, learn, and then act on what we’ve heard from local communities across Washington and beyond. For us, this includes meeting them where they are, and using our skills and resources to support their leadership and help meet their needs.
Together, we have an influential voice. You have helped establish The Nature Conservancy as an effective conservation advocate that’s prepared to speak up and lead, here in Washington and beyond. Given the urgency of the challenges we face, I couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you.
Mike Stevens, Washington State Director
