Support the Planet: Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy is a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive.

Founded at its grassroots in the United States in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has grown to become one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world. Thanks to more than a million members and the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff and more than 400 scientists, we impact conservation in 79 countries and territories across six continents.

OUR CHALLENGE Only by working together can we give people hope, keep our wildlife wild and keep our home whole. And ensure the future of a world that sustains us all.

Follow the Science

Science matters, especially at this critical turning point for nature. Our work is grounded in science. We’re supporting innovation, leadership, and communication for conservation success.

Grounded in Science and Collaborative from the Beginning

The Nature Conservancy began when leading scientists, committed citizens and dedicated leaders came together with a shared vision to protect and care for nature. From our first land purchase to our latest water fund, we are constantly evolving to bring innovative solutions to the challenges facing our world.

Boat drone orthomosaic image of the mapping of Catalina Island, DR (right near Catalinita, all in the Southeast Marine Sanctuary in DR we help protect). Boat drone imagery is one of the 4 layers of data assessment being used for the Caribbean coral mapping project (satellite imagery and aerial hyperspectral sensor imagery are used for mapping and boat drone imagery, and people diving below water are used to corroborate this mapping. the boat and aerial drone data gathering – is completed by TNC. We use it for things unrelated to the CAO work but it will also be combined with the CAO data that is gathered to create the region-wide map of coral reefs across the Caribbean. The goal is that after the Caribbean region is completed, this initiative can be used as a model to help marine regions across the globe map their coral reef ecosystems to better protect and restore them.  In terms of the ‘bigness’ of the work, Steve Schill (TNC) says we are really the only organization he knows of that is combining these technologies (boat and aerial drone, hyperspectral imaging from CAO plane, Planet satellite) to create coastal habitat maps

Using Tech to Map Coral Even Better

We used high-tech planes and satellites to create the highest-ever resolution maps of the Caribbean’s coral reefs in order to ensure the protection of these important ecosystems. Explore More
