Worldwide conservation organization protecting lands and waters.
The planet is at a crossroads. The actions we take together right now are important to protecting the natural world we rely on today—and for setting us on the path to a more hopeful, sustainable future. And... we relate more to stories than to just straight facts. Right? It's time to speak up for climate action through our personal stories. How have changes in the environment affected you, your family or your lifestyle? Sound off in the comments below or visit our 🔗 in bio to share.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #climatechange #protect #planet #yourstories #nature 📸: @fernando.v.fotografia

A setting sun gently lights the Green River of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. Based at The Nature Conservancy's Dugout Ranch, the Canyonlands Research Center is a ground-breaking collaborative between TNC, universities and public agencies to make key advances in climate science and sustainable land use. Launched 10 years ago, the CRC is now a significant climate change research center, not only for local researchers and land managers but for scientists from across the United States and around the world. In the CRC’s vast outdoor laboratory, researchers interact daily with working cowboys and public land managers. Meanwhile, groups of high school and college students learn about research and practices underway to preserve and restore this fragile semi-arid environment.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Heidi Redd (a cowgirl), Nichole Barger (a professor), and María Cristina Rengifo-Faiffer (a young scientist) are three individuals who are fighting to save these canyonlands with the power of grit, hope, and community. Help us celebrate them as #WomenInScience via our link in bio! ⁠ ⁠ #women #science #nature #canyonlands #research 📸: Mary Hulett ⁠

A brown bear and her cub walk stride for stride along a tidal mudflat in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.⁠ 🐻⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Everything that makes Earth inhabitable—all depends on the interplay of millions of organisms in diverse ecosystems, which have learned to thrive and interact over billions of years. This variety of life, the communities they form, and habitats in which they live make up the fabric of life—biodiversity. While the brown bear population may currently be stable, there are several species in danger due to human activities and the planet’s runaway transformation that is happening on our watch. The way forward is in our hands- if we work with nature instead of against it. More on how to protect the best and manage the rest via the 🔗in bio.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #biodiversity #brownbear #nature #resilient 📸: @wolferphoto

Around the world, 3 billion people rely on seafood as a primary protein source. For TNC, providing food sustainably is a global priority. As demand for nutritious seafood continues to climb, we believe that aquaculture can help meet that demand while having a positive impact on the environment. Our colleagues in @con@conserve_ma are collaborating with @islandcreekoysters @noaafisheries, @numarsci, and @northeasterncos to better understand how shellfish aquaculture can benefit both people and nature around the globe. For more on how we're diving deep on (and to watch the full video) visit our 🔗 in our bio and follow @conserve_ma for more local impacts!
