The Nature Conservancy's mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.  A leading conservation organization, we work in all 50 United States and in more than 30 countries. We help solve critical global challenges by significantly improving the health of natural systems. 
We live in an age of unprecedented threats to our natural world.  As the planet's population grows, heading toward at least 9 billion people by 2050, corresponding demands for food, water and energy have accelerated the impact on Earth's natural systems.  The resulting effects of climate change are broad, pervasive and unpredictable.
The Nature Conserancy is facing this reality by focusing on four global challenges:  1) conserving critical lands; 2) restoring our oceans; 3) securing fresh water; and 4) reducing the impacts of climate change.  To address these challenges, we pursue four broad priorities or solutions: 1) protecting and restoring natural systems; 2) using nature sustainably; 3) broadening the constituency for conservation; and 4) strengthening our organizational effectiveness. 
The Connecticut Chapter contributes to this mission by conserving significant natural places and systems within Connecticut, across the region and around the world.
