The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Its vision is a world where the diversity of life thrives and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill their needs and enrich their lives.
The Plant a Billion Trees campaign is working to promote large-scale restoration in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest and the Cerrado Forest—essential not only to the survival of a vast array of plant and animal species but also to the people of Brazil. This project provides carbon sequestration, storage and filtering of water, protection against floods, and economic opportunities to local communities.
