They are the heart and soul of our nation, providing inspiration and wonder to generations of visitors. Yosemite, Bryce Canyon National Park, Yellowstone — and countless other precious places.
Federal public lands like these are the backbone of conservation. They are national treasures. And they need our unwavering protection.
But the threats of development, climate change and insufficient funding are just a few of the perils facing the lands we hold dear. Without strong citizen advocates, the future is uncertain for these special places.
The Nature Conservancy strongly supports the vital role that federal ownership and stewardship of federal lands plays in advancing conservation. They are integral to many of our science-based solutions that benefit the communities and plants and animals that depend on them.
At this time of year, as we think about what we cherish — I hope you will stand with us as we call on leaders at all levels of government to protect our magnificent public lands and all nature gives us. Sign our petition today!
America needs to honor our commitments to global climate action. Call for strong and continued U.S. leadership.
The lands that the endangered Florida panther calls home are at risk. Only 180 of these majestic cats are left, and every acre of habitat is critical. Call on Congress today to protect the natural resources the panther and other wildlife depends on.
It's simple: we can't protect our nation's air, water and natural places unless we protect conservation funding.
Invasive species run amok in our lakes, parks -- and even in our own backyards. They overrun native plants and damage the lands and waters that plants and animals need to survive.
Congress is close to taking a critical step to reduce U.S. energy use -- an essential strategy in the fight against climate change. But unless they hear from you now, this vital legislation will go unpassed, increasing threats to nature and communities.
There’s a leafy superhero in your backyard. How much do you know about the power of trees?
I will protect America's public lands
I agree that action to protect America's public lands is critical in the face of growing threats. Our cherished landscapes not only inspire us; they give us clean water and air, provide vital wildlife habitat, and generate millions of dollars in recreational activities. I'm adding my voice to The Nature Conservancy's call to leaders at all levels of government to preserve all that these natural treasures give us.
