The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy protects many vital orchid habitats. This nonprofit group began in 1951, and now works in all 50 US states and more than 35 countries. With over one million members, it’s one of the largest environmental groups in the world. By purchasing threatened lands, restoring native habitats, and fighting invasive species, the Nature Conservancy effectively protects biodiversity. Projects around the world, from China to the Yucatan, offer hope that some orchid habitats can resist growing human pressures. Important orchid ecosystems like Brazil’s Atlantic Rainforest are being restored by the group’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign. These massive tree plantings are also designed to combat climate change. By protecting lands and waters, the Nature Conservancy saves plants and animals in their wild habitats.

You can support the Nature Conservancy’s work by donating, becoming a member, joining on social media, or adopting an acre.
