The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to preserve the plants, animals, and natural communities representing the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.
Established by scientists in 1951, The Nature Conservancy is today the world's leading private, international conservation group with chapters in all 50 states and 34 countries.
In Illinois, The Conservancy began in 1957 with a group of committed citizens who campaigned to save the first 47.5 acres of Ingleside's Volo Bog, today a registered National Natural Landmark, a dedicated nature preserve and Illinois' only remaining open-water quaking bog. Since then, The Nature Conservancy has protected over 80,000 acres of critical habitat throughout the state's seven major ecoregions - distinct divisions in the natural landscape defined by climate, geography and species.
