The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy is a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive.

Founded at its grassroots in the United States in 1951, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has grown to become one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world. Through fellowships that connect academic excellence and conservation practice, TNC and IoES work together to better understand the impacts of Earth’s changing climate and blue carbon systems. Through the Prtizker Emerging Environmental Genius Award, TNC works with IoES to elevate a rising class of environmental leaders.
