Since 1988, we have been working in China to protect the lands and waters on which all life depends. The Conservancy seeks to find solutions that allow China to develop and protect the full spectrum of its biodiversity, from pandas to people. By joining us, you can help safeguard China’s natural benefits—its forests, its wildlife, its water—and make a profound and positive contribution to the health of the whole world. The Nature Conservancy is enhancing the quality of life in China by using science supported by international and local expertise to ensure that China can solve its most pressing environmental challenges—like the threats linked with rapid urbanization and climate change. The Conservancy is committed to protecting critical ecosystems through unique approaches like land trusts. We are also restoring great rivers and working with freshwater policy. China is currently the world’s foremost producer of greenhouse gases, which means there’s tremendous potential for curbing both the causes and effects of climate change. This is why we are developing nature-based solutions to combat the effects of climate change, and supporting sustainable practices for people and nature.
