About Us

The Nature Conservancy’s mission is to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and water they need to survive.

We work in all 50 states of the U.S. and in 30 countries, protecting habitats from grasslands to coral reefs, from Australia to Arizona to Zambia. We partner with governments, universities, indigenous communities, business, and other non-profits engaged in protecting land and water for nature and people.

About the Center for Science & Public Policy

The Nature Conservancy's Center for Science and Public Policy was created to engage stakeholders and expertise in applied science and policy to develop new information, ideas, and tools that can help solve some of our most pressing challenges affecting people and nature.

in Arizona

Arizona faces critical challenges in preparing for a prosperous and sustainable future. Solving pressing challenges about water supplies, how we grow, where we build our transportation and energy infrastructure, how we sustain our environment and improve quality of life will require strong, creative leadership, institutional capacity and public support. It also will require new information and tools to help problem-solve and enable stakeholders and policy-makers to evaluate options and tradeoffs. In an increasingly specialized world, solving complex problems will require better integration of policy and science in conjunction with public and private sector engagement. The Conservancy's Center for Science and Public Policy in Arizona was created to foster this integration.

Our website hosts more than a decade of conservation science generated by Arizona Conservancy staff and collaborators. It will also take a closer look at issues such as growth, water, and the management of our changing forests, grasslands and deserts. We will highlight initiatives that bring together people, science, policy, and solutions. The Center draws upon staff from all programs within the Conservancy. Below are profiles of Arizona’s conservation science and policy staff.
