One of my good friends works for The Nature Conservancy. One of his responsibilities is locating coral reef donor sites and then setting up coral reef nurseries so that they can transplant the coral into new habitats such as BREEF’s Coral Reef Sculpture Garden. Organisation’s such as Stuart Cove’s offer a Coral Nursery & Restoration speciality, where you can learn more about corals and the growing of them for replantation. But what else does The Nature Conservancy do? Well it has the following mission:
The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.
How do we achieve this mission?
Through the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff, including more than 600 scientists, located in all 50 U.S. states and more than 35 countries.
With the help of our many partners, from individuals and governments to local nonprofits and corporations.
By using a non-confrontational, collaborative approach and staying true to our five unique core values.
That’s how The Nature Conservancy has done more than anyone else to advance conservation around the world since our founding in 1951.
It is definitely a great organisation and I have been invited to take a great part in it, more on that in a later post. However, if you are looking for a charity to donate to please consider them. They definitely do a lot for our environment.
