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

Founded in 1951 in the United States of America, The Nature Conservancy works in more than 70 countries across six continents with a science-led approach to create nature-based solutions for the environmental challenges facing our planet. The representative office of The Nature Conservancy in Mongolia has been operating since 2008 in the conservation field.

Grounded in Science and Collaborative from the Beginning

The Nature Conservancy began when leading scientists, committed citizens and dedicated leaders came together with a shared vision to protect and care for nature. Our work in Mongolia began 16 years ago. We are proud of our history, which serves as a foundation for the goals and partnerships that drive our work today.
