What We Do

Our Priorities

Working Toward A Future Where People and Nature Thrive

We unite partners in governments, industries, non-profits and communities to define new pathways towards a sustainable future. We invest in people to drive change at the scale and pace we need to address the greatest challenges we face. And what we do is informed by the best global science and supported by the leadership of the world’s largest conservation organization.

    Investing in People

    We bring together communities, industries and governments to set a new course for sustainable resource use that supports nature, bolsters economies, and respects culture and values. Explore

Conservation is no longer just about acres protected; it must also involve working with local people to build sustainable economies—that’s what Nature United has been doing successfully in Canada for 10 years.
