Grants to this Grantee
for the Building a Conservation Ethic in the West Program  
This renewal grant will support the Nature Conservancy’s work to increase public funding for private land conservation in the West. Increased development pressures put ecologically sensitive ranches and other private land at risk, requiring that additional resources be available to protect the most ecologically important, vulnerable properties. This and a separate grant on this docket, to the Trust for Public Land, are complimentary.
for general operating support  
This grant to the California office of the Nature Conservancy will support its efforts to protect the land and waters of the state, transform the way conservation is achieved, and inspire Californians to take action on behalf of their natural world. The conservancy will work with private land owners, water rights holders, and policymakers to achieve its goals.
for conservation of Thaidene Nene  
With support from the Hewlett Foundation and many other donors, the Nature Conservancy is partnering with the Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation to protect the 7 million acres of the Thaidene Nene property in northern Canada. The Thaidene Nene region spans from the Boreal Forest to tundra, and is part of the largest roadless landscape in North America. Permanent protection will prevent mining and other commercial development and protect the ecosystem, which is home to grizzly bears, wolves, and some of the last free-ranging herds of barren-ground caribou. This grant will provide support to the Nature Conservancy and its partners in negotiating the boundaries of the proposed area and establish a trust for the permanent protection of Thaidene Nene.
