The Nature Conservancy
Protecting Ocean, Land, and Water
Per The Nature Conservancy, our best hope for a healthy and resilient planet is to protect lands,
freshwater, and ocean by 2030.
TNC believes change is possible. Momentum is building on this important environmental issue, and we are
making tangible and significant progress to address plastic pollution.
With your support, TNC will continue to transform California into a leader on effective and impactful
plastic waste reduction to address this global crisis. Working together, we can
ensure that future generations do not inherit an ocean choked with plastic.
Join us in tackling this challenge. Our oceans are worth it.
