Welcome to Cool Green Science — the conservation blog of The Nature Conservancy!

You’ll find four things on this blog:

  1. Nature Conservancy scientists and experts talking about conservation issues of moment — everything from migratory birds to coral reefs to rainforests to the intersection between humans and nature — in our uniquely rigorous, science-based way.
  2. Links to interesting online news and features about the Conservancy’s work and opportunities to help support and engage more deeply with that work.
  3. Links to conservation news around the world.
  4. Your comments on the issues raised by our posts — constituting what we hope is a vigorous debate about the state of conservation and the future of our planet.
