Celebrating Conservation Stories:
Inspiration for the Soul
There’s no more powerful way to describe the dedication and innovation that goes into our work than to tell stories. Stories about people, cultural and natural heritage, wildlife, climate resilience and the land that sustains them all.
Women Who are Making Conservation History
March is Women’s History Month—a time to celebrate the tremendous accomplishments of women across the country, including those who dedicate their careers to protecting our natural world. One example is Peg Kohring, one of our most innovative and respected colleagues. Peg’s 44 years in conservation have left a legacy for people and wildlife across the Midwest.
Big News! IKEA Acquires a Forest
from The Conservation Fund
Have you heard the news? Ingka Group, the largest IKEA retailer, recently purchased from us a 10,840-acre forest in southeast Georgia. This effort conserves the land’s wildlife and diverse ecosystems from development and is a great example of how our Working Forest Fund protects at-risk forests in an environmentally and economically sustainable way. This story is so huge, it’s been shared in CNN, Reuters, People Magazine, HuffPost and more.
