Fire is an essential force that has shaped life around the globe, but in many ecosystems today, the role of fire is severely out of balance. The Nature Conservancy works to maintain fire’s role where it benefits people and nature, and keep fire out of places where it is destructive. These pages contain a variety of information and resources related to the conservation of terrestrial ecosystems, especially those that are significantly affected by fire activity.

Contact us at for information about many of the Conservancy’s fire-related programs.

ITEM: Large landscape managers in the United States and U.S. Territories, note the LANDFIRE section in Fire and Landscapes. For a preview and introduction regarding mapping and modeling resources, vegetation history, spatial data, current ecosystem conditions, scenario planning, and customizing products based on your individual landscapes, visit the LANDFIRE site on the Conservation Gateway.
