The Nature Conservancy has been working across state and international boundaries throughout the Great Lakes since 1990 to identify, prioritize, and integrate implementation of the most critical conservation strategies for ensuring long-term viability of the Great Lakes Basin.  The Nature Conservancy initiated the Great Lakes Project in 2007 to align our internal resources to greatly increase the scope and impact of our work in the Great Lakes region. The Great Lakes Project integrates TNC’s capacity from its eight state programs in the Great Lakes Basin.  Our objective is to help ensure that the Great Lakes ecosystem is among the most effectively managed ecosystems on Earth.
