ConserveOnline is a "one-stop" online, public library, created and
maintained by The Nature Conservancy in partnership with other conservation
organizations. The library makes conservation tools, techniques, and
experience available to a broad community of conservation practitioners.
This site is intended to foster learning and collaboration, and provide
information and support to anyone making conservation-related decisions,
from the staff of conservation organizations to land managers at government
agencies to local land trusts to private landowners. We welcome anyone with
documents, data, maps, or images relevant to the science and practice of
conservation to make these resources publicly available through
ConserveOnline, and to share their expertise through the discussion groups.
