By the Numbers:
We have protected nearly 8 million acres of land and water in all 50 states.

Every dollar invested in our Revolving Fund goes directly to protecting land, over and over. By recycling these dollars, we have saved lands valued at more than $6.3 billion. 
Protecting land and water with high conservation value is essential for America's environmental health and its economic vitality.  The Fund enables conservationists, government agencies, community leaders and land trusts to swiftly protect properties for wildlife, recreation and/or historic significance.  Often a landowner's timetable to sell does not align with available funding from private and public sources.  Our capital  supplies the timely bridge financing that is critical to help our partners save important properties. 

We offer rapid and nimble action, along with deep expertise in a wide array of complex transactions.  By continually re-investing our funds into new conservation projects once others are completed, we’ve helped permanently protect over 7.8 million acres in all 50 states.
