Job Title: Field Manager-Restoration 

Who We Are: 

This is an exciting time at The Nature Conservancy (TNC) as we are shifting our strategy for greater impact in the world, seeking to address some of the most complex challenges facing people and nature — issues such as climate change, conserving lands, waters, and oceans at unprecedented scale, providing food and water sustainably and helping make cities more resilient and sustainable.  

Our Mission 

TNC’s mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Rather than viewing development – including economic growth – and conservation as contradictory goals, TNC works to demonstrate how nature has  value for people and development and how nature can provide enormous economic benefit. TNC envisions a future  where people and nature can flourish together. 

Our Vision 

A world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfil  our needs and enrich our lives.  

The Conservancy Team 

We achieve this through the dedicated efforts of our 3,800 diverse staff, including more than 600 scientists, all of  whom support conservation in 76 countries and all 50 United States. We are striving to develop a workforce as  diverse as the places where we work, and we have a deep commitment to diversity. 

Organizational History 

TNC is the largest conservation organisation in the world, working in all 50 states in the United States and more than  76 countries. It was incorporated as a non-profit organization in the District of Columbia on October 22, 1951. TNC  is science-based and in every place, we work, we partner with governments, businesses, and local communities. TNC  is advancing its mission by protecting and restoring rivers, landscapes and oceans for people and their development  at an unprecedented scale; it is transforming the way humanity uses the Earth’s natural resources to sustain  ourselves.
