CONSERVING BIODIVERSITY

by ensuring the persistence of imperiled species and their habitats with an emphasis on private land

The Turner Endangered Species Fund and Biodiversity Divisions are dedicated to conserving biological diversity by ensuring the persistence of imperiled species and their habitats with an emphasis on private land.

We aim to use the best science to effectively conserve biodiversity and establish a new level of effectiveness for private-public efforts to redress the extinction crisis.

Much of the wonder of nature can be saved for future generations if conservation activities are more frequently and successfully applied on private working landscapes like those owned by Ted Turner.
