Marked by tall, wind-swept alpine peaks, cool, sparkling rivers and rugged shoreline, the Appalachians stretch 1,500 miles from Canada to Alabama. Here a multitude of endangered plants and wildlife — creatures such as the Indiana bat, the bog turtle and rare salamanders — make their last stand against extinction. Black bears, bobcats and moose still roam these vast, unbroken swaths of forest.
Part of the Atlantic Flyway, the Appalachians host tens of thousands of migrating birds. Unique cave and karst systems support globally important species while also recharging major eastern rivers that supply drinking water to millions of people.
With a strong network of partners, The Nature Conservancy is working to conserve 1.7 million acres of public and private land. They are doing this in a variety of ways, such as:
- Acquiring land
- Restoring forested lands
- Establishing conservation easements
- Promoting sustainable forest management
- Combating invasive species
