The Thomas Foundation assisted The Nature Conservancy (TNC) – a global conservation organisation – to establish in Australia, and has since worked with it.
TNC's science-based methodology, testing its ideas, approaches and assumptions prior to full-scale commitment to them, means all projects it supports are informed by the best available data.
We admire this strategy, recognising the strength that TNC brings to projects through this rigorous approach over its 60 years of operations.
We accept that our resources are puny in the face of the mammoth conservation challenges Australia faces. To compensate, we work strategically to identify niche needs or projects likely to bring lasting environmental change, seeking expert advice on the most effective change-projects in prospect.
We see ourselves as ‘activist innovators’.
