Conservation: Challenges and Solutions Presentation

Nancy LeCuyer Beach, of The Nature Conservancy (TNC), represents the Virginia Chapter in the Hampton Roads region. She spoke at the July 23 Williamsburg Rotary Club Dinner meeting, sharing some highlights of the organization and its focus here in Virginia. TNC is the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. Working in more than 35 countries and all 50 states, TNC has built a tremendous record of success since their founding in 1951. The themes of TNC's conservation work centers around climate change, cities, fresh water, oceans, and conservation lands; and their technique is to dive deeper through science, to pursue non-confrontational, pragmatic solutions to conservation challenges, to partner with communities, businesses, governments, multilateral institutions, and other non-profits. Nancy is shown in the photo with Rotary club president Chuck Hobson, who presented her with a certificate stating the donation in her honor of a children's book to the Williamsburg Regional Library.
