Spring into action! Support conservation with NatureServe today and help protect our planet's precious biodiversity.

Happy 50 years of protecting the plants, animals, and ecosystems that create wonder and sustainability in our natural world! For half a century, NatureServe has partnered with incredible supporters like you to prevent extinctions and secure a healthy future through innovative biodiversity conservation practices. We are launching 50 days of action for biodiversity conservation in celebration of NatureServe's 50th anniversary. Join us now through June 30 to galvanize support for threatened plants, animals, and ecosystems that, without our protection, could disappear forever and threaten the rich biodiversity on our planet.

Ways to Take Action

Join the Nest

For the past 50 years, NatureServe has been at the forefront of the fight to protect biodiversity, which sustains us all. Knowledge is power, and with the right information, we can make decisions that will profoundly impact our planet's future. Start a monthly gift and join The Nest, a community of dedicated supporters building a nest egg for biodiversity's future.

Adopt a Species

Blue-spotted salamanders are undeniably fascinating creatures with blueish spots covering their entire bodies from head to toe. Is it surprising that NatureServe sought inspiration from blue-spotted salamanders when designing our logo? Be part of the legacy by adopting the blue-spotted salamander to support the next 50 years of biodiversity conservation across North America.
