The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. 

Our goal is to ensure that Alaska’s wild salmon populations remain at their historic highs and that salmon remain an ecological, economic, and cultural force across their full range in Alaska  Our priority salmon landscapes include Bristol Bay in Southwest Alaska, where we focus on protecting habitat and researching salmon, the Matanuska-Susitna Basin in Southcentral Alaska, where we restore salmon passage and value ecosystem services, and the Tongass in Southeast Alaska, where we work to restore salmon streams and forests.
