Soil, a living ecosystem of air, water, minerals and organic matter is the dynamic skin that naturally blankets the Earth. So common, soil hardly registers a second thought, yet within soil lies a key to life. Scientists agree that soil is a conservation powerhouse: it stores carbon, filters water and provides habitat and food for wildlife and people. Protecting and improving soils globally is a conservation priority for sustaining life on Earth.
At The Nature Conservancy, unlocking soils’ conservation potential is a priority.
