The Nature Conservancy

Conserving Nature? Or Promoting GMOs?


The Nature Conservancy (TNC) calls itself “the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people.” According to its website, TNC “addresses the most pressing conservation threats at the largest scale.” 

So you might be surprised to learn that TNC is funded by some of the world’s worst polluters and destroyers of the earth’s soil, air, water and food system—and that one of those companies is Monsanto.

TNC, which is ranked among the nation’s most trusted organizations, makes no attempt to hide its connections to companies like Monsanto, Alcoa, BP Oil, and Dow. It’s right there on the company website.

Here’s what TNC CEO Mark Tercek has to say about GMOs. (Warning: It’s pretty much the same thing Monsanto has to say about GMOs):

“Another agricultural technology we should consider carefully is genetic modification. The National Academy of Sciences has found no adverse health effects from GMOs, and also concluded that they can be environmentally beneficial in some ways.”
