Tiffany & Co. said its $6.5 million support to The Nature Conservancy (TNC), a global conservation organisation, from the historic auction of the first-ever Patek Philippe Ref. 5711 Nautilus watch featuring a Tiffany Blue® dial will accelerate conservation efforts in five key regions facing the dual crises of climate change and biodiversity loss.
Over the past 20 years, The Tiffany & Co. Foundation has supported the preservation of landscapes, seascapes and critical ecosystems which has included grantmaking to The Nature Conservancy. The Foundation has worked with TNC on the effects of mining on salmon fisheries and coral conservation efforts across six various projects since 2007.
Jennifer Morris, Chief Executive Officer, The Nature Conservancy, said, “The Nature Conservancy works around the world to address some of the biggest challenges facing the planet, our economies, and our communities. Food security, access to safe and clean water, air quality, and forests, oceans, rivers, and grasslands all depend on a healthy relationship with nature. Tiffany & Co. has mobilised funds that will support our efforts to scale solutions in some of the world’s most threatened and critical places.”
The areas that will be supported include: Papua New Guinea, Borneo, Indonesia, The Caribbean, Belize’s Maya Forest, and Alaska’s Tongass National Forest.
