2023 Conservation Wranglers - It Takes a Village to Save Nature

Nonprofit Texan by Nature (TxN) has selected participants in the 2023 TxN Conservation Wranglers, an accelerator program that catalyzes science-based, Texan-led conservation projects occurring in the state that demonstrate a positive return on conservation for people, prosperity and natural resources. The Wranglers will receive 12 to 18 months of support in program management, strategic planning, marketing strategy, metrics capture and analysis, including the production of United Nations Sustainable Development Report Cards, professional content creation and partnership development.

This year’s Wranglers are American Bird Conservancy - Stopping Plastics and Litter Along Shorelines; Caddo Lake Institute; Ducks Unlimited - Chenier Plain Restoration; Hill Country Alliance - Hill Country Night Sky Program; and Texas Wildlife Association.

Texan by Nature, founded by former First Lady Laura Bush, unites conservation and business leaders that believe the prosperity of Texas is dependent on the conservation of its natural resources.
