Natural Heritage Institute

NHI is a non-governmental, non-profit organization founded in 1989 by a group of experienced conservation lawyers and scientists who foresaw the need for a toolkit for the next era of environmental problem-solving: where the technical challenges are more complex, the solutions more elusive, the economics more central, the ramifications more global, and the conventional pathways less efficacious.      NHI's core mission is to restore and protect the natural functions that support water-dependent ecosystems and the services they provide to sustain and enrich human life.
