A three-year campaign by the Nature Conservancy has raised $33.3 million for conservation work in Washington state and around the globe.
The Forces of Nature campaign is one of the largest conservation fund raisers in state history, according to the Nature Conservancy announcement of the campaign results.
The conservancy raised $18 million for purchase of fish and wildlife habitat, $10 million for habitat restoration and $6 million for international conservation programs.
Forty-five donors gave gifts of $100,000 or more. The campaign was also supported by corporations and private foundations, including Boeing, Harriet Bullit's Icicle Fund and the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
