The Nature Conservancy is a nonprofit that operates in 34 countries and all 50 U.S. states. They will spend $60 million on river conservation globally for the next five years, said Shelly Lakly, the Nature Conservancy's managing director of Saving Rivers Strategy.
"This donation will make a significant impact on us and our mission," Lakly said. "We're at a critical point in the development of the world with population increases and the need for people to work together. It's truly a tipping point."
The four main areas of focus for Enterprise Rent-A-Car's donation include supporting efforts to reduce the amount of excess nutrient runoff that enters the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico. The donation will also help fund the restoration of watersheds and improve water quality on the Colorado River and in wetlands and major rivers in Canada and Europe.
