About San Diego Habitat Conservancy

San Diego Habitat Conservancy (SDHC) has been working since 2000 to acquire, manage, and protect land that supports sensitive habitats and species. Our vision is a healthy, natural environment that engages the commitment of people and communities, creates a legacy, and improves the quality of life for all living things. SDHC is one of only a few nonprofit habitat managers working with developers, municipalities, and agencies throughout the region to strike a critical balance between development and the protection of our valuable habitat.

Our Mission

The mission of San Diego Habitat Conservancy is to acquire, manage and protect land in perpetuity that supports sensitive habitats and species, and to educate and inspire people and communities as stewards and advocates of their natural environment.
