What happened to Conservation magazine?

We ceased publication of Conservation magazine with the Fall 2014 issue. Anthropocene is the evolution of Conservation. For the past 15 years, Conservation has built a national reputation for editorial and design excellence, producing stories around solutions rather than problems. Anthropocene will continue that tradition and expand upon it. We’ll bring you stories about the people and projects leading the way to a decarbonized economy, climate resilient cities sustainable food production for a world of 9 billion, cohabitation with wild species, and more.

Can I still read Conservation magazine articles?

Yes, our entire 15-year story archive is still available online. We do not offer back issues for sale at this time.

What’s happening with my quarterly print magazine subscription to Conservation?

We are transitioning from a traditional subscription system to a membership model (think NPR). Like our peers in non-profit journalism, we’re asking readers to support in-depth, independent coverage of today’s critical issues. If you value solutions-oriented reporting on the environment, we hope you’ll join us. In return, you’ll receive a variety of exclusive insider benefits, including coffee table-worthy print editions.

If your Conservation subscription was active when we delivered the Fall 2014 issue, you’re automatically a member of Anthropocene. If you have questions about your status, please contact us.

Will there be a print version of Anthropocene? How can I get it?

Yes, we plan to produce 2 per year. The only way to receive the print editions is to become a member.

Can I buy an individual copy of the print version?

No. The only way to receive the print version is to join.

Do you ship print issues worldwide?


How do I pitch a story to Anthropocene?
