The climate crisis is growing more dire every day. Intense storms, frequent forest fires, and rising sea levels pose a growing threat to humanity and wildlife globally.
Contributing to this crisis is the destruction of ecosystems that keep climate change in check. Deforestation, land use, and pollution are devastating natural environments that keep carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and provide habitats for wildlife.
The time to act is now.
Protecting nature isn't just the right thing to do—it's what we have to do to fully address climate change.
Nature has a way of keeping climate change in check by absorbing carbon.
By saving nature, in particular protecting intact forests and restoring coastal ecosystems, we can achieve
1/3 of the action needed to keep global temperature rise
to 1.5°C by 2030
What can we do?
The U.S. and other countries need to step up to ensure the future of our planet for generations to come. We need to protect and restore natural environments that keep carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, keep wildlife thriving, and safeguard human health.
