Climate Change Action
“‘Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.”
I feel that Global climate change is one of the signature issues of the 21st Century. With growing concerns about environmental awareness, it is more important than ever for conservation organizations to help communities reconsider their role in environmental problems and conservation action and see themselves as part of the solution. Without action on Climate Change, any other conservation action that we do will be severely compromised. Through my years of work in conservation base organizations I’ve been lucky to have the opportunity to help communities learn about the actions they can take to make a difference in their future. Our willingness to come together as a national and global community and take strong action in the face of the challenge of climate change will determine what kind of world our children will inherit from us.
