The protection of ecologically valuable and wildlife-rich areas is a global concern. Adequate land must be set aside to maintain large ecosystems and the species that depend on them. But today’s unprecedented threats from logging, mining and commercial development require new and creative tools, including buffer areas around wilderness, connective corridors between protected areas and more thoughtful land use.
- In the United States, we are working to permanently protect the nation’s last, best wild places for future generations.
- In Australia, we are working to protect the rugged beauty of the Outback and the many rare and indigenous creatures living there.
- In Canada, we are working to make much of the billion-acre boreal forest the largest conservation area in the world.
