Climate change threatens California’s residents, economy and environment.

To ease the effects of global warming on citizens and habitat, we are working on policies that preserve wildlands against climate change.

Reducing climate change impacts in California

In California, The Wilderness Society is working on key objectives in its climate change work:

Promote the role of wildlands in the fight against climate change.

Forests can help store carbon dioxide and that’s why The Wilderness Society is working to promote the protection and restoration of forests as an important part of climate solutions.

Develop ways to manage wild lands that will respond to climate change with science and a collaborative solution.

Scientists, land owners, conservation groups like us and others will need to work with government to study and create new ways to manage wild lands as they face changes caused by global warming.
