Protecting Forests

To protect species and biodiversity, we must protect the world’s forests. Doing so will help stabilize our climate. We’re doing our part by engaging the American public and urging U.S. companies to choose sustainability. For instance, we’re urging Cargill and other U.S. agricultural companies operating in the tropics to adopt zero-deforestation plans, and we’re urging U.S. tissue companies to include recycled paper products in their paper towels, toilet paper and tissues.

Protect Bristol Bay

In the late spring and early summer of 2021, over 65 million salmon swam down streams in the Bristol Bay watershed to the bay. It’s one of the few healthy salmon runs left in the world. Brown bears emerged to glut themselves on the salmon in preparation for the following winter. Over 190 different species of birds fluttered and soared through the region. This idyllic scene repeats itself each year. The bay itself is home to Belugas, Pacific Right Whales and Pacific Walruses, and these millions of acres of fragile wetlands, tundra and forests are spared from dams and mines.

No Bees, No Food

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food.

New Life for the Ocean

More Nature

Every minute, America is losing two football fields worth of forest, meadow, grassland, desert, beachfront, riverside or wetland. Today, just 13 percent of oceans worldwide can be classified as "wilderness" relatively unaffected by human activity.

This continuous loss of nature diminishes not only the richness of our natural world, but also of our own lives and that of our children’s future.

Go Solar

Fortunately, more Americans are going solar every day. By 2017, our country had enough solar energy capacity installed to power the equivalent of more than 10 million homes.
