Wild spaces and the species that rely on them are disappearing at a staggering rate. The world needs more wilderness, for species, for wildness and all the precious values they hold.
At Wildlands League, we work tirelessly to help protect North America’s Boreal ecosystem, a climate regulator and carbon storehouse.
North America’s Boreal ecosystem is one of the largest terrestrial carbon banks in the world. It is also the continent’s main nesting area for nearly 200 migratory birds. Up to three billion migratory birds breed here every year.
North America’s Boreal ecosystem supports hundreds of plant, mammal and fish species, most in decline elsewhere. For some, it’s their last refuge. It stores more fresh water in its lakes and wetlands than any other terrestrial system on Earth. How we manage this continental treasure will have planetary implications.
There is a lot of pressure to get shovels in the ground as soon as possible to build new mines, roads and dams. There’s great potential for devastating damage from a stampede to develop it. But acting in haste would be a mistake.
Help us SAVE THE CONTINENT’S NURSERY - the carbon-rich Boreal ecosystem.
