Take Action to Fight Climate Change | The Nature Conservancy
There are many ways you can take action now to fight climate change.
Sometimes, when a problem is global in scale, it’s hard to believe that the actions of one person can make a difference. But even small acts of empowerment can have big results. And since so many things affect our climate, you might be surprised at all the ways you can make a difference!
Here are some things you can do right now:
When you offset your carbon footprint you help to slow climate change and to save and restore critical wildlife habitat. Measure your carbon footprint right now.
When you donate to The Nature Conservancy, you’re supporting our work to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends — and which makes up more than 30% of the solution to climate change! You can have a major impact on climate change simply by donating.
Sign our Climate Pledge and encourage world leaders to make good on the promises made at the 2015 Paris Climate Convention.
