Science tells us that nature operates on a scale that isn’t defined by boundaries of ownership or politics. We hear terms like “landscape scale” and “large landscape” conservation. Bottom line: Nature’s scale is a grand scale.
If these cycles are interrupted, or the pathways between vital habitat are blocked, problems ripple through a vast geography.
Today, the natural rhythms and migrations that have lasted for millennia face multiple threats; from construction of roads, to development deep into the backcountry. Climate change is shrinking and transforming critical habitat. Demands for water are pitting city against farm, and wildlife against both.
That’s why The Nature Conservancy aims big; conserving the last large, intact pieces of wild habitat, and the pathways connecting them. It's why we need you!January 24, 2011
