Climate Change

Latest News

With our 60 years of experience, The Nature Conservancy is demonstrating how we can work with the power of nature to help reduce these impacts and keep human communities secure, even as our climate changes. We are directly addressing the challenge by enabling natural resources and wildlife to adapt, encouraging “natural infrastructure” to help humans adapt, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions to slow climate change.

Take Action Now!

This year, after support from our organization and others, the New York State Senate and Assembly approved a bill called the Community Risk Reduction and Resilience Act that requires the consideration of sea level rise, storm surge, and flooding in certain state funding and permitting programs. Now that the bill has been passed by the Senate and Assembly, we need Governor Cuomo to sign it into law.

Please join us in supporting this important policy by writing a letter to Governor today in support of the Community Risk Reduction and Resilience Act!

Step 1: Download this template letter for Gov. Cuomo. Print, sign and add your address to the bottom. Or copy and paste the text into a new document to customize the letter with your personal story.

Step 2: Mail your letter to: Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, Executive Chamber, New York State Capitol, Albany, New York 12224. You can also Tweet him at @GovCuomo.

Step 3: Tell us how you took action on Facebook and Twitter, and share this link with your friends so they can support the Community Risk Reduction and Resilience Act too!
