Climate Change

Threats and Impacts



The Conservancy is heavily engaged at the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP20, in Lima, Peru.  Hear more about our work in Lima.

Climate change is already beginning to transform life on Earth. Around the globe, seasons are shifting, temperatures are climbing and sea levels are rising. And meanwhile, our planet must still supply us – and all living things – with air, water, food and safe places to live. If we don't act now, climate change will rapidly alter the lands and waters we all depend upon for survival, leaving our children and grandchildren with a very different world.

Some of the most dangerous consequences of climate change are listed here. Which one will have the most impact on your life, or on the places you care about?
