Insider's Update: Tackling Climate Change

North Carolina

Our scientists are playing a leading role in expanding carbon mitigation strategies, restoring oyster habitat, restoring healthy forests, and protecting resilient landscapes.

Join TNC scientists Megan Sutton and Brian Boutin to learn more about the nature-based solutions we’re using to address one of the world's most pressing challenges.

Dr. Brian Boutin is a marine biologist and the lead scientist on the Conservancy’s work to make coastal North Carolina more resilient to climate change. As Director of The Nature Conservancy’s Albemarle-Pamlico Sounds Program, Brian oversees all aspects of protection, science, stewardship, restoration, and community relations for northeastern North Carolina.

Megan Sutton is the Southern Blue Ridge Program Director for The Nature Conservancy in North Carolina and is an expert on forest restoration issues in the mountains. Megan collaborates strategically with the U.S. Forest Service on forest planning and restoration implementation. She is also a leading advocate for controlled burning in fire-adapted systems and for restoring mountain bogs.
