Protecting Nature is Always in Season

We hope that wherever you are, Spring is in the air and you’re beginning to feel recharged. The month of May often brings refreshment and a change of pace for nature and people—from flowers blooming, birds migrating, and cicadas singing, to cherished milestones like Mother’s Day and graduations. It’s also a month dedicated to celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage. We look forward to enjoying this fruitful month with you by sharing some important conservation stories.

Securing Critical Migratory Bird Habitat in Delaware

Mispillion Harbor on the Delaware Bay is a critical stopover for the imperiled Red Knot during their marathon migration each year. As these small but mighty shorebirds travel from South America to the Arctic tundra, it’s estimated that up to 80% of rufa Red Knots must stop to rest on the Delaware shoreline. Now, thanks to a 15-year conservation effort, nearly all of the one-mile Mispillion shoreline and harbor is officially protected for restoration. We can’t wait to see the Red Knots enjoy a protected Harbor during their next migration in just a few weeks!

Tackling Climate Change Begins with Forests

Technology will play a critical role in the fight against climate change, but that’s not enough. In a recent article featured in Our Daily Planet, our CEO and President Larry Selzer shares important insights about how we must shift our traditional understanding of “technology” to include both promising manmade solutions AND naturally existing solutions like forests to remove harmful carbon from the atmosphere right now.
