About This Blog
Compass Points covers the world of conservation issues to provide you with fact-based and non-partisan research, science, data, and direction from Pew’s leading experts. Across land and sea, Pew is committed to conserving the natural environment for future generations, protecting species and special places that are critical to the balance of life on Earth.
One of the great challenges of our time is saving the natural environment and the rich array of life it supports. On land, our last unspoiled places offer an opportunity to conserve pristine landscapes. And reforms to ocean governance are essential to address overfishing, pollution, climate change, and loss of habitat. Pew’s work in the United States and abroad helps preserve wilderness, restore biodiversity, and increase understanding of ocean ecology.
From basic research to technical assistance and advocacy, the foundation of our work is careful planning; a consistent focus on facts, science and data; strong partnerships; and a commitment to stewardship, innovation, and measurable results.
