One of the great challenges of our time is saving the natural environment and the rich array of life it supports on land and in the sea. On land, our last unspoiled places offer an opportunity to conserve wildlife habitat, shorelines, and pristine landscapes for future generations. Reforms to how our oceans are managed 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.
