The world’s wildest places, the last refuges for nature, are under constant pressure from population growth and associated resource development, including logging, mining and oil and gas drilling. Protecting these global treasures is a difficult challenge, but it is one we must meet. The fate of so many of the world’s endangered species is at risk. Pew invests in public education and advocacy efforts to mobilize support for protection of some of the world’s last great wilderness and forests on public lands in North America and around the world.

In addition, Pew takes its lands work to the farm with efforts to address the broken, unhealthy and unsustainable practices common to many of the largest industrial animal production facilities in America.
