Water is the single unifier of all humanity – people, wildlife, and broad ecosystems. This panel discussion will give voice to the impact our changing climate is having on wildlife and habitat, as well as the health of communities – particularly communities of color – through the lens of warming waters. Viewers will also hear how the National Wildlife Federation is implementing natural solutions to address nature’s problems.

Recorded January 28, 2021.
