Protecting Wetlands and Watersheds

Our waters provide habitat for a myriad of species, recharge groundwater, and provide opportunities for outdoor recreation. Climate change is drastically altering the water cycle as we know it, bringing more intense storms, floods, droughts, and sea level rise, as well as reduced habitat for many species. Given the ever-increasing demands on our waters, we need more than ever to protect and restore these precious resources and the beneficial functions they offer.

Where We Work

More than one-third of U.S. fish and wildlife species are at risk of extinction in the coming decades. We're on the ground in seven regions across the country, collaborating with 52 state and territory affiliates to reverse the crisis and ensure wildlife thrive.
