The land we save is more than scenic.
Protecting land helps safeguard habitat. Wildlife relies on land to live; by working in large areas that span regions and even borders, we can create corridors that help wildlife and human beings prosper.
Land for habitat
From rocky headlands to spruce fir forests to salt marsh estuaries, our work helps wildlife thrive.
Protecting large blocks of forests safeguards the deep, sweet soils needed for biodiversity — giving plants and animals the space they need to roam and prosper.
Examples of our efforts to save habitat include:
- Our protection of critical lands for climate mitigation through the Resilient Landscapes Initiative.
- Our conservation of longleaf pine habitat—one of the most ecologically diverse habitats in the world—and the high-altitude pitch pine barrens of Minnewaska State Park Preserve.
- Our partnership in protecting 10,000 acres for migratory shorebirds, waterbirds and waterfowl under our Saving New England’s Wildlife Fund.
