Parks can — and should — be a cornerstone of climate action

National parks are uniquely threatened by climate change. Unchecked development further weakens parks by polluting the air and water, severing wildlife corridors, and changing the very land itself.

Experts agree that we must protect 30% of our lands and waters by 2030 to defend against habitat and biodiversity loss, and the worst impacts of climate change. National parks are natural anchors for this protection plan, providing important building blocks. Not only will parks be better protected by this plan; parks are a big part of the solution.

Send a message to Washington now. Tell Congress that we need a plan to protect more of America’s land and water!

IMPORTANT: Personalizing your letter will go further in ensuring that leaders in Washington take your comments seriously. To make your message more effective, please share why protecting national parks is important to you. Thank you!
