From 4:00 pm until 5:00 pm
The world struggles with the related environmental crises of climate change and mass species extinction. New Mexicans are already experiencing reduced snowpack, historic drought and catastrophic wildfires. Climate change threatens our cultural heritage, our economic well-being, the safety of our communities and our natural world. Climate change also has contributed to accelerated loss of plant and animal species to the extent that current rates of extinction are an estimated 1,000 times higher than historic levels.
To better understand how our public lands protection work can help address the climate and extinction crises, New Mexico Wild recently commissioned a study by EcoAdapt, a team of climate scientists. The study examined nearly 6 million acres of federally managed public lands that New Mexico Wild has identified as roadless, ecologically intact and possessing Wilderness qualities, yet lacking permanent protections.
Join us for a special webinar event introducing the study and the potential impact its findings have on New Mexico and New Mexico Wild's protection priorities.
When: Tuesday, April 18th, 2023
