These changes are affecting our health, the nature we love, and the natural resources on which we depend. Despite these challenges, we currently have the capacity to protect the natural resources of Massachusetts for future generations of people and wildlife.
Climate change is the greatest crisis of our time, and we now regularly live with its effects. We must drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the next decade to avoid the most dangerous impacts.
That's why Mass Audubon has developed an ambitious new Climate Action Plan that builds on our existing climate action work. This plan provides a concrete road map to achieve Net Zero emissions by 2050 in Massachusetts while maintaining a livable landscape for people and wildlife.
The current and projected future impacts of climate change on nature in Massachusetts are very significant, requiring a thoughtful and comprehensive approach and a sustained effort. Mass Audubon is uniquely suited to demonstrate actions to adapt to climate change. Learn More >

Particle matter (PM) is a combination of incredibly small solids […]
