The nature of Massachusetts will be affected substantially by climate change.

While some of those impacts and response strategies are now evident, there is much that is yet to be learned. Keeping abreast of the new scientific discoveries and tools related to climate change, designing and implementing our own research and monitoring projects, encouraging scientists to use our wildlife sanctuaries, and sharing lessons learned with our partners are appropriate high impact strategies for a science-based organization like Mass Audubon. 

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
