Protecting the Climate

Climate change is today’s most pressing and important issue for the environment and for our communities. In some ways, all of the work we do relates to climate change, whether it is preserving forests as carbon sinks, protecting public access to shorelines that are eroding from stronger storms and sea level rise, or defending species whose critical habitat is shrinking. We take on cases that directly address both the sources and impacts of climate change in the Pacific Northwest.
