Environmental degradation and drought due to a changing climate impacts quality of life, the economy and New Mexico’s future. Competing needs contribute to conflict and uncertainty. The long-term protection of New Mexico’s natural resources are at the core of Audubon’s work today and our leadership throughout the state permits us to engage in place-based conservation that reflects the cultural and natural diversity of our state. We prioritize partnerships within diverse communities to mitigate local impacts of climate change, educate students about restoring surrounding habitats and empower each of us to take action – all to catalyze significant change over time.
