Our Changing Climate
We have a passion for wildlife, from sea stars and puffins to tigers and polar bears. We care about people and community and want to do our part to ensure a healthy world for all to share.
Join us in continuing the climate conversation and find opportunities to be a part of the collective solutions in your community.
Taking Action Together
Around the world, communities are taking action through collaboration and innovation. The good news is, no matter where we live, steps we take in our local communities can have an impact on our global climate. Sign up to plant carbon-storing habitat locally at Tacoma Tree Foundation and Metro Parks Tacoma Chip-in!
Communities, companies and governments are using their collective power to develop climate-friendly systems and practices. One powerful action you can take is to open up and talk about our changing climate (especially solutions) with your friends, family and colleagues. Sound daunting? Helpful tips here!
We help visitors connect to wildlife affected by our changing climate, while we work to reduce our carbon footprint. Our goal is to reach net zero emissions by 2050. As an Arctic Ambassador Center for Polar Bears International, we support conservation research and education to secure a future for polar bears across the Arctic.
