With nearly 25% of the nation’s total climate emissions coming from fossil fuels taken from public lands and roughly one million of the Earth’s estimated eight million species threatened with extinction in coming decades, Earthjustice’s work to protect wildlands, wildlife, and waters is more critical than ever. This presentation by Earthjustice’s Vice President of Litigation for Lands, Wildlife, and Oceans will address the ways Earthjustice is working to preserve the integrity of public lands, to end the extraction of fossil fuels, and to restore ecosystems to safeguard biodiversity.
