Our planet’s future has reached a critical moment: we have exceeded critical thresholds due to climate change.
Science shows that natural climate solutions based on the conservation, restoration, and management of forests, grasslands, and wetlands can deliver up to a third of the global emission reductions needed by 2030. Protecting our natural areas is the most important thing we can do to mitigate and adapt to the consequences of climate change.
That’s why the Comox Valley Land Trust created its Natural Climate Solutions Fund.
When you contribute to the fund, you are supporting local conservation projects and programs that provide natural climate solutions in the Comox Valley. We use your donations to purchase and protect natural areas right here in your backyard.
Carbon sequestration is key to natural climate solutions. The most effective carbon sequestration happens when trees are allowed to grow to maturity and remain as protected forests capturing and storing carbon for hundreds of years. Through our conservation covenants and land purchases, CVLT is protecting hundreds of acres of mature forests in perpetuity. We also care for ecologically sensitive wetlands, which store carbon in their soil and biomass.
Whether you are looking to offset your personal greenhouse gas emissions generated by flying, driving, or heating your home, or if your motivation is to protect our planet, CVLT’s Natural Climate Solutions Fund is a great choice.
