Heading to the People’s Climate March for Wildlife!

On September 21st, I will be marching with climate activists from across the country in New York City to deliver a clear message: it is time to get serious about climate change.

The event is called the People’s Climate March and hundreds of thousands of people will be there marching together for our climate. The event coincides with a United Nations Summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce climate pollution — and National Wildlife Federation will be there to back Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and advocate for climate action on behalf of wildlife.

National Wildlife Federation is endorsing the march and our International Team is partnering with the United Nations Office for REDD+ (Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation) Coordination in Indonesia and the UN Environment Program for an event which will focus on success stories in reducing deforestation and tying it to the green global economy.

Be a part of this incredible day of action

Attend the march in NYC on September 21st: Meet up with National Wildlife Federation staffers at the march and walk with us together!

  • 10:30am: Anyone who would like to get an NWF sign, banner, sticker or other materials for the march with other members of the NWF family can rendezvous at Le Pain Quotidien on W. 65th St between Columbus Ave and Central Park West.
  • 11:30am: March begins! The assembly location will be in the area north of Columbus Circle, there will be different corners where different groups will begin marching by category, such as “wind energy” “youth” “tar sands” and more.

Take action to fight climate change! The best way to show solidarity to the folks who are marching for climate justice is by supporting our efforts to reduce carbon pollution here in the US through the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan.

National Wildlife Federation has been fighting the root causes of climate change because we know the threat that this crisis poses to our precious wildlife and their habitat.

From devastating moose populations in New Hampshire to causing dangerous algal blooms in Ohio – the impacts of climate change on wildlife across the country are evident. However, this is a global problem which means we need global solutions and we need our government here in the US taking a leadership role.
