Protect Nature as a Climate Solution
Old-growth forests. Wetlands. Peat lands. Coastal marine habitats. Regenerative agriculture. Science confirms that nature can reduce a third of the CO2 we need captured by 2030 to slow catastrophic warming. For nearly 50 years, Patagonia has protected the wild places we love. Given the science and urgency, we now focus more than ever on the high-carbon landscapes that can save us, too. For example, through partnerships with local and Indigenous communities and our 1% for the Planet program, Patagonia has supported the protection of Alaska's Tongass National Forest since 2008, with its 17 million acres of old-growth spruce, hemlock, and cedar that hold hundreds of millions of tons of carbon.
