One of the most urgent challenges facing conservation organizations around the world is the crisis of climate change. Climate change has the potential to unexpectedly alter practically every aspect of the natural world, making it a really slippery problem for conservation groups to deal with. In this podcast, we talk about how The Nature Conservancy, one of the biggest conservation groups in the world, is responding to climate change. Dr. Rebecca Shaw, Director of Conservation for the California Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, weighs in on how the threat of climate change reshapes how the Conservancy operates.
