Avery Hellman, Director, Point Blue Board
For me, working lands represent the greatest opportunity for a shift towards better conservation, and that’s why Point Blue’s working lands programs make me the most excited. It’s amazing to me that Point Blue has transcended typical boundaries in conservation to collaborate with farmers and ranchers, ensuring that this important work gets done. I wanted to be involved in Point Blue because I found hope as well as integrity in the work they do. Their mission aligned deeply with the environmental work I find to be of the utmost importance, but I also see that they focus on being effective. What I love about Point Blue is that they bring out the best in me as a rancher and as a board member.
RSVP to one of our upcoming live events and hang out with our scientists to dig deeper into the conservation work we do. See marine samples under a microscope, observe a live bird up close, and ask questions in real time.
Recently, President Biden issued an Executive Order to raise the level of our ambition to fight climate change. Among the various principal elements in the Executive Order was a recognition of the importance of nature-based solutions.
In a recent publication led by Point Blue’s Blake Barbaree, our science showed that bird abundance declined in interior habitats but was relatively stable or increased in coastal wetlands during drought. Why is this significant?
We have joined a country-led effort seeking to change the dynamics of land degradation in Latin America and the Caribbean. The goal: protect and restore 20 million hectares of forests, farms, pasture, and other landscapes by 2020.
