Conservation Law Foundation has a dedicated staff of professionals whose job is to protect New England’s environment. However, we know that we can’t do it all on our own. In addition to becoming a member of CLF by making a donation, we invite you to participate in one of our periodic initiatives; these range from volunteer opportunities to internships at our offices to filling out petitions or serving as an in-court witness.
This is our New England — we need to come together to protect it.
Cashes Ledge is one of New England’s most remarkable undersea treasures: a 25-mile long underwater mountain range 80 miles off the coasts of Maine and Massachusetts. Cashes Ledge harbors the largest and deepest cold water kelp forest on the eastern seaboard and a vast array of ocean wildlife, from North Atlantic right whales, Atlantic wolffish, and blue sharks to fields of anemones and sponges. It’s also vital nursery habitat for commercially important groundfish such as Atlantic cod.
As a protected habitat, Cashes Ledge serves as a vital refuge for rare, diverse, and recovering species. Take action today in support of permanent protection for Cashes Ledge.
Massive over-development of farmland threatens Vermont’s environment and communities. Send a letter to Governor Shumlin, Agency officials and your legislator opposing the destruction of valuable farmland for poorly-planned development.
