Habitat Protection

The Santa Cruz Sierra Club Group adheres strongly to the National Sierra Club ‘Wildlife and Native Plants’ Habitat policy, which states: “ Habitat simplification, fragmentation, degradation, and elimination pose the greatest threats to natural ecosystems and biodiversity and must be counteracted by reasonable and effective measures for the long-term preservation of intact ecosystems. Such measures should be incorporated into decisions made by all levels of government. All society should help develop and implement wildlife and native plant conservation measures that protect ecosystems and our wildlife heritage.”
