World Environment Day, 2022
Today is World Environment Day!
“Only One Earth” was the slogan for the 1972 Stockholm Conference; 50 years later, this truth still holds – this planet is our only home.
Today, we are inviting you to join us in support of the #OnlyOneEarth campaign through collective environmental action.
#OnlyOneEarth advocates for transformative environmental change on a global scale. The campaign shines a spotlight on climate action, nature action and pollution action while encouraging everyone, everywhere to live sustainably.
While our individual consumption choices do make a difference, it is collective action that will create the transformative environmental change we need, so we can advance to a more sustainable and just Earth, where everyone can flourish.
There is #OnlyOneEarth and together we can protect it!
The UN Environment Programme’s practical guide provides scalable solutions that, together, we can implement to live sustainably in harmony with nature.

We’re In This Together! As individuals, we have the simple yet effective power to make our voices heard through our choices, our civic actions, and our personal interactions. What each of us does, and how we do it, has a huge ripple effect on our ecosystems, and on the pace of corporate and government action.
We are a volunteer-driven non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve and protect open space for wildlife habitat, fresh air, and water quality in sanctuaries on Cape Cod and throughout Massachusetts. Working with the public, and in collaboration with other like-minded organizations and community partners, we are committed to achieving our mission through land acquisition, outreach and educational initiatives focused on the critical role that conservation plays in the future of our planet.
We’re Thinking and Acting Globally. We’re supporting the 30 x 30 movement, which addresses the devastating loss of nature across the globe. Together, we have a moral duty to support the commitment of likeminded organizations and individuals to protect at least 30% of the planet by 2030.
Why 30%? Scientists agree that to prevent a mass wildlife extinction crisis, support a growing global population, and address climate change, we must conserve at least 30% of the planet by 2030. Join us in this collective effort to protect our planet for future generations!
We’re Scaling our Impact Locally. Since the mid 1900’s, Cape Cod has lost approximately 40% of its open space to development, while residential areas have nearly quadrupled. This urban sprawl has destroyed our woodlands, threatened our water quality and natural resources, and fragmented wildlife habitat. Today the Cape is approximately 45% developed, 35% protected, with 20% remaining in the balance. Land conservation is the most effective tool we have in our plight to save the unique natural beauty of Cape Cod. But, we cant do it alone. We need your help to protect the land we love – right now, right here, in our own back yard!
