The Environmental Portfolio at the Pew
Charitable Trusts
For the past twenty-five years, Pew has
been a major force in educating the
public and policy makers about the
causes, consequences, and solutions to
some of the worlds most pressing
environmental challenges. Our
environment work is focused on
reducing the scope and severity of three
major global environmental problems:
The use of fossil fuels and other energy
sources that damage the environment
and increase the concentration of
greenhouse gases in the planets
atmosphere;
The erosion of large terrestrial
wilderness ecosystems that contain a
great part of the worlds remaining
biodiversity; and,
The destruction of the worlds marine
environment.
Pew has worked in the United States
and Canada since 1990 to protect vast
stretches of unspoiled wilderness and
more recently expanded our land
conservation efforts to Australia and
Chile. Pew has also become one of, if
not the, largest group of marine policy
professionals in the world, working to
reduce the scope and severity of various
activities that are having a detrimental
impact on the health of the worlds
oceans. Each year many tons of fish
and other marine life are removed from
the worlds oceans due to harmful fishing
practices and to the lack of appropriate
regulatory controls that allow overfishing
and habitat destruction to continue.

Pew began its oceans program in the
United States, focusing on ending
overfishing and protecting fragile marine
habitat. Since 2005, Pews ocean
conservation program has expanded
around the world and has played a
significant role in reforming marine
fisheries management in the European
Union and on the high seas. Pews work
is grounded in the best available science
and our goal is to reverse the decline of
ocean life and the habitat on which it
depends. Our work uses a systematic,
rigorous approach through the
application of the latest science-based
conservation standards to establish
catch limits and to put in place other
measures to protect or restore
populations of marine life ranging from
sharks and tunas to penguins and
whales.

Our current efforts in the Western
Hemisphere are focused on
implementing ecosystem-based fisheries
management practices in U.S. waters,
protecting marine wildlife and habitat in
the Arctic Ocean, achieving clean
energy and climate adaption policies at
the federal level, and designating new
wilderness protected areas, parks and
wildlife refuges on land.
