What’s At Stake?
The Highlands' critical resources are severely threatened by suburban sprawl and industrial development. This region lies within two hours travel of more than 20 million people, supplies drinking water to 15 million people, and provides critical wildlife habitat for more than 70 species of migratory songbirds and mammals.
