New Mexicans sharing their stories about the impact of climate change on their lives and livelihoods
The Land Witness Project is
a collection of stories about:
FAMILIES & TRADITIONS
DOUBT & WORRY
LAND & WATER
LOVE & COMMITMENT
These stories illuminate climate change-related dangers and opportunities for ordinary New Mexicans to take action right now to protect our home.
We invite you to listen and watch, read and reflect, engage and share.
We've conducted interviews with farmers, ranchers, conservationists, scientists, outdoor-recreation professionals & business owners, land managers and environmental justice advocates.
New Mexico is one of the most climate change vulnerable states in the US.
Their stories underscore the impacts on local food systems, individual, community and ecosystem health, economic well-being and environmental racism of low-income and Indigenous communities.
These stories seek to deepen scientific understanding of what is at stake for us as individuals and communities in New Mexico. Learn more from our resources collection:
