Ongoing research is essential to understanding how climate change impacts every part of our planet and what we can do to help. We can stay up-to-date on current findings and use the data to identify potential solutions and help us make decisions about the future. The Climate Toolkit encourages zoos, museums and botanical gardens to seek out intra-organizational initiatives and partnerships with local universities, using our organizations as living laboratories for research to discover new technologies, practices and policies that can address climate change.
