A Statement from The Wild Center in Response to the Murder of George Floyd

June 4, 2020

Nature thrives on diversity. The natural world is healthiest when diverse organisms exist together, each adding vitality and support to one another. When one part of an ecosystem is stepped on, starved of sunlight, water, air or nutrients, life cannot thrive.

The Wild Center stands with black communities that have suffered intolerable losses due to racism, violence, and abuse. Recent events have strengthened our commitment to fostering a diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization. We will continue to leverage our resources in the Adirondacks to amplify the voices of the underserved, and work to promote a healthy dialogue among ourselves and our community.

Black lives matter.
