Join us in taking action for wildlife today.
TAKE ACTION for Wildlife in Crisis

One-third of all wildlife species in the United States are at increased risk of extinction. Species like the magnificent whooping crane urgently need proactive, local conservation efforts before they join the growing list of extinct species. The newly introduced Recovering America’s Wildlife Act will catalyze collaborative, on-the-ground habitat restoration projects and key conservation strategies that match the magnitude of the wildlife crisis.

Protect Snowy Egrets from Preventable Death

Over a century ago, activists and lawmakers passed landmark legislation to help save migratory bird species like the snowy egret, wood duck, and many others from extinction and decline by passing the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

But the Trump Administration has rolled back these protections that minimize industrial hazards to protect migratory bird species from avoidable harm.

Take Action for Monarch Habitat Along Roadways

Monarch butterflies and so many of our native bee species have experienced alarming declines over the past few decades. Western U.S. monarch butterfly populations alone hit a record low in 2018, with a researcher describing the drop as “potentially catastrophic.”

Help Black Bears Move Freely in a Changing World

Black bear and other species need our help! Wildlife habitat is being fragmented and lost at an alarming rate.

Crucial habitats continue to be carved up by housing, roads, fences, energy facilities, and other man-made barriers. Speak out to help wildlife move in a changing world.

Tell Congress: Wildlife Need Climate Action Now!

Alpine chipmunks are seeing their habitat at the high elevations of the Sierra Nevada Mountains shrink — and climate change is the root of this threat to their survival.

Don’t Let the Trump Administration Mute Your Voice for Wildlife

The Trump Administration just announced a policy proposal that would threaten wildlife in all 50 states. The proposal would rollback the landmark National Environmental Policy Act—an environmental law that has helped everyday Americans speak up and save habitat for bobcats and countless wildlife species across the country for 50 years.

Ask Your Senators to Support Wildlife Crossings

Across the country, habitat fragmentation is limiting the ability of migratory species like deer, pronghorn, and elk to move from one area to another, imperiling populations as their genetic diversity dwindles. These species need a strong investment in wildlife crossings, such as overpasses and underpasses across highways.

Take Action for Great Blue Heron and Clean Water

From resolutions in Congress and the Environmental Protection Agency to nullify the wildlife-friendly Clean Water Rule, to decisions by state leaders allowing the release of toxic wastewater into rivers, to agencies failing to protect watersheds from contaminated run-off—clean water and healthy habitat has never been at greater risk!

Stand Up for the Amazon and its Wildlife

The Amazon fires have galvanized the world to help protect rainforests, and you can be a part of it. Sign the petition to demand American companies immediately stop sourcing any products linked to the fires and deforestation.

Protect Loons: Urge Congress to Invest in Parks & Wildlife Refuges

Considered America’s best conservation program, the Land and Water Conservation Fund needs your help to ensure it can reach its greatest potential for helping loons and other cherished species. Urge Congress to vote YES for wildlife habitat by voting YES for full, permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation.

Support a Clean Energy Future: Speak Up for Ringed Seals

Sea ice in the Arctic is melting due to heavy carbon pollution from burning fossil fuels, threatening wildlife like the ringed seal that depend on the ice for food and shelter.

Protect Wildlife, Fight Chronic Wasting Disease!

A fatal, incurable wildlife disease is turning deer, elk, and even massive moose into wandering, listless versions of themselves.

Please speak out for wild deer, moose and elk: urge your representative and senators to support and pass the Chronic Wasting Disease Management Act.

Save Songbirds from Climate Change:  Tell Congress to Invest in Clean Energy & Cars

Climate change is causing the timing of seasons to shift. Combined with the worldwide collapse of insect populations, this could spell disaster for many songbird species. The situation is dire, but you can help!

Help Stop the Destruction of Monarch Habitat

Native prairie grasslands that monarch butterflies depend on for milkweed and nectar plants are rapidly disappearing. Thousands of acres are plowed up every year to make way for cropland.

Tell Your Representative to Save Birds

Increasingly frequent and more intense “unnatural” disasters threaten habitats and can be catastrophic for species that are already struggling. Hurricane Sandy severely damaged the already declining saltmarsh sparrow’s saltmarsh habitat.

Safeguard Sea Turtles with Economy-Wide Carbon Cuts

One of the most effective ways to reduce carbon pollution—the leading cause of climate change and related sea-level rise—is through pricing carbon throughout all sectors of the economy. Please tell your congressmen and women that it is time to push for economy-wide carbon reductions across the US.

Save Forest Elephants, Stop Deforestation

By supporting companies that practice responsible wood sourcing, we’re creating an economic incentive for sustainability that can help save forest elephants’ vital habitat. Will you commit to ending deforestation and sign our open letter to furniture retailers?

URGENT: Call to Protect Maui Reefs and Sea Turtles

Today, friends of wildlife are calling Maui’s mayor and telling him to protect Maui’s reefs and ocean wildlife and stand with the letter and intent of the national Clean Water Act. We must let him know that polluted reefs will harm Maui’s tourism economy and the waters that wildlife depend on.

Protect Piping Plovers: Support Climate-Smart Infrastructure

Investment in our nation’s infrastructure is long overdue – including restoration of our “natural infrastructure” like coastal dunes, which provide wildlife habitat and buffer coastal communities from storm surge and sea level rise. Wildlife need our leaders to invest in natural and other climate-smart infrastructure.

Bring Bison Back to Their Ancestral Home

Millions of wild bison once roamed the Western plains, with herds blanketing the landscapes we now call Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and the Dakotas. Sign the petition to support restoring thousands of wild bison to millions of acres of native prairie habitat on tribal lands.

Protect Coastal Wildlife by Opposing More Offshore Drilling

Add your name to stand with coastal state governors in saying no to more offshore drilling and yes to safeguarding coastal wildlife.

Tell Congress and Governors: Climate Action Now!

Climate change-fueled rising temperatures, hurricanes, megafires and algal blooms show it is now more urgent than ever for our leaders at both the state and federal levels to take action for people and wildlife.

Protect Bee Habitat from Harmful Herbicide

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is permitting the use of a potent herbicide that is known to vaporize and move off-site without first assessing its impact on native trees and other plants and the native bees and birds they shelter and feed.

Protect Wildlife from Extreme Flooding and Other Climate Disasters

Increasingly frequent and more intense “unnatural” disasters threaten habitats and can be catastrophic for species that are already struggling and communities on the frontlines of climate impacts. Hurricane Sandy severely damaged the already declining saltmarsh sparrow’s saltmarsh habitat.
