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.
Urge your governor and members of Congress to live up to their responsibility, right now, to take meaningful action to address the climate crisis before it’s too late.
Protect brown bears from a toxic, open-pit mine
If the Pebble Mine project moves forward, massive open-pit mining and more than 80 miles of roads and 180 miles of pipelines will transform untouched habitat into an industrial wasteland, destroying and polluting at least 3500 acres of wetlands and more than 80 miles of streams with mining waste. Don’t let toxic mining harm Alaska’s brown bears: Tell the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to stop Pebble Mine.
Stand Up for Wildlife and the Endangered Species Act
Under the Endangered Species Act, many animals have been saved from extinction. But this critical law — that can mean the difference between survival and extinction for so many species — is facing threats from Congress and other parts of the government.
Proposed changes would lift many safeguards for vulnerable wildlife, rather than improving the Act to save more species from disappearing forever.
Stand up for the Endangered Species Act!
Help Save America’s Orcas from Extinction
There are now fewer than 80 orcas living off our Pacific Northwest coast. America’s most famous resident orcas are in crisis, and we need immediate action to save them from extinction.
Will you take 60 seconds to pledge your support to prevent the extinction of America’s orcas?
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! Urge your governor and members of Congress to live up to their responsibility, right now, to protect healthy habitat, clean water and vulnerable wildlife.
One Vote. Over One Hundred Species.
Hundreds of species, including the Florida panther, have benefited from the Land and Water Conservation Fund since its creation in 1964.
But Congress has yet to provide funding this year for the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Until they act, this program won’t be able to help. Please speak out.
Tell Your Members of Congress to be Champions for Wildlife
With a new Congress comes a renewed chance to save America’s vulnerable wildlife and stop the destruction of our wild public lands, healthy waterways and a stable climate. Please add your name to the “Be a Wildlife Champion” cards we will be delivering YOUR representative and YOUR senators, urging them to be champions for wildlife in 2019.
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.
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.
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.
Stand up for Wolves and Other Wildlife
The future for wolf recovery across America was put in peril when the House of Representatives voted to remove gray wolves, in every state, from the Endangered Species List. Tell Congress to halt baseless attacks on the Endangered Species Act and support scientific gray wolf conservation.
Take Action to Protect the Great Lakes from Asian Carp
Asian carp are already devastating waters and wildlife habitat connected to the Mississippi River. This invasive species will also certainly undermine the fisheries of the Great Lakes and their connected waters if they’re allowed access to Lake Michigan. Please tell the Army Corps of Engineers you support the plan to stop Asian carp.
