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.

Fight Against Extinction and Help Save Monarch Butterflies

Monarch butterfly numbers have plummeted by 90 percent over the past two decades. That’s why we need a strong Endangered Species Act and we need Congress to pass the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act now!

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.

Now is the time to take action for our endangered orcas.

America’s endangered orcas are in severe decline—and the remaining 76 individuals need urgent help to recover.

Send a message now demanding a focused effort by Pacific Northwest elected leaders to help save these orcas.

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.

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.

But the Environmental Protection Agency is now deciding on a plan that could help stop the destruction of this crucial monarch habitat.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Take Action for Migratory Birds

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act will be gutted unless we act. The Act currently protects 1,000 bird species from intentional and preventable harm, such as oil spills, poorly placed transmission lines, and other actions that result in bird deaths. Speak out!

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!

A bipartisan climate solution is within reach—but Congress needs to hear from you to make it a priority. Call on your members of Congress today: Support clean energy innovation and zero emission vehicles to protect songbirds from the increasing impacts of climate change.

Protect Piping Plovers: Urge Our Leaders to 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.

Call on your federal leaders to take action for people and wildlife.

Speak Out to Protect People & Wildlife From Extreme Flooding and Other Climate Fueled Disasters

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. We need to invest in climate resilience projects to protect vulnerable wildlife and people from the intensifying effects of climate change!

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 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 — could face new threats in 2019 from Congress and other parts of the government.

Stand with the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund and support a strong Endangered Species Act today.

Tell Congress: NO Attacks on Our Wild National Monuments!

Tell your members of Congress it’s time to stop attacks on our wild national monuments and future presidents’ ability to protect these special places.

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.

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.
