WildEarth Guardians protects and restores the wildlife, wild places, wild rivers, and health of the American West.
A FORCE FOR NATURE
We believe in nature’s right to exist—and thrive. Driven by passion, we’ve tackled some of the West’s most difficult and pressing conservation challenges over the past three decades. Our work is organized around four programs—Wildlife, Public Lands, Rivers and Climate +Energy—bringing people, science, and the law together in defense of the American West.
For far too long our federal government has used our hard-earned tax dollars to slaughter native wildlife on our public lands. Wildlife Services also endangers people and companion animals, exposing them to poisons, traps and snares. Tell your representatives this all-out war on wildlife and public safety must stop today. Help us End the War on Wildlife.
“We, and we alone, are responsible for the vulnerable places and creatures that depend on us to survive.”
Lynne and Joe Horning are Guardians Executive Director John Horning’s mom and dad. As parents of four, they know all about being responsible for the vulnerable. As parents of John, they learned to be legal guardians of a different nature—legal guardians OF nature. They support Guardians because it’s all of our moral, legal, and ethical duty to defend scarred landscapes, dying rivers, and forgotten creatures.
Help Guardians keep defending the vulnerable in court by giving a MATCHED gift to Guardians’ Legal Defense Fund!
