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.
