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 bringing people, science, and the law together in defense of the American West.
Join us December 6 in Albuquerque for Guardians’ 11th annual Treehugger Bash! Learn about how cruel, indiscriminate trapping holds New Mexico’s public lands captive—and what we’re doing to stop it. Plus delicious vegan food, a silent auction, and live entertainment.
