Who We Are
For over 30 years, WildEarth Guardians has worked to protect and restore the wildlife, wild places, wild rivers, and health of the American West. We believe in the intrinsic rights of nature, the blessings of diversity, the critical role of bold action, and the belief that citizens’ voices are essential—on the streets, in the halls of Congress, and in the courtroom—to address the nature and climate crises.
For the sake of threatened wildlife, we are relentless advocates, reformers, and voices for the vulnerable.
We are working diligently to protect, restore, and connect the vast landscapes of the American West.
Rivers across the American West are in crisis, which is why we are fighting to restore these vital arteries of life.
Climate + Energy
To take bold climate action, we must stop leasing America’s public lands and waters to the fossil fuel industry.
