About WildEarth Guardians – who we are and what we do
WildEarth Guardians protects and restores the wildlife, wild places, wild rivers, and health of the American West.
Driven by passion, we’ve tackled some of the West’s most difficult and pressing conservation challenges over the past three decades. We’ve celebrated small victories (banning leghold trapping in the state of Colorado), monumental triumphs (ending logging on more than 21 million acres in the Southwest), and everything in-between.
We’re proof that a group of committed, visionary, idealistic, and passionate caretakers of the wild can take on the most daunting adversaries—and win.
Guardians’ Staff and Board
Working in offices across the West, WildEarth Guardians’ staff, board, and interns bring their passion, drive, and intellect to keep our mission moving forward every day.
Winning for the Wild
Learn about how we successfully kept billions of tons of coal in the ground; gave the Rio Grande a pulse; protected hundreds of imperiled species; and much more.
Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
As advocates for justice, we must reflect upon and address the ways in which unequal distribution and consolidation of power and privilege have had–and continue to have–unjust impacts on the interconnected web of people and nature. People and nature have not only a right to exist, but to thrive, and any inequities that impact one impact the whole ecosystem.
