In case you missed, WildEarth Guardians is hiring a Colorado Front Range grassroots organizer to help us advance climate action and protect wildlife!
The position would be temporary and part-time, but with a high potential for becoming full-time and more permanent. The organizer would help us rally Coloradans behind tougher rules to rein in the oil and gas industry’s air pollution, as well as help advance new policies and legislation to better protect Colorado’s irreplaceable wildlife.
This is an amazing opportunity for anyone looking to launch a career in environmental activism and anyone looking to work with an organization that is truly on the frontlines of advancing effective climate progress and wildlife conservation in the American West.
A federal court in Idaho ruled that Wildlife Services failed to adequately analyze the impacts of killing thousands of native wild animals each year in Idaho. Among other holdings, the judge ruled that the agency violated federal law by ignoring scientific studies that show killing predators does not decrease conflicts with livestock.
Wildlife Services kills millions of wild animals every year, including wolves, grizzly bears, otters, foxes, coyotes and birds, with almost no oversight or accountability. Its killing methods include trapping, snaring, aerial gunning and using M-44 sodium cyanide bombs. The agency uses millions of taxpayer dollars each year to carry out the killings.
This is a historic victory for WildEarth Guardians and our allies including Western Watersheds Project, the Center for Biological Diversity and Predator Defense, all of whom were represented by attorneys at Advocates for the West and Western Watersheds Project.
