Our vision for the Greater Gila and stories of connection to place.

17th Annual Guardians Virtual Gala

On September 25th, WildEarth Guardians celebrated our 17th Annual Guardians Gala, virtually this time, with supporters from across the country. If you were one of the over 200 people that joined us for the event, thank you for helping us have a little fun as we far exceeded our fundraising goal and raised over $105,000 that night! For those of you who weren’t able to make it, thanks to our virtual pivot, you can now experience the Gala by viewing it here.

The Greater Gila is an incredibly special and diverse landscape. We believe that the landscape that inspired the creation of America’s first wilderness deserves to be America’s next great protected area. The work we’re already doing lays the groundwork for our vision for the Greater Gila with wildlands forever protected, where native carnivores can roam free and thrive, where ancestral cultural sites are secured, and iconic rivers can forever run wild.

If you wish to learn more about our work in the Greater Gila or discuss further how you can support this work, please contact Kevin Gaither-Banchoff at kevin@wildearthguardians.org or (520) 869-4673.

Thank you for your passion and ongoing support. Together, we can make this vision a reality!
