The Greater Chaco region of northwest New Mexico is under siege by more fracking and more broken promises. A new plan by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management would open the door for more than 3,000 new oil and gas wells, threatening the cultural integrity of the landscape, communities and health, and clean air and water. Take action today to defend Greater Chaco!

Across the West, native species face excruciating deaths when they unsuspectingly set off sodium cyanide bombs, also known as M-44s. We are calling on Congress to abolish these inhumane tools and cultivate an ethic of coexistence with native wildlife. Together, we can usher in a new era of humane, scientific, and effective wildlife management.
Living rivers and healthy populations of salmon and steelhead have nourished ecosystems and cultures of the Pacific Northwest for centuries. Unfortunately, less than 1% of historical numbers of wild Chinook salmon and steelhead are now returning to Oregon’s Willamette River. We need your voice to ensure that the full protections of the Endangered Species Act are extended to these iconic fish.
Extractive industries on public lands and waters are fueling the climate and nature crises. Now is the time when the Forest Service needs to change its culture from exploitation to healing. Join others in signing our letter asking the Chief of the Forest Service to be a true guardian of national forests.
New Mexico’s Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, wants to dump toxic oil and gas industry wastewater into streams, drinking waters, and on crops. We need your help to stop this. Tell Governor Lujan Grisham not to open the door for toxic frack water dumping.
Wildlife killing contests are a disgusting practice in which the winners are rewarded for piling up the most or biggest animals or even killing the most different kinds of species. We’re working hard to end these barbaric and reprehensible killing competitions nationwide. Sign our petition today!

Join Guardians in fighting back against the Trump administration’s gutting of the Endangered Species Act. Contact your Congressmember today to ask him or her to co-sponsor the PAW and FIN Act of 2019 (HR 4348) to preserve our most powerful tool in protecting species from extinction.
Climate change is a clear and present danger to the Joshua tree. The Trump administration is ignoring the science, as usual, but there’s still a chance to make your voice heard. Sign our petition to Secretary of Interior Bernhardt asking him to reconsider granting protections to this iconic desert plant.
The bipartisan Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act of 2019 would protect wildlife like grizzly bears, cougars, bobcats, and even butterflies by offering them wildlife corridors for safe travel to suitable habitat and away from places that humans have degraded and destroyed. Please ask your senators and reps to support this legislation. Together, our voices can safeguard wildlife and stop extinction!
