The BLM proposes to authorize grazing to reduce wildfire risk and improve rangeland conditions. There is no scientific evidence that grazing can do either. To the contrary, there is substantial scientific data and literature that grazing is a significant cause of the spread of invasive species such as cheatgrass and increases the risk of larger, more frequent wildfires. Please, raise your voice for wildness on 155 million acres of public land.

Coyote killing contests are brutal, senseless blood sport that occur across the U.S. They decimate native wildlife and create gruesome scenes that have no place in any civilized culture. Now is our chance to end coyote killing contests in Oregon. Send your legislators a message today asking them to support HB 4075, a bill to ban coyote killing contests in our state.
In Guardians’ 2017 report, we found that “there are numerous opportunities for reservoirs to be managed in an integrated fashion for water conservation and river health.” Water savings due to modified reservoir operations could conserve enough water each year to bring life back to the Rio Grande. Join us in advocating for a common sense solution to support a #LivingRio.
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.
Ask Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson to investigate whether state money should go to groups intent on killing wolves. Send a letter today!
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.
The Forest is revising its Travel Management Plan that will designate where off-road vehicles (ORVs) can drive on the 2.3 million-acre Pike San Isabel National Forest (PSI) just southwest of Denver. Rather than return these roads to nature, the Forest Service proposes to designate these and other remote forest trails for motorized use. The PSI is taking comments on their Draft Plan through November 4, provide feedback now!
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.
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.
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!
The Greater Chaco region is once again in the crosshairs of the oil and gas industry, facing renewed threats from fracking. Stand with us as we push back against this Trump fossil fuel giveaway and defend this sacred landscape! Urge New Mexico’s Congressional delegation to permanently protect Greater Chaco from fracking.
