Our Work & Impact

90%
of old-growth habitat removed from a proposed timber sale in Tongass National Forest after the U.S. Forest Service heeded our objections, protecting thousands of acres of habitat for wolves, bears and more.
157
highly imperiled wild scarlet macaws now live in the Los Tuxtlas Biosphere Reserve in Mexico—the second-largest wild population of this highly imperiled bird—after we helped release 27 more.
100+
collaboration projects to prevent conflicts with grizzly bears and wolves in the West, including range riders, electric fencing and bear-resistant garbage containers.
