The U.S. Forest Service is proposing a massive clear-cut on Prince of Wales Island in the Tongass. This island has been heavily impacted by past logging activity, making the remaining rare old-growth forest habitat crucial to support irreplaceable wildlife including wolves, bears, and endemic flying squirrels, as well as wild salmon that are the lifeblood of local communities and the economy.
Mexican Gray Wolf
Wildlife advocates are demanding that the grazing permit of a New Mexico rancher be revoked after pleading guilty to trapping and killing a critically endangered young Mexican gray wolf with a shovel. Please take action and demand that USFS revoke this rancher’s grazing permit for this cruel act of killing an endangered Mexican gray wolf!

Greedy special interests and extremists have been trying to drill the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for more than 30 years – and now they’re closer than ever! If they’re successful, the Arctic Refuge could become a free-for-all for Big Oil and a nightmare for polar bears, Arctic foxes, caribou, muskoxen and many other unique and imperiled species that call this highly-sensitive ecosystem home.

Southern Resident orca populations have been declining for decades, and with the pollution of their waterways and the scarcity of their main food supply, their numbers are at a 30-year low.

As the chief executive of the EPA, Scott Pruitt is deconstructing the framework of regulations that protect our land, air and water – he’s even dismantling the very agency he leads. Urge Congress and the president to end Pruitt’s reign at the EPA.
The Trump administration’s proposal to open up oil and gas development along the Pacific Coast would intensify threats to orcas and quicken their extinction unless protective measures are adopted now. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) was expected to update the orcas’ critical habitat in 2017 to include coastal waters off Washington, Oregon and California but that update never happened. Urge NMFS to stop delaying this necessary step to save orcas before it’s too late.

Wildlife has value that cannot be calculated. But the Trump administration has put a price on our wildlife and they have shown time and again that they are willing to trade it away for short-sighted gains and to win favor with special interests. Right now, our policy experts are pouring over the details of these plans and we will be keeping you up-to-date with further information as we learn more. But you don't have to wait to take action on behalf of wildlife. Voice your opposition to these plans today!
One in four species of sharks is already in danger of extinction. The U.S. must take a leading role in the fight to stop the slaughter by banning the trade of shark fins at the national level. Call on your members of Congress to support S. 793 and H.R. 1456, the Shark Fin Trade Elimination Act, and put an end to the U.S. commercial fin trade.
Building a massive, impenetrable barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border would wreak havoc on wildlife, critical habitat and communities. For many species, it would be the end of the road – and as a taxpayer, Congress and the administration expect you to foot the bill for its destruction. Tell Congress not to use your taxes to fund the end of the road for wildlife.
In its latest bid to sell out our public resources, the Trump administration recently announced its intentions to expose nearly all U.S. coastal waters to dirty and dangerous oil and gas exploration. Act Now: Demand that our marine wildlife and oceans be protected from destructive oil and gas drilling.
