The Department of the Interior (DOI) is trying to prematurely strip Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections from nearly all gray wolves in the lower 48 states. This could be a death sentence for wolves!

Interior Secretary nominee David Bernhardt has so many conflicts of interest he has to carry a crib sheet to remember them all. A former oil and gas lobbyist, many of his actions as an Interior appointee have directly benefited the dirty industries he represented.

The administration proposed to massively scale back protections under the Clean Water Act. New guidelines propose to strip protections from over half our wetlands, and agencies could later adopt a rule that would threaten at least 70% of our nation’s streams.

Congress has another vulnerable species in the crosshairs: Yellowstone’s grizzly bears. Both the House and Senate have introduced bills that would strip these grizzly bears of all ESA protections. Congressional meddling in wildlife conservation is becoming a lethal trend. And as we saw with gray wolves in the Northern Rockies, the inevitable outcome will be dead wildlife. Take action and let your elected officials know that you oppose this reckless scheme to kill grizzlies!
Hundreds of wildlife species are literally being traded into extinction. The international trade in wildlife and wildlife products is worth hundreds of billions of dollars a year, and the illegal trade is on a scale comparable to the worldwide trade in drugs and guns.

The Columbia basin was once the final destination of some of the best salmon spawning runs in the world. But now that dams choke Washington’s rivers, it’s become extremely difficult for adult salmon to return home to spawn, or for juveniles to complete their journey to the ocean.

Fewer than 80 ocelots remain in the United States, and this fragile population could be doomed by proposed border wall construction along an ecologically critical stretch of the Rio Grande.
Polar Bear
SAExploration, Inc. recently applied to conduct seismic testing in the biological heart of the Arctic Refuge this winter, in critical denning habitat for imperiled polar bears. If we can stop them, we can slow down or even prevent the oil invasion.
Unless we act fast, North Atlantic right whales will be gone forever. No more than 450 North Atlantic right whales are alive today, and deaths are outpacing births. That’s the very definition of critically endangered. A bill has been introduced in Congress to take the necessary steps to give these iconic whales a fighting chance at recovery.
Orca
The southern resident orca J-pod lost another member, four-year-old female J50. This is a devastating loss for the rapidly declining southern resident orca population and the third death this summer. Tell Governor Inslee to take immediate steps to save these orcas.
