Current Actions

  • Save the Southern Resident orcas

    With only 75 Southern Resident orcas left in the wild, we need to act fast to save these irreplaceable beauties.

    Take action today by telling your U.S. House representative to support Rep. Simpson's plan to help save our orcas.

  • Take action to save your state's bees

    2020 was a harsh year for bees. Between April 2020 and April of this year, beekeepers reported hive losses of nearly 50 percent.

    For the sake of bees and our greater environment, it's time to tackle the most pressing threats to our pollinators. Send a message urging your governor to support a ban on the worst uses of toxic pesticides called neonicotinoids.

  • Stop the sale of single-use plastics in our national parks

    Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland has the power to prohibit the sale and distribution of single-use plastics by the National Park Service. By banning single-use plastics in our national parks and forests, Secretary Haaland can protect our treasured lands for generations to come.

    Plastics take hundreds of years to decompose, so we need to tell Secretary Haaland to make a difference now to stop the pileup of plastics in our natural wonders.

    Take action today to protect our parks tomorrow.

  • Tell Congress: Save America's pollinators from toxic neonics

    Toxic pesticides like neonicotinoids (or neonics) are a huge factor in the collapse of bee populations. The faster we limit the use of neonics, the more bees we can save. With your help, we can build a safe, secure future for your favorite pollinators.

    Take action today by sending a message to your U.S. House representative urging them to support the Saving America's Pollinators Act.

  • Stop BlueTriton from draining Strawberry Creek

    I strongly urge you to stop drawing quantities of water far beyond your permitted amount from Strawberry Creek. With over 97 percent of California in a state of drought, water is more precious than ever. The San Bernardino national forest ecosystem, and all the residents and wildlife that depend on it, are counting on your sustainable use of the area's natural resources.

  • Tell the FWS: Protect the greater sage grouse

    The greater sage grouse's habitat has been shrinking for years, and that loss of habitat is fueling a terrible decline. Since Americans began settling the West, sage grouse numbers have declined by as much as 95 percent.

    This unique bird is an icon of the American West -- so to save it and the ecosystem it relies on, we need to protect the sage grouse.

  • Tell Montana's Fish and Wildlife Commission: Protect the wolves

    In 2020, Montana's wolves faced a challenging year. During the 2020 season, hunters killed 320 wolves -- a notable uptick from the average of 242 wolves killed in the last eight years.

    With the state's wolves already on the decline, it's crucial for the health of Montana's ecosystems to prevent a total collapse of wolf populations. Overzealous hunting once drove wolves from Montana completely.

    That's why, for the health of this great state, I urge you not to enact these proposed regulations.

    Sincerely,

  • Help us bring the sea otters back to Oregon

    Sea otters are one of the most beloved animals on earth. Unfortunately, over a hundred years ago, people hunted sea otters to near-extinction off of the Oregon coast. We, along with our ocean, are still paying the price.

    Without otters around to keep them in check, purple sea urchin populations have exploded in recent years, mowing down critical kelp forests and creating a nearshore wasteland where few other species can survive. Without kelp, many fish and sea creatures are left without shelter, habitat, or their primary food source.

    I support efforts to reintroduce sea otters off the Oregon coast to help bolster the endangered species and restore the health of the kelp forest ecosystems.

  • Tell the Interior Department: No new drilling in the Arctic

    The Arctic is heating at three times the rate of the rest of the planet.

    To avoid catastrophic climate change, the International Energy Agency recently reported that no new drilling projects can be started anywhere on the planet. But the Biden administration just defended a massive Trump-era oil project, known as Willow, in Alaska's North Slope.

    The more than 1 billion barrels of oil that are expected to be produced over the next 30 years from this new site in the Arctic will pose a tremendous barrier to averting climate catastrophe. That's why we need to urge the Interior Department, which is reviewing this project's approval, to stop it from going forward.

  • Protect waterways and wildlife from polystyrene pollution

    Help spare hundreds of marine animals from the harm resulting from polystyrene pollution. Call on your governor to support a ban on foam cups and containers.

  • Restore Endangered Species Act protection for gray wolves

    Hunting and trapping already nearly drove gray wolves to extinction in the Lower 48 once. Without the protection of the Endangered Species Act, wolves are in danger of facing this fate once again. Devastating hunts have already occurred in the short six months since delisting.

    Help protect gray wolves from hunting by urging your U.S. representative to support relisting gray wolves under the Endangered Species Act.

  • Tell the BLM: Protect Dinosaur National Monument

    Dinosaur National Monument is an irreplaceable wonder of tremendous value to this country. A sensitive wildlife habitat, it provides crucial refuge to thousands of native plant and animal species. It's also a cultural landmark with thousands of years of Indigenous history tied to it.

    Most notably, the park is a geologic wonder. The Green and Yampa rivers that wend through the park have carved deep canyons, cutting through 23 layers of weathered rock that reveal billions of years of Earth's history.

    Drilling around the monument has already left its air polluted beyond federal Clean Air standards; another oil rig would only further degrade the environment in and around the monument. Tell the Bureau of Land Management not to allow drilling on Dinosaur National Monument's doorstep.

  • Tell the FWS: Give monarch butterflies endangered status

    The flocks of monarch butterflies migrating across North America this spring are shadows of what they used to be.

    In the last 40 years, monarch populations in the U.S. have dropped by 80 to 99 percent. These dramatic declines have left very little to stand between America's monarchs and extinction.

    That's why we're asking the FWS to grant monarch butterflies endangered status under the Endangered Species Act.

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Take action on plastic pollution

    Each year, approximately 8 million metric tons of plastic waste make their way into our world's oceans. That's the equivalent of five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline.

    Fortunately, legislation currently in Congress would take bold action to curb plastic pollution. The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act (BFFPPA) would reduce single-use plastics, improve recycling rates, hold plastic producers accountable for their waste, and more. Tell your U.S. senators to support the BFFPPA today.

  • Help protect the manatees' habitat

    Dear Gov. DeSantis,

    The Indian River Lagoon should be a sanctuary for Florida's manatees. Normally, they go there and graze on its plentiful seagrass to sustain themselves.

    But a series of algae blooms in recent years has caused the lagoon's seagrass to drop by up to 90 percent, leaving no food for manatees. And these algae blooms are happening all around Florida.

    That's why we need you to limit fertilizer use during the summer and support investment in Florida's wastewater treatment infrastructure.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Gov. Evers: Stop gray wolf hunts in Wisconsin

    Dear Gov. Tony Evers,

    Gray wolves in Wisconsin need better protections. I was disappointed to learn that Wisconsin would hold a wolf hunt this year, and I was outraged to hear that gray wolf harvest from the hunt exceeded the Department of Natural Resources' quota by 82 percent.

    The gray wolf is a beautiful animal that can coexist with humans. There are non-lethal wolf management methods that are more humane than wolf hunts, and these non-lethal methods can even be more effective at protecting livestock from gray wolves.

    Wisconsin should not require a wolf hunt every year. It's clear that hunters can and will go above the allotted number of wolf deaths, and this will have a devastating impact on wolf populations.

    I urge you to do everything you can to end wolf hunts in Wisconsin.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Whole Foods Market: Put planet over plastic

    In a recent report by As You Sow, Whole Foods Market received an "F" for its wasteful practices. This grade was based on the company's failure to reduce single-use plastic packaging, adopt reusable packaging, or disclose data on its plastic footprint.

    We're organizing ahead of Whole Foods' board meeting to convince the company to put the planet over plastic. Send your message today to help demonstrate broad support for tackling plastic pollution.

  • Stand up to planned obsolescence in New York

    Manufacturers prefer when we replace our gadgets quickly. It's terrible for the planet.

    In fact, manufacturers use a variety of tactics to block repair, which reduces lifespans and feeds the churn of devices, which has become the fastest growing waste stream in the world. Help us support Right to Repair reforms which lower barriers to repair.

  • We can't go backwards on solar in California

    A new bill here in California, AB 1139, would effectively stall the growth of rooftop solar and make it more difficult for consumers across the state to take advantage of this clean energy technology. Send a message to your representatives today letting them know you oppose this bill.

  • Tell your U.S. representative: Save our lynx

    America's lynx populations are collapsing, and a recently introduced bill could be the last nail in this wild cat's coffin.

    Habitat loss could drive the lynx out of the Lower 48 for good -- and if passed, the Forest Information Reform (FIR) Act would give companies a green light to develop what precious habitat the lynx have left.

    We can't let this bill sell out critical habitat. Tell your U.S. representative today to vote no on the FIR Act.

  • Tell Amazon: Stop the sale of bee-killing pesticides

    Amazon CEO Andy Jassy,

    Bees are vital to our environment and global food supply, yet right now they are dying off at unsustainable rates.

    Neonicotinoid pesticides are one of the root causes of that decline. They've been found to impair bee reproduction, foraging and navigation functioning. Yet right now, they remain on Amazon's virtual shelves.

    We, the undersigned, urge Amazon to use its influence as the largest online retailer in the United States to lead corporate change by banning the sale of products containing neonicotinoid pesticides. By removing these bee-killing products from its virtual shelves, Amazon can go a long way toward protecting vital pollinators and demonstrate its commitment to environmental conservation.

    Sincerely,

  • Urge Interior Secretary Deb Haaland to restore wolf protections across the Lower 48 states

    One out of every 5 Wisconsin wolves were killed in just 60 hours this February. It was the first wolf hunt that was a direct result of the Trump administration erasing Endangered Species Act protections for wolves -- but it won't be the last.

    Wisconsin is already planning another hunt for this November -- and this time, the wolf hunt could last for four months. It isn't just Wisconsin wolves that are in states' crosshairs: Earlier this year, Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte personally trapped and shot a wolf illegally -- at the same time that the Montana Legislature is poised to allow unlimited hunting of wolves. And Michigan legislators are rushing to copy Wisconsin by holding a wolf hunt this year.

    With more wolf hunts coming down the pike, we don't have any time to lose. The clock is ticking for gray wolves. President Biden has initiated a review of wolves' endangered species status -- but Interior Department staff immediately responded by defending the decision not to protect them. We need Interior Secretary Haaland to hear from wolf lovers like you.

    Take action now: Urge Interior Secretary Deb Haaland to restore wolf protections across the Lower 48 states.

  • Tell Gov. Brad Little: Protect Idaho's wolves

    Dear Gov. Brad Little,

    Highly intelligent, expressive and social animals, gray wolves are an icon of the American wilderness. At one point, nearly 2 million of them roamed the wild plains, mountains and forests of North America.

    Wolves were once nearly driven to extinction in the United States, and Senate Bill 1211 could make that a reality once again. For the sake of Idaho's wildlife, I urge you to veto it.

    Thank you,

  • Tell President Biden: Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    President Biden,

    Polar bears and caribou need the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to give birth to and raise future generations -- which means we need to protect it today.

    As long as the Arctic Refuge lacks permanent protections from gas and oil drilling, some of the Arctic's most iconic animals could one day find themselves out of a nursery. That's why I urge you to grant it permanent protections.

    Thank you,

  • Add your name to keep "forever chemicals" out of our waterways

    Docket number: EPA-HQ-OW-2020-0582

    Dear EPA Administrator Regan,

    I am calling on you to stop companies from dumping all PFAS "forever chemicals" into our waterways.

    Cancers, low fertility, endocrine disruption, autoimmune diseases, birth defects; PFAS have been linked to all these health problems and more. And they're everywhere, used all over the country to make everything from firefighting foam, to raincoats, to nonstick pans and fast food takeout containers.

    As a result, these toxic chemicals have now contaminated the drinking water of millions of Americans. It has to stop.

    Ultimately, we should work to phase out the use of these dangerous chemicals wherever possible. Barring companies from dumping them directly into our waterways is an urgently needed first step.

  • Tell Costco: Protect the boreal forest

    Every minute, a football field and a half of Canada's boreal forest is cut down -- in part, to make toilet paper.

    The boreal forest is of incredible ecological importance to the entire planet. We shouldn't sacrifice one of North America's most ancient and important ecosystems for something we'll use once and flush away. As a major retailer of toilet paper, Costco has an opportunity to lead the industry away from deforestation and toward sustainable sources.

    By committing to sustainable sourcing for its toilet paper products, Costco can take an important step toward protecting this crucial forest.

  • Tell Congress: It's time to tackle animal trafficking

    Animal traffickers are preparing for a post-pandemic boom, yet current U.S. laws to help us understand and combat animal trafficking are sorely lacking. This makes it harder for us to stem the trade that's threatening some of the planet's most iconic -- and poached -- animals.

    Regardless of their size or power, animals such as lions, elephants, giraffes and pangolins all face an uncertain future because of illegal trafficking.

    If we want to get serious about addressing the trafficking that threatens the planet's most unique animals, then Congress needs to introduce anti-trafficking legislation. Tell your representative: It's time to tackle trafficking.

  • Tell the FWS to protect our manatees

    More than 500 manatees died in the first two and a half months of 2021. That's about six deaths every day. At this rate, we could lose a third of Florida's manatees by the end of the year.

    In many cases, Florida's manatees are threatened by the impact of human activity on their habitats. Various overlapping threats and pressures could pose an existential threat to Florida's manatees.

    Now more than ever, manatees need the protections that come with "endangered" status. For that reason, I urge the Fish and Wildlife Service to classify manatees as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the Department of the Interior: Ban drilling in public lands and waters

    We, the undersigned, urge you, the Department of the Interior, to instate a permanent ban on fossil fuel leasing on public lands and waterways. A complete halt on oil and gas drilling on both land and water is critical to reducing climate-warming emissions and protecting the integrity of several national treasures.

    As clean, renewable energy technologies continue to advance and become more accessible, there is no reason to continue to allow dirty, dangerous drilling. We thank the Department of the Interior for enacting a pause on leasing and ask that the moratorium be made permanent for the sake of our climate, wildlife and future generations.

    Sincerely,

  • Say "no" to fracking at Chaco Canyon

    Chaco Culture National Historical Park got a reprieve late last year when Congress passed a one-year moratorium on new drilling outside the park. But the fact that fracking near Chaco has been considered at all is outrageous.

    It's time to secure permanent protections for Chaco Canyon. Send a message to Interior Secretary Deb Haaland urging her to take action.

  • Tell your senators: Don't make banks fund dirty, destructive drilling

    In 2020, every major American bank publicly committed to not fund drilling in the Arctic Refuge.

    That wasn't a coincidence: Thousands of Americans who care about our wild places spoke up and convinced them that the refuge's wildlife and splendor aren't worth a few more drops of oil.

    Now, fossil fuel allies in Congress are trying to make it illegal for banks to do the right thing, by passing legislation that would force them to fund dirty, dangerous drilling.

    Tell your senators to oppose this bill.

  • Tell President Biden: Shut down Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline

    In the "land of 10,000 lakes," Enbridge is rushing to build a pipeline that would be disastrous for water quality, ecosystems and our climate.

    Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline in Minnesota crosses more than 800 wetlands and 200 bodies of water -- including hundreds of essential U.S. water sources.

    The Line 3 pipeline is an oil spill waiting to happen -- and President Biden has the power to shut it down before it starts operating. Tell President Biden: Shut down Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline.

  • Add your name to defend gray wolves in Montana

    Gray wolves in Montana -- and across the U.S. -- need protection from hunting and trapping. The species is native to the U.S., and it's an apex predator that plays an important role in its ecosystems.

    I was angered to learn that you shot a black wolf near Yellowstone without the state-required certification. Shooting wolves is wrong -- and I urge you to protect gray wolves in Montana against proposals in the state legislature that would harm the species.

    S.B. 314 would allow hunters and trappers to kill off nearly 4 in 5 gray wolves in Montana. That number is far too high and would cause the species population to suffer. S.B. 267 would reimburse hunters and trappers for killing gray wolves, effectively putting a bounty on the species.

    These proposals are unsustainable wildlife management tactics that would cause gray wolf populations to dwindle. I urge you not to sign these bills into law.

  • Tell your state legislators: Say no to wolf hunts in Minnesota

    Minnesota state lawmakers are currently considering holding a wolf hunt this year.

    In neighboring Wisconsin, 1 in 5 wolves in the state were just killed off in the first wolf hunt since the Trump administration delisted the species. If Minnesota held a hunt, we would lose even more wolves in the Great Lakes region to needless slaughter.

    We need Minnesotans to help us convince your lawmakers that gray wolves deserve protection. Will you send a message to your state legislators today?

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Protect the Arctic

    The Arctic Refuge is one of the largest tracts of pristine wilderness in the world, and it serves as a nursery for some of the Arctic's most iconic animals. But without lasting legal protections, this irreplaceable ecosystem will remain vulnerable to oil drilling, leaving the polar bears and caribou that rely on it out in the cold.

    If oil development is allowed to move forward on the Arctic Refuge's coastal plain, the massive caribou herds that come every year to raise their young could abandon this lush cradle, with echoing repercussions for the environment.

    With drilling advocates mobilizing, we need to act now. Tell your senators to protect our natural treasures.

  • Tell President Biden: Support critical protections for gray wolves

    Gray wolves are in danger of extinction -- especially since the Trump administration stripped them of Endangered Species Act protections. This means that states are now free to manage their wolf populations as they please, and some have already begun hunting and trapping season.

    President Biden can halt the slaughter by beginning the process of restoring endangered species protections for gray wolves. Send a message urging him to take action today.

  • Tell Amazon: Stop using single-use plastic packaging

    Amazon creates a massive amount of plastic waste every year. According to a recent study, Amazon's plastic waste -- in air pillows alone -- could encircle the globe 500 times.

    If Amazon stopped using so much plastic, it could have a huge positive impact on oceans, rivers, lakes and marine life.

    Amazon needs to put our planet's well-being over plastic. Tell Amazon: Stop using single-use plastic packaging.

  • Tell P&G: Use recycled paper in your tissue products

    One of the last truly wild places left on Earth, the beautiful Canadian boreal forest is home to caribou, lynx, wolves and more amazing creatures. But this forest is quickly disappearing -- partially due to clear-cutting trees to make tissue products for companies like Procter and Gamble.

    But P&G shareholders recently voted to ask the company to issue a report on deforestation and forest degradation in its supply chain, which is a huge step toward our goal to save the Canadian boreal.

    Send a message to P&G today to make sure that the company follows its shareholders' recommendation and uses recycled paper in its tissue products.

  • Stop gray wolf hunts in Michigan

    Dear Gov. Gretchen Whitmer,

    Gray wolves across the U.S. need protection, and I urge you to do everything in your power to oppose wolf hunts in Michigan.

    Gray wolves are beautiful creatures, and the species is important to their ecosystems. We can and should coexist with this animal, which is native to the Great Lakes.

    The last time gray wolves were removed from the Endangered Species List in the Great Lakes, 1,500 gray wolves were killed in the region. It's clear that without federal protections, gray wolves suffer.

    Now that the Trump administration has removed federal protections for gray wolves, state leaders need to step up to defend this species. I urge you to protect gray wolves by preventing a wolf hunt.

  • Tell Chevron: No oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a safe haven for polar bears, caribou, wolves and millions of migratory birds -- to name just a few of the species that depend on it. It's one of the last places we should be drilling for oil and gas.

    Drilling would exact a tremendous cost on this beautiful wilderness and the wildlife that call it home. It would also be a risky and expensive proposition for your company.

    I'm calling on Chevron to pledge not to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Tell Congress: Save animals by building wildlife corridors

    When a highway slices habitat in half, groups of animals are isolated, unable to breed and may die out. Plus, animals may wander across the road and get hit by a car -- which can also cause injuries for the driver.

    But wildlife corridors can successfully connect fractured habitats and decrease collisions. Tell U.S. Congress: We need to protect wildlife by planning and funding wildlife corridors across the country.

  • Tell the FWS: Ban neonics in wildlife refuges

    Our bees are in danger. In 2018, the Fish and Wildlife Service lifted a ban on the use of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides in wildlife refuges. This decision advances a dangerous trend of pesticide use that over the last 25 years has made America's agricultural landscape 48 times more toxic to bees.

    Safe refuge is one thing our bees can't afford to lose. If America's bees are to have any hope of recovery, America's wildlife refuges must live up to their name.

    I urge you to reverse this decision and ban neonics from wildlife refuges.

  • Tell California's Water Board: Wildlife deserve the strongest possible protections

    To prospect for gold, some miners use a method called suction dredge mining, which vacuums rocks, gravel and sediment from the bottom of rivers or creeks. This practice can kill young fish and disrupt their habitat.

    The California Water Resources Control Board just proposed restrictions on suction dredge mining -- but its proposed rules don't go far enough to protect wildlife.

    We're calling on the Water Board to go further in protecting critical habitat and public lands from this harmful mining practice. Help us protect California's wildlife by making a public comment before March 8.

  • Tell the EPA: Ban Roundup

    EPA-HQ-OPP-2020-0585

    We have to ban glyphosate to protect biodiversity and keep communities safe. The EPA needs to act on its study that glyphosate could harm 93 percent of endangered species by banning the weedkiller.

    Glyphosate kills the milkweed that monarchs need to survive. Research also shows that glyphosate exposure makes bees more prone to deadly infection, which may be contributing to the global decline in bee populations.

    Additionally, glyphosate exposure may be dangerous for human health. The WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer determined that glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic" for humans.

    To protect pollinators, endangered species and our communities, I urge the EPA to ban glyphosate.

  • Tell your U.S. senators: End fossil fuel subsidies

    From extreme drought to unprecedented storms, our communities and biodiversity are currently suffering the devastating effects of climate change.

    It's clear that we need to get off of fossil fuels -- quickly. But the U.S. government is still using federal funds to subsidize the fossil fuel industry to the tune of $20 billion a year.

    We're calling on Congress to end fossil fuel subsidies in this legislative session. Tell your U.S. senators: End fossil fuel subsidies, tax breaks and incentives.

  • Tell President Biden: Restore protections for this ocean sanctuary

    The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument provides habitat for whales, turtles and dolphins, plus other animals like swordfish and Atlantic puffins that migrate to the marine monument. The Trump administration's decision to open this marine monument to commercial fishing poses threats to marine life in the area. We urge the Biden administration to protect our country's only monument in the Atlantic Ocean by closing off the area to commercial fishing.

  • Tell NOAA: Protect right whales from deadly entanglements

    Docket No. 201221-0351

    NOAA's proposed plan to protect North Atlantic right whales is an important first step, but it doesn't go far enough to address the most pressing threats facing the critically endangered species. As such, I urge NOAA to incorporate the following actions into its plan:

    1. Require larger and longer seasonal closures of right whale habitat. This is necessary to reduce the chances of right whale entanglement in vertical fishing lines.

    2. Transition to ropeless fishing gear. Traditional vertical fishing lines, which extend from the surface to the seafloor, threaten the safety of the species; whales often become entangled in lines while swimming. Ropeless fishing gear can prevent the threat of entanglement, injury and death.

    These protections are necessary to reduce the threat of extinction and safeguard the beloved North Atlantic right whale for generations to come.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your senators: Permanently protect the Arctic Refuge

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is under threat. The Biden administration temporarily halted oil and gas leasing in the refuge -- but it's up to Congress to permanently protect this special place.

    Tell your U.S. senators to permanently protect this pristine wilderness and the wildlife that call it home.

  • New York needs a "polluter pays" model for plastic waste

    Companies are using cheap single-use materials to cut back on costs -- and beaches and marine life are paying the price.

    But a New York state bill aims to address the plastic waste crisis. The bill incentivizes companies to use more recyclable materials, and it redirects money from polluters to underfunded recycling programs.

    Environmental Action supports the "polluter pays" model behind this legislation -- but we're advocating for a few changes that would make this bill stronger. Call on your state legislators: Support an amended version of this legislation.

  • Stand up for imperiled spotted owls

    Northern spotted owls, known for their dark brown eyes and spotted chests, deserve Endangered Species Act protections. Instead, the Trump administration initiated a rule that strips the owls of 3.4 million acres of protected habitat.

    This is a devastating blow to a declining species that has already lost 70 percent of its habitat. We won't stand by and watch the species decline to extinction. Will you stand up for these vulnerable owls?

  • Tell President Biden: Shut down the Dakota Access pipeline

    The Dakota Access pipeline is an oil spill waiting to happen. It pumps gas under the Missouri River, where oil contamination would be catastrophic for wildlife and nearby communities.

    President Biden has the ability to protect wildlife and waterways by shutting the pipeline down. Tell President Biden: Shut down the Dakota Access pipeline.

  • Tell your senators: Save elephants from trophy hunters

    One of the Trump administration's most heartbreaking environmental rollbacks was allowing the importation of dead endangered animals as trophies. Tell your U.S. senators: Elephants and other wildlife are treasures, not trophies; restore the importation ban.

  • Tell President Biden: Support critical protections for gray wolves

    Gray wolves are in danger of extinction -- especially since the Trump administration stripped them of Endangered Species Act protections. This means that states are now free to manage their wolf populations as they please, and some have already begun hunting and trapping season.

    President Biden can halt the slaughter by beginning the process of restoring endangered species protections for gray wolves. Send a message urging him to take action today.

  • Tell Coca-Cola: Help lead the way to a world free of plastic waste.

    Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey:

    Coca-Cola has been named the world's top plastic polluter for the third year running; Coca-Cola products accounted for more plastic waste than the next two biggest polluters combined.

    We can't simply recycle our way out of the plastic waste crisis. By committing to reducing its plastic use and replacing plastic with sustainable materials, Coca-Cola can be part of the solution and help us move closer to a world free from plastic waste.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your representative to end fossil fuel subsidies

    Our federal government is using our taxes to fund the climate crisis. The U.S. gives the fossil fuel industry $20 billion in tax breaks, incentives and other subsidies every year.

    Tell your U.S. House representative: The federal government shouldn't fund an industry that's destroying our planet.

  • Tell your state representative: Help save monarch butterflies

    Monarch butterfly populations are collapsing, but the federal government has decided not to grant them protection under the Endangered Species Act -- even though they qualify. To save the monarchs, we need states to step up.

    Tell your state representative to protect vital monarch habitat by banning Roundup -- which kills the milkweed that monarchs need to survive.

  • Tell Congress: Restore the Endangered Species Act to its full strength

    We're in the midst of a worldwide extinction crisis, with more and more species losing their habitat to climate change and human activity -- and yet our best tool to protect vulnerable species, the Endangered Species Act (ESA), was gutted by the Trump administration. Tell your U.S. representative to restore the ESA to its full strength.

  • Tell your state senator: Ban Roundup

    The most widely used pesticide in the U.S. is a threat to endangered species. A report found that Roundup's main ingredient -- glyphosate -- is likely to harm 93 percent of endangered plants and animals.

    One endangered species that Roundup harms is the monarch butterfly -- an iconic creature that is rapidly disappearing. To help save this species -- and hundreds of others -- we need to ban glyphosate.

  • Support our state joining RGGI

    As a Pennsylvania resident and environmental activist, I fully support Pennsylvania joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. RGGI is our nation's most successful initiative in fighting climate change. It's estimated that, by joining the program, our state could reduce its carbon emissions by 188 million tons by 2030. This will protect Pennsylvania's environment and public from the worst impacts of climate change.

  • Support neonic restrictions in New Jersey

    New Jersey is one step closer to taking bee-saving action. The state Senate and Assembly Appropriations Committee have passed legislation that would ban some of the worst uses of neonicotinoids, including non-agricultural use, the largest contributor to contamination. Now, it's time for the General Assembly to support this bill.

    Send a message to your state assemblyperson urging them to support a ban on the worst uses of neonicotinoids.

  • Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: Give whitebark pines the protection they need

    Docket: FWS-R6-ES-2019-0054

    I urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list the whitebark pine tree as threatened, as proposed, and to also designate critical habitat to ensure that the species can recover. Whitebark pines play a vital role in high-elevation forest ecosystems and in the lives of other species that depend upon them. To avoid the devastating consequences of losing whitebark pines, we should implement the strongest protections possible.

  • Tell your governor to support bee habitat on state land

    Research finds that bees and other pollinators actually thrive in cities and towns when the right kinds of plants are allowed to grow in public gardens and parks. That's why we're calling on officials in states across the country, beginning with governors, to support initiatives to create safe havens for bees by growing bee-friendly, native plants on state-owned land.

  • Tell Whole Foods Market: Put our planet over plastic

    Dear CEO John Mackey,

    Our oceans -- and the whales, dolphins and sea turtles that live in them -- are choking on plastic trash. We need to turn off the tap on the 8 million metric tons of plastic pollution that enter the ocean each year, and you can play a leading role by eliminating single-use plastic packaging.

    Nothing that is used for just a couple of minutes should pollute our rivers and oceans for hundreds of years -- especially when we don't need it. If we're going to protect ocean ecosystems, we need companies to make bold, concrete commitments to reduce and ultimately eliminate single-use plastic packaging. I'm urging Whole Foods to be a leader once again. Please eliminate all single-use plastic packaging from your operations.

  • Tell the Trump administration: No seismic surveys in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Docket No. FWS-R7-ES-2020-0129

    FXES111607MRG01-212-FF07CAMM00

    I oppose seismic surveys in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which will harm polar bears and lead to further environmental destruction by oil and gas companies.

    Seismic surveys are a terrifying threat to polar bears, who build dens in the ice of the coastal plain to give birth and nurse their young. The IHA proposal says that polar bears have a 21 percent chance of getting killed or injured during the surveys -- and this 1 in 5 threat of slaughtering an endangered species is far too high.

    The Arctic Refuge is one of the last wild places in the U.S., and it's home to the Porcupine caribou herd, migratory birds, and hundreds of other incredible species. We can't trade in this special place for a little more oil.

  • Stop Wyoming's wolf hunt

    Now that gray wolves no longer have nationwide federal protection, the actions of individual states are more important than ever. Wyoming needs to protect its wolves, not allow them to be slaughtered. Wyoming's annual wolf hunt, on top of the unlimited take permitted in 85 percent of the state, is simply unsustainable. I strongly urge you to end your state's annual trophy hunt.

  • Hold companies accountable for killing thousands of birds

    The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) has been the strongest protection for birds in America for over a century. It holds companies liable for harm done to birds as a result of oil and gas drilling, construction and infrastructure projects, and more. More than 1,000 species of birds depend on the MBTA for protection, and this law has saved species like the snowy egret from extinction.

    North America has lost more than 3 billion birds since 1970. We need to strengthen protection for birds, not remove consequences for companies that kill them by the thousands. I strongly urge you not to allow companies to "incidentally" kill birds without consequences.

  • Tell the Trump administration: Don't force banks to invest in environmental destruction

    Docket ID OCC-2020-0042

    I strongly oppose this proposed regulation. The "Fair Access to Financial Services" rule would force banks to finance an industry that is irreparably harming our planet.

    At a time when our country should be quickly transitioning to renewable energy sources, this rule will force banks to make poor investments in fossil fuel projects that contribute to environmental destruction and the climate crisis.

    According to a recent poll, most Americans -- 68 percent -- support the decision made by federal financial institutions to refrain from funding drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is a beautiful place that should be protected by the federal government -- and I applaud the banks' decision not to fund its destruction.

  • Tell America's governors to protect wolves

    The decision by the U.S. Department of the Interior to remove wolves from the federal endangered species list puts their still-vulnerable populations at risk. Until they are returned to the list, the task of protecting this threatened species will fall to the states. I urge you to adopt wolf-friendly management policies within your state and to help prevent the opening of any new hunting seasons.

  • Add Your Name: No Oil Drilling in the Arctic Refuge

    Docket #: 19X.LLAK930000.L13100000.EI0000.241A

    I strongly oppose the oil and gas lease sale on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge's 1.6 million-acre coastal plain. This call for nominations, which initiates oil and gas drilling in the coastal plain, threatens polar bears, caribou, migratory birds and other wildlife that call the refuge home. The intensive activity, noise and vibrations will disturb wildlife and disfigure the land they rely on, and there is no way to effectively eliminate these risks.

    The lease sale will also exacerbate climate change in an area that is already warming at twice the rate of the rest of the country. The effect of releasing further greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere will extend beyond the Arctic Refuge, impacting environmental quality and public health. To disregard these devastating impacts for a little more oil and gas would be a national tragedy.

  • Tell P&G: Use recycled paper in your tissue products

    One of the last truly wild places left on Earth, the beautiful Canadian boreal forest is home to caribou, lynx, wolves and more amazing creatures. But this forest is quickly disappearing -- partially due to clear-cutting trees to make tissue products for companies like Procter and Gamble.

    But P&G shareholders recently voted to ask the company to issue a report on deforestation and forest degradation in its supply chain, which is a huge step toward our goal to save the Canadian boreal.

    Send a message to P&G today to make sure that the company follows its shareholders' recommendation and uses recycled paper in its tissue products.

  • Tell Chevron: No oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a safe haven for polar bears, caribou, wolves and millions of migratory birds -- to name just a few of the species that depend on it. It's one of the last places we should be drilling for oil and gas.

    Drilling would exact a tremendous cost on this beautiful wilderness and the wildlife that call it home. It would also be a risky and expensive proposition for your company.

    I'm calling on Chevron to pledge not to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Tell Gov. Jay Inslee: Don't allow gray wolf killings in Washington

    Gray wolves are a beautiful species that is native to the U.S. -- but they're under threat across the country. In Washington, the Department of Fish and Wildlife authorizes gray wolf killings as a means of wildlife control. This practice is inhumane, and we have to stop it to save gray wolves in the state.

  • Tell Congress: Protect the greater sage-grouse

    The greater sage-grouse is in trouble. Its numbers have dropped from as high as 16 million to a few hundred thousand today.

    Yet, the U.S. House of Representatives is considering legislation that would prohibit the greater sage-grouse from being given Endangered Species Act protections. In order to protect this iconic bird, we need your help urging Congress to oppose this bill.

  • Tell the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife: Stop killing gray wolves

    The majestic gray wolf is a vulnerable species that is under attack across the U.S. -- especially in the state of Washington. The state has a long history of authorizing gray wolf killings, and state officials just authorized the killing of two wolves in the Leadpoint pack.

    It's simple: No one should be allowed to shoot vulnerable species. Tell the director of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Service to stop authorizing wolf killings.

  • Tell NOAA: Issue the strongest rule possible to protect the North Atlantic right whale

    Due to human activity, there are only about 400 North Atlantic right whales left in existence, and these numbers are dwindling. If we don't act now, we may lose them forever.

    With the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) set to propose a rule to protect these sea creatures, join Environmental Action in calling on the agency to make it as strong as possible.

  • If we don't protect wolves, we could lose them forever

    Once, almost every single wolf in the Lower 48 states was shot to death. Under the protection of the Endangered Species Act, their population has slowly recovered.

    Right now, gray wolves only occupy 10 to 15 percent of their historical range. This critical species requires a national plan, if not a continental one, to make sure its numbers continue to rise.

    I urge you to keep gray wolves protected under the Endangered Species Act.

  • Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: Protect the rusty patched bumble bees' habitat

    The rusty patched bumble bee is dangerously close to extinction. In the last 20 years, the bees' population has declined by 87 percent. The bee once lived in grasslands and tall prairies in the Midwest and East Coast. Now, it's estimated that the bee only occupies 0.1 percent of its historic range. But the USFWS ruled that the endangered bee doesn't need habitat protections.

    Before it's too late, tell the USFWS to protect the rusty patched bumble bees' habitat to save it from extinction.

  • Take action to protect pollinators, people and our planet

    Honeybees and native bee populations are dying off at unsustainable rates, with important consequences for ecological stability and our global food supply. The use of toxic pesticides, including neonicotinoids, are largely responsible for this decline.

    A proposed bill in Congress would ban the use of neonicotinoids and chlorpyrifos, a toxic pesticide linked to brain development problems in children. Tell your senators to support the Protect America's Children from Toxic Pesticides Act of 2020 today.

  • Ban pesticides that cause brain damage in children and wildlife

    Chlorpyrifos is a pesticide that is used on crops like almonds, grapes and soybeans. Years of scientific studies prove that prenatal exposure to this pesticide can cause brain damage in children, and the pesticide also harms wildlife, especially honeybees.

    We need to ban chlorpyrifos, along with other dangerous pesticides. Tell your representative to support the Protect America's Children from Toxic Pesticides Act today.

  • Tell your senators: Support the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act

    Plastic waste is clogging our landfills, flooding oceans and harming marine life. In order to protect our planet from our own waste, we have to force companies to stop producing this harmful material. Ask your senators to hold companies responsible for cleaning up the plastic waste that they produce by passing the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act.

  • Sign the petition: No fracked gas plant on the Delaware River

    I urge you not to approve the proposed liquefied gas plant in Gibbstown along the Delaware River. The facility will pose a risk to local communities and wildlife, transporting gas to the plant for processing will be dirty and dangerous, and the project will only increase demand for fossil fuels that are destructive to extract and exacerbate the climate crisis.

    I call on the Delaware River Basin Commission to oppose this project.

    Sincerely,

  • Ask your senators to save the Endangered Species Act

    A recent move to weaken the Endangered Species Act threatens vulnerable animals across the country. The proposed ESA updates could have disastrous effects on dwindling wildlife populations -- but it's not too late to voice your concern. Protect our wildlife by telling your senators to oppose these updates.

  • Stop timber sales in Tongass National Forest

    The proposal to allow timber sales in the Tongass National Forest would mean the clear-cutting of more than 5,000 acres of old-growth forest. These trees are hundreds of years old, home to the largest concentration of nesting bald eagles and the largest population of black bears. They also serve as a carbon sink and are vital to mitigating climate change.

    I urge you to adopt the No Action Alternative to protect the Tongass and all of the wildlife that call the forest home.

  • Submit a public comment to oppose weakening the Endangered Species Act

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's proposal to change how critical habitats are designated under the Endangered Species Act will hurt vulnerable animals. The proposal to allow the USFWS to exclude federal land from critical habitat designation will mean that endangered species lose out on the resources that they need to thrive. Additionally, the emphasis on weighing costs of community projects will make it easier to destroy animal habitats for financial incentives.

    I urge you to reject these proposed updates to the Endangered Species Act.

  • Ask your senators to protect our environment from methane leaks

    A new Trump administration rule freed oil and gas companies to carelessly leak methane, a greenhouse gas that is at least 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide, into our atmosphere. The rule allows oil and gas companies to leave broken equipment unfixed, which will lead to an increase in methane emissions. Now is the time to cut greenhouse gas emissions, and this rule is a step backward for our climate.

    Gas and oil companies should be responsible for preventing toxic messes. Tell your senators to protect our planet today.

  • Ban offshore drilling permanently

    Oil spills are detrimental to coastal ecosystems and especially wildlife. Young sea turtles can become trapped in oil and even mistake it for food. Whales and dolphins can inhale oil, harming their lungs, reproduction and immune function. For seabirds, oil can coat their feathers, ruining the water repellency and exposing them to harsh elements.

    The only way to stop oil spills is to stop offshore drilling. Tell your senators to support a permanent ban on offshore drilling.

  • Protect California's pollinators from dangerous pesticides

    Dear California Department of Pesticide Regulation,

    I appreciate the CDPR's proposal to limit the dangers of neonicotinoid pesticides to pollinators. These protections are an important step toward saving the bees. However, CDPR must go further to safeguard biodiversity. We urge the CDPR to:

    1) Ban the consumer sale of neonicotinoids. Private citizens aren't typically aware of the impacts of neonicotinoids, and consequently over-apply the pesticides.

    2) Ban the pre-treatment of seeds with neonicotinoids. Neonic coatings dissipate into soil and water, accumulating in our environment and posing a continual threat to nesting and foraging pollinators.

    Thank you for your efforts to protect bees, but I urge you to implement these additional measures to reduce the harms from neonicotinoids.

    Sincerely,

  • Help end the use of toxic pesticides in national wildlife refuges

    National wildlife refuges should be safe havens for bees, but the Trump administration reversed a ban on toxic neonicotinoids in wildlife refuges.

    In order to ensure our most wild places remain true refuges for bees and other pollinators, it's time to reinstate the ban. Join thousands of supporters like you in calling on your representative to support an end to the use of neonicotinoids on our national wildlife refuges.

  • Protect our oceans and the creatures that call them home from plastic

    Researchers have found 10 times as much plastic in the Atlantic Ocean than previously estimated.

    Polystyrene, commonly known as Styrofoam, is one of the worst forms of plastic pollution as it is easily blown from landfills into our environment, making its way into our lakes and streams, and eventually our oceans, while breaking into smaller and smaller pieces -- but never fully degrading.

    Tell your state legislators: Support a ban on polystyrene foam cups and containers.

  • Tell your representative: Stand up for polar bear cubs

    The Trump administration has moved to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling. The refuge also happens to be the most densely populated area of denning mother polar bears and their cubs.

    The activities and equipment from drilling could cause mother polar bears to abandon their dens and cubs, or even cause injury or death to the bears in dens.

    The Polar Bear Cub Survival Act will stop that from happening. Tell your U.S. representative to support the act today.

  • Tell Congress: Pass the ANTIQUITIES Act

    The ANTIQUITIES Act (S.367/H.R.1050) would protect Papahānaumokuākea and other national monuments from attacks by ensuring that only Congress will have the authority to modify an existing national monument. Tell Congress to pass the ANTIQUITIES Act.

  • Tell the Department of Interior to reverse Alaskan oil plan

    The Trump administration is planning to open up 18.7 million acres of Alaska's North Slope to oil and gas development, a huge step backward in our fight for clean energy.

    This plan could lead to the release of up to 51 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. It would also allow for drilling development near the ecologically important Teshekpuk Lake, home to herds of caribou, denning polar bears, and endangered birds.

    Tell the Trump administration: Stop expanding oil and gas development and protect Alaska's wildlife.

  • Tell Secretary Bernhardt: Support grizzly bear recovery in the North Cascades

    For thousands of years, grizzly bears roamed the North Cascades. Now, fewer than 10 remain. In order to avoid permanent loss of grizzly bears in the North Cascades, join us in calling on Secretary Bernhardt to support reintroduction.

  • Tell the USFWS: Don't reduce critical habitat for endangered species

    Docket # FWS-HQ-ES-2020-0047

    I oppose the proposed rule to redefine “habitat” as “areas with existing attributes that have the capacity to support individuals of the species.” This change would preclude restoration of endangered species’ historical habitat, and further threaten our most vulnerable wildlife.

    The Endangered Species Act is intended to protect wildlife from extinction. But this proposal would weaken those protections. As such, I urge you to abandon this proposal.

    Sincerely,

  • A bill to protect ocean wildlife from plastic

    The Plastic Pollution Reduction Act is one of the most ambitious pieces of plastics legislation in the country. It will set state targets to reduce single-use plastic and packaging waste by 75 percent by 2032.

    This bill will help protect sea turtles, whales, and other ocean wildlife from the threat of plastic pollution -- but your state legislators need to hear from you.

  • Tell your governor: Ban the use of sulfoxaflor pesticides

    A new study finds that sulfoxaflor pesticides are contributing to global die-offs of bumblebees. And this is just the latest research showing that sulfoxaflor is toxic to wild bees, honeybees and other pollinators.

    Join Environmental Action today in standing up for bees by calling on your governor to ban the use of sulfoxaflor.

  • Take action to stop this coal mine

    The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) recently authorized the construction of the state's first brand new coal mine in decades. But more dirty, dangerous coal is the last thing we need at a time when climate change is growing out of control and renewable energy is more accessible than ever.

    Send a message to the Wyoming DEQ and urge them to revoke the permit for this dirty, dangerous new coal mine.

  • Save brown bears from cruel hunting

    Docket Number: FWS-R7-NWRS-2017-0058

    Brown bears are some of the most magnificent animals that call America home, and the bears of the Kenai Peninsula are a unique population worth protecting. The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge should be a safe place for bears to thrive -- not be lured to their deaths by human food. I strongly urge you not to amend your refuge-specific regulations on Kenai National Wildlife Refuge to allow the harvest of brown bears over bait.

  • Take action to save bees from toxic pesticides

    One of the leading causes for mass bee die-offs is the widespread use of bee-killing pesticides called neonicotinoids. Neonicotinoids poison bees, resulting in neurological damage, paralysis and death.

    Join our campaign to save the bees by calling on your state representative and senator to ban the worst uses of neonicotinoids.

  • Tell your senators to support the SAVE Right Whales Act

    Right whale populations are already dwindling, and scientists have found the surviving individuals to be "disturbingly thin" as warming sea temperatures drive away their main food source. On top of that, dozens of right whales are being killed by fishing line entanglement and ship strikes.

    The SAVE Right Whales Act would allocate $5 million every year to North Atlantic right whale conservation programs.

    Tell your senators to support the SAVE Right Whales Act today.

  • Stop this 15-year-long oil leak

    The Taylor Energy oil spill has been leaking as much as 4,500 gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico every single day since 2004 -- but the company is trying hard to avoid liability for the disaster, even though it was ordered by the federal government to take responsibility for the cleanup. This long-running oil leak is poisoning the Gulf of Mexico, and we need to stop it before it can do any more damage.

    Tell the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to protect the Gulf by enforcing the federal order to stop the leak.

  • Fragile corals, endangered whales and more need your protection

    The Trump administration reauthorized commercial fishing in a fragile, beautiful Atlantic Ocean sanctuary: The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument.

    Our protected ocean areas are no place for environmentally destructive fishing. Call on your U.S. elected officials to oppose the recent rollbacks to the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument.

  • Monarchs need protection

    Dear USFWS Director Aurelia Skipwith,

    Monarch butterfly overwintering populations have plummeted to less than 1 percent of their numbers in 1980. There's no time to waste: To protect one of nature's most incredible creatures, we need to extend Endangered Species Act protections to monarchs now.

    I urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect these beautiful nomads by listing them as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.

    Sincerely,

  • Procter & Gamble: Stop using virgin boreal forest wood fiber to make toilet paper

    Dear CEO David Taylor,

    Canada's boreal forest acts as the lungs of the Northern Hemisphere -- removing enough carbon dioxide yearly to offset the emissions of 24 million cars. Lynx, forest caribou and billions of migratory birds make this place their home. This vast and pristine forest's value truly cannot be overstated.

    Yet the boreal is vanishing at a rate of 1 million acres of trees every year, destroying habitat for untold wildlife and fueling climate change by releasing stored carbon. Some of this deforestation is to create the virgin wood pulp used to make your household tissue products -- which Americans are now buying more of than ever.

    At last year's shareholder meeting, you heard from the environmental community loud and clear: You can help protect the boreal forest by using recycled paper in your Charmin, Bounty and other tissue brands. As a consumer of tissue products, I, too, am calling on you to make this commitment.

    Sincerely,

  • Save the Southern Resident orcas

    Dear Sens. Cantwell and Murray,

    An 8,000-page assessment of the environmental impacts of dams and reservoirs in the Columbia River basin was just released. Almost entirely absent from that report: mentions of the Southern Resident orca, and how the Lower Snake River dams affect their food source.

    Southern Resident orcas are starving. Fewer than 80 remain in the wild today. To save them, we know we need to save their supply of Chinook salmon.

    But since the construction of the Lower Snake River dams, the salmon population has dropped alarmingly. I urge you to bring breaching these dams to Congress in order to restore the salmon population that these orcas need to survive and thrive.

  • Tell your representative: Listen to the people, protect the Tongass

    Alaska's Tongass National Forest is beloved for its unmatched wildness. A rare population of wolves and the world's largest concentrations of black bears, brown bears and nesting bald eagles are just a few slivers of the sprawling, diverse web of life that lives among the Tongass' sea of centuries-old trees.

    That's why the public overwhelmingly opposes the Trump administration's plan to open up vast swathes of the Tongass to mining, development and clear-cut logging. But with the Trump administration and state officials still in favor of the plan, Congress needs to step in. Tell your representative: Pass the Roadless Area Conservation Act to protect the Tongass and millions of acres in other priceless national forests.

  • Take action to save birds

    Birds of all kinds -- so critical to ecosystems everywhere -- are being wiped out: North America's bird population has dropped by nearly a third since 1970.

    There's a lot we need to do to turn things around for birds, but a great place to start is reducing building collisions. These are a major cause of bird death, killing up to a billion birds each year.

    A bill called the Bird-Safe Buildings Act would make collisions with public buildings far less likely. Tell your representative to support it today.

  • Stop wolf killing in Washington state

    The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has officially authorized the killing of two more endangered wolves. Tell the director of WDFW that wolf killing is not the right way to manage this endangered species.

  • Save gray wolves from hunting

    There's not a moment to lose -- the Trump administration could announce its decision to officially end Endangered Species Act (ESA) protection for wolves at any minute. We need to speak out for wolves right now to ensure these amazing animals will be safe to thrive in America for generations to come.

  • Stop plans to drill on the doorstep of Arches and Canyonlands

    As Americans are preoccupied by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Trump administration is signing away even more of our public lands for dirty, destructive oil and gas drilling.

    Among the lands that could soon be home to polluting pipelines and oil rigs? More than 110,000 acres on the doorstep of two of America's best-known, most beloved national parks: Arches and its nearby cousin, Canyonlands.

    Tell the Trump administration: Oil and gas development doesn't belong anywhere near two wild places so iconic and special.

  • Tell your governor: No new drilling

    Even as large portions of our country and daily life remain shut down, state governments are still moving ahead on approving new oil and gas projects, like fracking and drilling operations.

    In the long term, we know that we can't continue to pull climate change-causing fuel from the ground in a process that wrecks habitats and disturbs wildlife, while clean, renewable energy options exist.

    But right now, while the novel coronavirus prevents agencies from holding hearings on permitting, the public isn't getting its chance to have a full say on projects that are harmful to nature and its creatures.

    Tell your governor to place a moratorium on new oil and gas drilling and fracking leases.

  • Tell the Trump administration: No hunting wolf pups in their dens

    Thanks to a new Trump administration rule, wolf pups sleeping with their parents in their dens can now be shot by hunters in Alaska -- completely legally. This outrageously cruel rule can't be allowed to stand. Send a message opposing this rule change to the Trump administration today.

  • Tell Cargill to end its role in tropical deforestation and save the jaguar's home.

    Cargill CEO David W. MacLennan,

    Deforestation is on the rise in areas of Brazil that jaguars call home -- and where Cargill sources commodities like soy, which has been linked to deforestation.

    Jaguars are on the decline. To save them and other threatened species, we must protect their home -- the world's tropical forests.

    I urge you to strengthen Cargill's commitment to eliminate deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2023.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the Trump administration: Stop offshore lease sales during the COVID-19 crisis

    10 years ago, the Deepwater Horizon disaster devastated the Gulf of Mexico. Today, we're still leasing sections of the Gulf to oil and gas companies for offshore drilling -- in fact, Trump's Department of the Interior just sold hundreds of thousands of acres, while people were distracted by the COVID-19 crisis.

    We can't afford to risk devastating the Gulf of Mexico again -- especially not while the public is preoccupied with a public health crisis. Tell the Interior Department: Place a moratorium on new offshore drilling lease sales.

  • Tell the Army Corps of Engineers: Save Bristol Bay

    Alaska's Bristol Bay is a unique ecological treasure, whose massive annual salmon run -- one of the world's largest -- supports creatures of all shapes and sizes.

    It's a place uniquely ill-suited to a proposed open-pit mine that would be North America's largest. The mine's pits would clog and dewater the streams, rivers and wetlands in which the salmon spawn; its toxic runoff would poison the bay, and with it, not just the fish but also the animals that rely on them.

    For 10 years, local advocates have staunchly opposed Pebble Mine. Tell the Army Corps of Engineers, which will make a final decision on this project, to listen to them and reject this destructive mine.

  • Mexican gray wolves need strong protection

    Mexican gray wolves, or lobos, are an amazing and vital part of the ecosystems of the American Southwest. Their ongoing recovery is remarkable -- but incomplete. Lobos need strong protection if they are going to continue to survive. I strongly urge you to craft a management plan for lobos that maximizes opportunities to grow the wild population, expands the habitat available to them, and prevents the hunting and trapping of these vulnerable animals.

  • Tell the FWS: Protect the Alexander Archipelago wolf

    Up to 97 percent of the Alexander Archipelago wolves on Prince of Wales Island were killed during this past trapping season. This tragedy is unsustainable.

    Send a message to Drew Crane, the Fish and Wildlife Service Regional Endangered Species Coordinator for Alaska, urging him to protect these incredibly rare wolves before they're gone forever.

  • Support strong protections for lynx

    With their tufted ears and bobbed tail, lynx are some of the most unique animals that call America home -- but we may be on the brink of losing them. Because lynx populations are in decline across the American West, I strongly support continued protection for these amazing wildcats.

  • A second chance to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline

    In a victory for wildlife and clean water, a judge has just struck down permits for the Dakota Access Pipeline.

    Let's make sure this project never puts wildlife like wolves, butterflies and fish, and the drinking water source for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, at risk of being poisoned by a crude oil spill. Tell the Army Corps of Engineers: Don't grant new permits to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

  • Dangerous explosives shouldn't be shipped through our neighborhoods

    Liquefied natural gas is too volatile and dangerous to be shipped by rail through our communities. We need to fuel our lives with renewable energy -- not dirty, dangerous fossil fuels. I strongly oppose this proposal to authorize the transportation of liquefied natural gas across America by rail.

  • Stop a mine from destroying Minnesota's Boundary Waters

    The Boundary Waters wilderness is beloved: Its rich wildlife and beautiful lakes make it the most-visited wilderness area in the country.

    But a company with a disastrous track record wants to mine on the doorstep of the Boundary Waters. That would pose an existential threat to the wilderness' delicate ecosystem.

    Now, though, we have a chance to protect the Boundary Waters forever. Tell your U.S. representative to support a new bill blocking polluting mining projects near the Boundary Waters.

  • Stop wildlife trafficking, save lives

    At least three-quarters of emerging infectious diseases -- including COVID-19 -- are believed to have originated in animals and jumped to human populations. Putting an end to wildlife trafficking would help save some of the planet's most endangered animals -- and help protect human populations from the threat of newly emerging diseases.

    Send a message to your U.S. representative in support of the PAW Against Trafficking Act, which will help America reduce its role in the international wildlife trade.

  • Bank of America: Don't finance destructive drilling in the Arctic Refuge

    Fossil fuel extraction poses a massive threat to one of America's last pristine wild places: the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Plans to drill in this ecologically sensitive haven are so irresponsible that three of America's biggest banks -- JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo -- have already agreed not to finance projects in the refuge.

    Bank of America, the second-largest bank in the country, must join them if it wants to prove its commitment to sustainability.

    Wildlife in the Arctic Refuge flourish because it's a place largely untouched by industry. Millions of migratory birds, families of polar bears and the 200,000-strong Porcupine caribou herd would be severely threatened by the intrusion of heavy industry that drilling plans would bring. An intact Arctic Refuge is also critical to the livelihood and culture of the local Gwich'in people.

    I urge Bank of America to follow in the steps of other major financial institutions and refuse to finance drilling in the Arctic Refuge.

  • Tell Congress: No more get-out-of-jail-free cards for bird killers

    The Trump administration has loosened its enforcement of the Migratory Birds Treaty Act, letting companies get away with "accidentally" killing countless birds. Here's how you can support a bipartisan proposal to stop the killing.

  • Stop expanded oil and gas drilling near Chaco Canyon

    New Mexico's Chaco Culture National Historical Park is an International Dark Sky Park -- beloved by stargazers for its pristine dark skies full of constellations. It's a sanctuary for elk, bobcats, badgers, bats, lizards and other desert wildlife that thrive in the dark and away from development.

    But just outside its boundaries, oil and gas development has already taken a toll on the area, lighting up once-dark night skies and releasing vast plumes of methane, among other types of air pollution.

    I oppose plans to expand drilling closer to Chaco Canyon, and urge the Bureau of Land Management to adopt a moratorium on oil and gas leasing on federal land within 10 miles of the park.

  • Tell Congress: no money for dirty uranium mines

    Uranium mining is an ecological disaster. Its waste contaminates waterways and aquifers and sickens wildlife and people nearby. We shouldn't be opening more of these mines -- especially anywhere close to the Grand Canyon.

    Yet the Trump administration wants to go ahead with a $1.5 billion bailout of flagging uranium mining companies in the U.S. At least one has indicated it could use the money to mine near the Canyon's rim.

    Tell your representative to say no to a giveaway to polluters that could do serious harm to wildlife and wild places.

  • Tell Nestlé: Don't drain Ginnie Springs for bottled water

    I strongly urge you to abandon proposed plans to draw as much as 1.1 million gallons of water a day from Ginnie Springs. With the water levels already low, further pumping would threaten both the health of the spring and the wildlife that call it home. It would be a tragedy to sacrifice Ginnie Springs' ecological diversity and natural beauty for bottled water.

    Sincerely,

  • Help save the monarch migration

    Since 1980, we've seen a heartbreaking drop in the number of monarch butterflies making their way south to their overwintering grounds each year. Plenty of factors have contributed to their decline, but it's clear that one of the key threats monarchs face is glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup.

    We spray Roundup by the millions of pounds, and it annihilates milkweed, the plant that monarch butterflies rely on to survive.

    Tell your governor to ban Roundup to help save one of the natural world's greatest migrations.

  • Take action against strip mining our protected mountaintops

    We shouldn't be tearing up mountaintops to produce energy. Make your voice heard to protect the Cumberland Plateau from destructive strip mining.

  • Help save the monarch migration

  • Tell McDonald's: Hold The Plastic Toys, Please.

    Plastic toys in your Happy Meals give children a few minutes of pleasure, but spoil the environment for hundreds of years. Please send a message to our nation's children that their health and environment matter most, by rapidly phasing out the giveaway of plastic toys in your Happy Meals.

  • Protect the giant manta ray from extinction

    Giant manta rays have been driven to the verge of extinction. The White House has the power to use the Endangered Species Act to save these magnificent creatures. Please encourage the Administration to act to protect the giant manta ray.

  • Give oceanic whitetip sharks a chance

    Oceanic whitetip sharks -- the apex predator of the ocean -- are being driven to the verge of extinction. The White House has the power to save these magnificent creatures and the ocean ecosystems for which they are so important. Please encourage the Trump administration to act today to save the sharks.

  • No Wolf-Free Zones in Idaho

    Idaho lawmakers want to make parts of the state into permanent "wolf-free zones" where an unlimited number of wolves can be killed -- even when mothers are in dens with their pups.

    Our nation's wonderful, wild wolves deserve to thrive, not face unlimited hunting. Send a message to Idaho's governor and urge him to say "no" to wolf-free zones in his state.

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Don't put wolves on the chopping block

    Sen. Mike Lee (Utah) has introduced legislation that would erase Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves. That would mean more hunting and more trapping of gray wolves across the country.

    We need to stop this bill -- wolves are counting on us. We're gearing up to make sure that we have the resources we need to protect wolves across America in the year ahead.

    Tell your U.S. senators: Threatened and endangered animals deserve our protection -- not to be hunted and trapped for sport.

  • Take action to stop dirty, dangerous fracking

    Citing economic instability amid the coronavirus outbreak, the Trump administration is planning to give fracking companies a massive bailout.

    More dirty, dangerous fracking is the last thing we need. Call on your elected officials to do everything they can to block this bailout.

  • Thank Gov. Hogan for protecting bees

    Our Beeport Card gave Maryland an A in bee conservation for its work to expand pollinator-friendly habitat and restrict the use of bee-killing pesticides. Thank your governor for supporting these policies and giving bees a chance.

  • Call on your governor to stand up for bees

    Our states should be accountable for protecting bees from persistent threats. Urge your governor to take action by banning neonicotinoids, a class of highly toxic pesticides.

  • Tell the EPA: Ban the worst uses of neonicotinoids

    A growing body of evidence concludes that neonicotinoids -- including acetamiprid, clothianidinare, dinotefuran, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam -- are a leading cause of colony collapse disorder. Bees should be protected from -- not poisoned by -- toxic pesticides. The EPA must act to ban the most common and problematic uses of neonicotinoids, including the use of treated seeds and the consumer sale of these pesticides.

    Dockets:
    # EPA-HQ-OPP-2012-0329

  • Protect birds by strongly enforcing the Migratory Birds Treaty Act

    For decades, administrations of both parties held companies and people accountable for "accidental," but avoidable deaths of birds for which they were responsible. The penalties they issued saved millions of birds by encouraging companies to take preventative actions.

    If enacted, the proposed "Regulations Governing Take of Migratory Birds" would radically change that practice. By giving legitimacy to an often-specious alibi -- that "we didn't intend to kill the birds" -- electric power companies will no longer feel a financial need to prevent birds from being electrocuted on their transmission wires. The fishing industry will be encouraged to cut corners on their bird-ensnaring nets. And the oil industry will have an incentive to stop covering the waste pits in which birds drown.

    I urge you to save the lives of millions of birds each year by withdrawing this regulation and returning to the historic, bipartisan practice of enforcing the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

  • Protect African elephants: Stop importing trophies

    Elephant populations are more fragile than ever. We need to work to preserve elephants, not hunt them for sport. Tell Congress to support the CECIL Act today.

  • Tell your governor: Make your state monarch-friendly

    Monarch butterflies are getting hit hard -- by habitat loss, climate change and herbicides like glyphosate.

    One simple thing we can do to help them recover: Make sure they have the plants they need to survive. States can create safe havens for monarchs on their public lands by planting native milkweed that the butterflies need to raise their young, as well as the native nectars that adults feed on.

    Call on your governor to make your state monarch-friendly by planting native milkweed and nectar plants on our public lands.

  • No drilling in these wildlife lifelines

    Wildlife corridors help wildlife thrive by connecting fragmented habitats. But the Bureau of Land Management is leasing out vast swaths of protected wildlife corridor land to oil and gas companies for drilling.

    I oppose oil and gas leasing in these important protected habitats because, without them, we'd lose a powerful and proven conservation tool that wildlife need now more than ever.

  • Take action to protect Bears Ears, Grand Staircase-Escalante

    The Trump administration finalized plans to expand drilling and mining in Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante. It would be a tragedy to sacrifice these national monuments' natural beauty and ecological diversity for a little more oil, gas and uranium. Tell President Trump to halt his plans for development that could devastate these special places.

  • Save wildlife: Ban single-use plastic foam

    Microplastics are being eaten by belugas in the remote Arctic -- another reminder that plastic pollution is out of control.

    It's time to take serious action to reduce waste, starting with a ban on one of the worst forms of plastic waste: plastic foam.

    Tell your governor to ban single-use plastic foam cups and containers today.

  • You can help stop thousands of bird deaths

    For over a century, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act has protected thousands of birds from horrific deaths due to oil pits, power lines and other industrial hazards. The Trump administration's rollback of this vital legislation will give a free pass to oil companies and others to kill birds without repercussions. I strongly oppose this rollback and support a strong Migratory Bird Treaty Act that prohibits incidental take.

  • Take action to stop environmentally destructive rollbacks

    Docket Number: CEQ-2019-0003

    The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) has been a cornerstone of environmental protection in America for 50 years. I strongly oppose any changes to NEPA that will allow federal agencies to ignore climate change or hasten harmful development. It's already too easy to build carbon-intensive and ecologically destructive infrastructure, and this rollback would make it even easier.

  • Tell Cargill to end its role in tropical deforestation and save the jaguar's home.

    Cargill CEO David W. MacLennan,

    Deforestation is on the rise in areas of Brazil that jaguars call home -- and where Cargill sources commodities like soy, which has been linked to deforestation.

    Jaguars are on the decline. To save them and other threatened species, we must protect their home -- the world's tropical forests.

    I urge you to strengthen Cargill's commitment to eliminate deforestation in all of its supply chains soon.

    Sincerely,

  • Submit your comment: Protect America's barrier reef

    Docket Number: NOAA-NOS-2019-0094

    The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary is an irreplaceable resource: 170 miles of coral, seagrass and mangroves that support an incredible range of wild creatures. Its beauty draws millions to the Keys each year.

    Creating a plan to update protections for the sanctuary is the right choice. Between runoff, plastic pollution, increased boat traffic and climate change, the continental U.S.'s biggest reef faces more threats than ever. If it collapses, we'll lose many of the species that call it home forever.

    For the sake of future generations, and for the wildlife that call the sanctuary home, I support the strongest of the restoration blueprint's proposed protections.

  • Thank North Carolina's governor for standing up for red wolves

    North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper is advocating to the Interior Department in favor of protection for his state's critically endangered wild red wolves. Send a message of thanks to Gov. Cooper for standing between these amazing wolves and extinction.

  • Keep a dangerous mine out of Minnesota's Boundary Waters

    Putting a mine in the Boundary Waters wilderness would spell doom for this uniquely delicate ecosystem.

    It's the wrong mine in the wrong place, and anyone who cares about wild spaces needs to speak out against the Trump administration's efforts to push it through. Tell your senators to protect the Boundary Waters.

  • Tell your governor: Protect our waters from coal ash spills

    Obama-era rules, slated to go into effect in 2018, would have regulated coal ash waste from power plants -- which is leaching toxic heavy metals into our lakes and rivers. But the Trump administration's EPA just made it clear that it won't enact these rules.

    In order to protect wildlife and public health, our governors should pass their own laws regulating coal ash. Tell your governor to take action today.

  • Call on your governor to plant trees for the planet

    Planting trees on public lands is a simple step that can make a big difference. Ask your governor to act on climate change by investing in trees.

  • Save the Endangered Species Act

    It's the 2020s: Time to turn the tide for the wild creatures we love. The first step? Repair the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

    The ESA has been one of America's bedrock conservation laws for more than 40 years. But the Trump administration severely weakened its authority in 2018, opening up the possibility that millions of creatures could lose the Act's protections.

    A bill has been introduced in the Senate to reverse the administration's rollbacks. Tell your senator to support it today.

  • Tell your senators: Vote to save right whales

    Ship strikes, fishing line entanglement and other threats are killing so many right whales each year that we could lose this creature forever if we don't act soon.

    The U.S. Senate is considering a bill that would direct desperately needed funds to research efforts that could reduce right whale death. It's got a good chance of passing -- but we need public support if we're going to get decision-makers to take action.

    Send a message to your senators today.

  • Don't let Nestlé drain Ginnie Springs

    Nestlé's permit request to draw as much as 1.1 million gallons of water a day from Ginnie Springs threatens the area's natural beauty and ecological diversity. Years of over-pumping have already scarred this spring and the Sante Fe River, which has seen a precipitous drop in water level and stalled river flow.

    I strongly urge you to deny this application.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Don't put wolves on the chopping block

  • Stop Wyoming's Wolf Hunts

    As nature-loving people who treasure Wyoming's amazing natural beauty and abundant wildlife, we, the undersigned, call on you to end wolf hunting in the state. Wolves aren't just important icons of the American West: They are vital to the health of the ecosystems they call home.

    We do not believe that Wyoming's current management plan accounts for wolves' important ecological benefits. The state's current management plan also does not provide sufficient assurances that wolves will not be hunted past the point of viability. For all these reasons -- and because we want our travel, tourism, and tax dollars to support gray wolves -- we urge you to end wolf hunting in the state of Wyoming.

    Sincerely,

  • Deadline Dec. 16: Stand up for the Tongass

    We only have until Dec. 16 to comment on a proposal that would allow logging into our nation's largest, wildest national forest. Send a message to the Forest Service today.

  • We can't let wild red wolves vanish

    Interior Secretary David Bernhardt,

    With as few as 14 individuals left, it's now or never for our nation's wild red wolves. It's the Fish and Wildlife Service's responsibility to steward this fragile population, but that bureau has failed to provide clarity about the measures it is taking -- if any -- to ensure red wolves' survival.

    I strongly urge you to hold the FWS accountable and require it to produce an update about the status of the last wild red wolves. You must ensure that effective management activities are underway. These incredible animals could be faced with extinction if we don't protect them right now.

    Sincerely,

  • Save Southern Resident orcas

    Dear Gov. Jay Inslee,

    Southern Resident orcas evoke the Pacific Northwest like few creatures can. Their loss would be devastating, and due in part to threats to Chinook salmon -- their main food supply -- that loss could be close at hand.

    You showed care and foresight when you convened a task force charged with reversing the southern residents' decline. Now that task force has made their final recommendations. I'm calling on you to act on one of the task force's chief action items: Fully fund salmon recovery efforts to ensure that Chinook populations are healthy and steady.

    I know you care about these special creatures just as much as I do. Let's work together to protect them for good.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the U.S. House of Representatives: Protect the Appalachian Trail

    Ask your representative to oppose construction of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline through the Appalachian Trail.

  • Tell your senators: Support the Bird-Safe Buildings Act

    A new study has found that bird populations have nosedived over the past 40 years; since 1970, a third of all of North America's birds have died.

    One of the main culprits? Building collisions. Birds are colliding with glass they can't see and dying by the billions each year.

    The Bird-Safe Buildings Act is a common sense step that would significantly reduce bird collisions with public buildings. Tell your senators to support it.

  • Tell Amazon to promote green shipping

    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos:

    As one of the largest online retailers in the U.S., it's important for Amazon to take the lead in establishing practices that are better for our planet.

    When your customers choose two-day shipping, that means tighter deadlines, which means half-full trucks, more trips and less efficiency -- and that results in a lot more carbon emissions.

    There is one simple step you can take for our planet that would have a huge impact: Alert customers that standard shipping is greener by adding "Go Green" before that option. By nudging shoppers towards choosing standard, you can help reduce emissions that contribute to climate change.

    It's almost the holiday season -- I urge you to make this simple but profound change before millions of Americans start buying their gifts.

  • Tell President Trump: Recommit to the Paris Climate Agreement

    President Trump has begun the formal withdrawal from the landmark agreement to address climate change. Call on his administration to recommit to the goals outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement in order to protect our planet from the impacts of global warming.

  • Tell P&G: Stop using virgin boreal forest wood fiber to make toilet paper

    Dear CEO David Taylor,

    Canada's boreal forest acts as the lungs of the Northern Hemisphere -- removing enough carbon dioxide yearly to offset the emissions of 24 million cars. Lynx, forest caribou and billions of migratory birds make this place their home. This pristine forest's value truly cannot be overstated.

    Yet the boreal is vanishing at a rate of 1 million acres of trees every year, destroying habitat for untold wildlife and fueling climate change by releasing stored carbon. Some of this deforestation is to create the virgin wood pulp used to make your household tissue products.

    At your 2019 shareholder meeting, you heard from the environmental community loud and clear: You can take a huge step for the boreal forest by using recycled paper in your Charmin, Bounty and other tissue brands. As a consumer of tissue products, I, too, am calling on you to make this commitment.

    Sincerely,

  • Don't drill in Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments

    Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante are national treasures, home to flourishing ecosystems and stunning landscapes of arching, twisting red rock and sandstone.

    There's no question that the Trump administration's plan to open them up for mining and drilling would be catastrophic for these special places.

    I strongly oppose the Bureau of Land Management's plan to open up these monuments for extraction.

  • Tell Snapple to ditch their plastic bottles

    To Bob Gamgort, CEO of Keurig Dr. Pepper, owner of Snapple, Inc.

    Dear Mr. Gamgort,

    Snapple has long advertised its "All Natural" beverages as being "made from the best stuff on earth". So, we are dismayed that Snapple has used some of the worst stuff on earth -- petroleum-based plastic -- to make the bottles carrying your tea and juices. While the plastic is "recyclable", most of your bottles are probably not actually being "recycled". Instead, they are being tossed into landfills, even the ocean, where they end up as fodder for whales, turtles, and, eventually, you and I.

    We encourage you to shift back as quickly as possible to glass bottles, which are more easily recycled. In parts of Europe, the glass recycling rate is 90%. We also encourage you to support efforts to reduce the number of beverage containers used, to develop systems that facilitate reuse and recycling, and to create truly biodegradable containers.

  • Tell your Senators: Stop another Deepwater Horizon

    The Deepwater drilling disaster taught us that even one oil spill can exact an unbearable toll on our environment. But Trump administration plans would reverse restrictions put in place after Deepwater and open up the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to offshore drilling.

    The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that would stop these plans in their tracks -- but now we need the Senate to act. Tell your senators to take action to protect our coasts today.

  • Tell your U.S. senators: Protect the Tongass National Forest

    The Tongass National Forest, a lush wilderness the size of West Virginia, is the crown jewel of the National Forest System. We need to stop the administration's plans to log this beautiful place.

    The U.S. Senate is considering legislation that would protect not only the Tongass, but also millions of acres of roadless national forest across America. Tell your senators to support this legislation today.

  • Support NOAA's proposal to expand protected habitat for Southern Resident orcas

    Dear NOAA Coordinator Lynne Barre,

    Just 73 Southern Resident orcas remain, the lowest number in more than three decades. Expanding orcas' habitat protection is critical to saving these extraordinary animals from habitat pollution and degradation -- threats that have amounted to a steady decline in population.

    To preserve biodiversity, prevent further pollution, and protect orcas for generations to come, I urge NOAA to expand critical habitat from the Salish Sea south along the coasts of Washington, Oregon and California for Southern Resident orcas.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell your governor: Commit to compost

    Instead of being returned to the earth where it can help things grow, our organic waste is piling up in trash dumps and fueling climate change -- 50 million tons of it in the U.S. alone each year.

    With just a little more effort, we can turn food scraps and lawn trimmings into valuable compost -- "black gold" as it's known by gardeners -- that could allow us to stop using polluting chemical fertilizers, replenish agricultural soil, and even protect our climate.

  • Take action for the last wild red wolves

    It is the Fish and Wildlife Service's responsibility to protect and maintain the final remaining population of wild red wolves. With as few as 14 individuals left, it's now or never for this irreplaceable species. I strongly urge you to reveal the details of your current management activities to assure the public that you are doing all you can to keep the last wild red wolves safe.

    Sincerely,

  • Add your name: Support reintroduction of grizzly bears to the North Cascades

    Dear NPS Deputy Director Dan Smith,

    For thousands of years, grizzly bears have been an integral part of the North Cascades ecosystem. Now, fewer than ten grizzlies remain.

    In order to avoid the permanent loss of the grizzly bear in the region, I strongly urge you to finalize and implement a plan reintroducing grizzlies to the North Cascades National Park. This proposal will address the main threats to North Cascades grizzlies -- namely, their isolation and small population size -- thereby supporting species recovery.

    Please do all you can to ensure the North Cascades has grizzly bears for generations to come.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the Bureau of Land Management: Oppose construction of Ambler Road

    Dear Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt,

    I strongly urge you to reject plans for the construction of Amber Road, a 211-mile private road that threatens the North Alaskan ecosystem.

    If built, Ambler Road would cross the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve, 2,900 streams and 11 major rivers. This route would interrupt the migration of the Western Arctic Caribou herd and threaten salmon and whitefish populations. After construction is complete and mining begins, acid mine drainage may contaminate waterways, poisoning fish and fauna for hundreds of years.

    The natural riches of the Alaskan wilderness landscape should not be sacrificed for mining firms' profits. Please stand against Ambler Road.

    Sincerely,

  • "No Action" on Willow Project

    Docket No.: DOI-BLM-AK-0000-2018-0004-EIS

    The proposed Willow project could be devastating to the vulnerable wildlife that depend on the land -- such as the porcupine caribou, for which the Teshekpuk Lake Special Area has been a critical calving ground for centuries. This critical and irreplaceable land shouldn't be jeopardized by the construction of risky pipelines and drilling sites for more oil, especially when we have better, cleaner energy methods.

    I urge the Bureau of Land Management to protect this land, and the wildlife, by adapting the "no action" alternative.

    Sincerely,

  • Support the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposal to list Franklin's bumble bee as endangered.

    I strongly support the proposal to place Franklin's bumble bee on the Endangered Species List.

    Last seen in 2006, Franklin's bumble bee is considered imminently imperiled. Populations have been declining precipitously since 1998, and habitat loss, pesticides and pollution continually threaten its existence. Listing Franklin's bumble bee on the Endangered Species List is an important step toward raising awareness of the bee's critical status and ensuring protection.

  • Help save the monarch butterfly

    Dear USFWS Acting Director Greg Sheehan,

    Monarch butterflies are among nature's most incredible creatures, traveling thousands of miles each year to and from their winter home. They're also a critical part of our ecosystems, pollinating wildflowers and serving as important indicators of ecosystem health.

    Now, monarchs are in danger of disappearing. I urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect these beautiful nomads by listing them as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell the Environmental Protection Agency: Do not weaken regulations on toxic coal ash pollution

    Dear EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler,

    I strongly oppose all proposed changes to current coal ash regulations. Toxic coal ash, containing arsenic, mercury, lead and other carcinogens, threatens environmental and public health. With global warming increasing the frequency of heavier rains and storms, it is of the utmost importance the EPA takes action to mitigate the risk of coal ash polluting groundwater. Yet the proposed changes threaten to do the exact opposite. Without strong enforcement of storage regulations, and regular groundwater monitoring to assess potential contamination, people and animals will become poisoned by toxic ash.

    By signing this pledge, I affirm my opposition to the EPA's proposed rollbacks to the Coal Ash Rule.

    Sincerely,

  • Call on the Environmental Protection Agency to Ban Bee-Killing Neonicotinoids

    Neonicotinoids are a leading cause of international colony collapse. These toxic pesticides poison bees' central nervous systems, causing neurological damage, paralysis and death.

    Large-scale bee deaths have rippling effects throughout ecosystems. To protect bees and the food webs that depend on them, we are calling on the EPA to ban the most common and problematic uses of neonicotinoids.

  • Tell the Environmental Protection Agency not to weaken methane regulation

    I strongly urge you not to finalize planned rollbacks to the direct federal regulation of methane leaks from oil and gas facilities.

    The regulation and reduction of methane emissions is crucial to protecting our environment and combating global warming. Although methane accounts for less than ten percent of greenhouse gas emissions, it is responsible for more than a quarter of our planet's warming. These proposed rollbacks are estimated to increase emissions by hundreds of thousands of tons annually -- exponentially increasing the amount of heat trapped in our atmosphere and accelerating global warming. It is clear that methane emissions need to be decreased, not deregulated.

  • Tell the Army Corps of Engineers: Save Bristol Bay, stop Pebble Mine

    Bristol Bay's lush green landscape of wetlands and blooming tundra may soon be torn apart for a dangerous gold and copper mine.

    The Environmental Protection Agency has described Pebble Mine's draft environmental impact report as lacking key details and underestimating the risk for water quality and fish habitat in the Bristol Bay watershed. Open-pit mining in Bristol Bay would be extremely disruptive to the area, tearing up the land, polluting the water, and harming the wildlife, especially the salmon population.

    We shouldn't destroy the land, harm the wildlife, or risk the water quality of Bristol Bay for a mine. I urge you to halt the Pebble Mine project.

  • Protect the Alexander Archipelago wolf

    The Alexander Archipelago wolf, notably smaller in size and weight and darker in color, is one of the world's rarest wolf subspecies. The wolves have been in decline since logging began in the Tongass National Forest in the 1990's, and with the state of Alaska and the logging industry moving to open more of the Tongass up to logging, the wolves are at an even greater risk.

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service seriously considered listing the Alexander Archipelago wolves as endangered or threatened in 2016, but decided against it. With the current estimated population at fewer than 200 wolves and an increased threat of logging, it's time the FWS reconsiders.

  • Tell Congress: Protect lions from trophy hunting

    Taylor Energy Co. has been fighting a federal order to stop the leak, while the oil has been putting wildlife at risk. We need to tell the Environmental Protection Agency to protect the Gulf and enforce the order.

  • Tell the Senate: Support the Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act

    Ask your senators to permanently protect 1 million acres of public land adjacent to the Grand Canyon from toxic uranium mining.

  • Tell the Bureau of Land Management: Don't expand coal mining in Colorado

    I strongly urge you not to finalize a plan that would expand coal mining in southwestern Colorado.

    Coal mining is a dirty, dangerous process that has been proven to result in deforestation, habitat degradation, water contamination and air pollution. Colorado already has the scars of mining. Across the state, over 23,000 mines are abandoned and 1,800 miles of streams have been contaminated by mine pollution. In an already damaged environment, more mining is the last thing we need.

  • Save the Southern Resident orcas

    Make sure saving the Southern Resident orcas is a priority. Tell Sens. Cantwell and Murray to support the removal of the Lower Snake River dams and restoration of Chinook salmon populations.

    Sign up here for instructions.

  • Tell your state legislators: Support a statewide ban on the worst single-use plastics

    So much plastic ends up in our oceans that it's washing ashore and creating a new form of plastic pollution. In just a few years, 'plasticrust' has coated almost 10 percent of shoreline rocks on the island where it was discovered.

    We can't keep ignoring the signs of this growing plastic epidemic that we've created for ourselves. And we can greatly reduce the problem with one simple fix: Stop using single use plastics.

    Tell your state legislators to support a statewide ban on the worst single-use plastics in your state.

  • Tell the USDA to resume honeybee tracking

    Ask the U.S. Department of Agriculture to resume data collection for its annual Honey Bee Colonies report, which can be used by scientists and beekeepers to analyze the effects of climate change and pesticides on bees.

  • Send a message to your U.S. House Representative to ban neonics in National Wildlife Refuges

    Protect bees from toxic pesticides in 150 million acres across the nation by sending a message to your U.S. representative today.

  • Tell the EPA: Stop the Taylor Energy oil leak

  • Stop drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling will have disastrous effects on wildlife before any drilling even begins. The low-flying planes repeatedly surveying the refuge will still disturb polar bears, caribou and seals.

    This method of searching for oil will scare caribou and seals away -- deserting the territory crucial to their way of life -- and can cause polar bears to abandon the coastline of the plain where they should be denning with their cubs.

  • Tell Congress: Support the Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2019

    The Tongass National Forest is the world's largest remaining temperate rainforest and is home to bald eagles, deer and more bears than people. All of this is at risk if roadbuilding, logging and mining invade the forest.

    The Roadless Area Conservation Act would permanently uphold the protections of the Roadless Rule for almost 60 million acres of our national forests, some of the last remaining truly wild spaces left. Tell your U.S. representative to support the Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2019.

  • Tell Congress: Protect the North Atlantic Right Whale

    Human activity has pushed the North Atlantic right whale to the brink of extinction, but there's still hope. Tell your representative to support the SAVE Right Whales Act.

  • Save Wolves and other Wildlife from Deadly Cyanide Bombs

    An animal that triggers a "cyanide bomb" can asphyxiate and die in just minutes. These deadly traps don't discriminate -- they've poisoned people and killed animals from pet dogs to endangered wolves. It's past time to ban them nationwide.

    Send a message to your U.S. representative urging them to support HR 2471, a bill that will end the use of cyanide bombs for predator control across the country.

  • Tell Washington's Senators: The Nation Wants to Save Southern Resident Orcas

    Dear Sens. Cantwell and Murray,

    Southern Resident orcas are starving. Fewer than 80 remain in the wild today. To save them, we know we need to save their food source -- Chinook salmon.

    But since the construction of the Lower Snake River dams, the salmon population has dropped alarmingly. I urge you to bring breaching these dams to Congress in order to restore the salmon population that these orcas need to survive and thrive.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect birds from bright lights in the big city

    Dear Mayor Lightfoot,

    Recent studies have shown that Chicago is, in the words of the Chicago Tribune, "the most dangerous metropolitan area in the contiguous U.S. for migratory birds". Tens of thousands of birds die every year in your city because they collide with buildings, having been attracted by bright lights, like moths to a flame. Voluntary programs to reduce lighting have made only a small dent in the number of deaths. It's time now to take stronger action, by supporting the "Bird-Friendly Design Ordinance", now being considered by the City Council. If passed, Chicago will not only save many birds' lives in your city. It will be a shining example to the cities and towns throughout the country in which we live.

  • Tell your senators: Support the Stop Arctic Ocean Drilling Act of 2019

    Offshore drilling in any ocean is dangerous. But in the Arctic Ocean, where so many animals depend on the sea and ice cover, oil spills can be especially disastrous. The Arctic Ocean is home to invaluable and fragile ecosystems that are critical to whales, walruses, polar bears and more.

    Together, we can protect Arctic wildlife and put an end to drilling in the Arctic Ocean with the Stop Arctic Ocean Drilling Act of 2019.

  • No Mining Near Yellowstone

    The greater Yellowstone area, with the National Park at its heart, is one of the largest and most intact temperate ecosystems in the world. Its sprawling acres contain incredible wonders, from spectacular geysers to lush forests. In addition to its famous wolves, Yellowstone is home to rare wildlife that requires vast undisturbed habitats to thrive, like lynx and wolverines. Mining on Yellowstone's northern border would harm this delicate and irreplaceable ecosystem, changing it forever. I strongly urge you not to permit the Crevice Mountain Mine project.

  • Stop Mining Near the Boundary Waters

    This new legislation will stop mining and leasing from moving forward near the Boundary Waters, and require the completion of a vital environmental impact study. Send a message to your U.S. representative today urging them to support efforts to keep the Boundary Waters safe.

  • Act today to protect lions

    We need to do everything we can to preserve and enlarge lions' natural habitat, and create systems that encourage people to protect, not kill these creatures. Tell your representative to support the CECIL Act today.

  • Stop construction of this new nuclear power plant before it starts

    We need energy to power our lives, and we need to generate it in a way that won't throw fuel on the fire of climate change -- but nuclear energy is just too expensive and dangerous. The resources being used to construct nuclear plants would be much better spent developing energy solutions that won't pose a risk to the planet with harmful waste products and the threat of meltdown. I strongly urge you to halt the NuScale nuclear project in Idaho and invest in cleaner, safer renewables instead.

  • Tell your member of Congress: Make buildings bird-safe

  • Tell your governor: Follow in Maine's footsteps and ban polystyrene plastic foam now

  • It's time to take Roundup off the shelves

    Docket # EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0361

    The overuse of weed killers like Roundup is having dire effects on the natural world. Glyphosate kills the milkweed plants monarch butterflies need to survive. We pour millions of pounds of Roundup on lawns, parks, schools and other green spaces every year -- so it's no coincidence that some monarch butterfly populations are in staggering decline.

    Meanwhile, glyphosate has been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization. This substance is harmful to nature and humans alike. I strongly urge you not to permit the sale of glyphosate.

  • Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: Officially list African giraffes on the endangered species list

    Dear Acting Director Greg Sheehan,

    Not only has the population of African giraffes in the wild plummeted -- from at least 150,000 in 1985 to fewer than 98,000 in 2015 -- but their hooves, horns, skin and other parts are being imported into the United States and sold, legally.

    It's a tragedy to lose any creature. But to sacrifice these vulnerable giraffes to be turned into boots, rugs, book covers and other goods is unconscionable.

    I urge your agency to make the right decision and officially list giraffes on the endangered species list.

    Sincerely,

  • Put the Planet Over Plastic

    Plastic pollution doesn't belong in our oceans at all -- and it's alarming that scientists are finding it even in the deepest part of our ocean.

    The solution? We need to stop using plastics that end up in our oceans in the first place -- and one of the worst forms of this plastic pollution is plastic foam cups and containers.

    Put the planet over plastic: Call on your governor to ban plastic foam in your state now.

  • Tell Cargill to end its role in tropical deforestation and save the jaguar's home.

    Cargill CEO David W. MacLennan,

    Deforestation is on the rise in areas of Brazil that jaguars call home -- and where Cargill sources commodities like soy, which has been linked to deforestation.

    Jaguars are on the decline. To save them and other threatened species, we must protect their home -- the world's tropical forests.

    I urge you to strengthen Cargill's commitment to eliminate deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2020.

  • Tell the FWS: Protect Red Wolves

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service contributed to one of the most remarkable conservation victories of the last century in restoring red wolves to their natural habitat after their functional extinction in the wild. Today, with only a few dozen red wolves left, it's clear that management practices must return to the tried-and-true techniques that helped them recover the first time. I urge you to use the breadth of your experience and the best possible science in designing your final red wolf management plan.

    Sincerely,

  • Protect Oregon's Wolves

    The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is voting in early June on a new state wolf management plan -- but, as written, the plan will make it easier to kill wolves than coexist with them. Send a message before May 23 to urge the Commission to protect Oregon's wolves.

  • No Drilling in Nesting Sites

    Extracting oil and gas year-round is extremely dangerous for wildlife -- especially sensitive nesting birds. Seasonal protections for habitat are vital to the survival of the many raptor species that call the Converse County drilling project site home. I strongly urge you to keep seasonal restrictions in place.

  • Tell Procter and Gamble: Don't trade our trees for toilet paper

    Dear CEO David Taylor,

    Covering over a billion acres, Canada's boreal forest is the lungs of the northern hemisphere -- absorbing greenhouse gases and releasing oxygen back to the atmosphere. In fact, this boreal forest removes enough carbon dioxide yearly to offset the emissions of 24 million cars. The cascading green region is also home to billions of animals: from the lynx, to caribou, to migratory birds.

    But this forest is vanishing -- 1 million acres of trees are chopped down every year. And some of this deforestation is to create the virgin pulp used to make your household tissue products.

    We're literally trading trees for toilet paper -- and in today's world that doesn't make any sense, especially when less damaging alternatives exist, like recycled paper and wheat straw.

    I strongly urge you to use recycled paper in your Charmin, Bounty and other tissue brands in order to protect the boreal forest.

    Sincerely,

  • No Leasing in Wildlife Corridors

    Nearly one quarter of all new oil and gas leases issued by the BLM in the last two years have been within wildlife corridors or priority conservation areas. Wildlife corridors are for wildlife, not for oil and gas extraction. I oppose oil and gas leasing in these important protected habitats.

  • Take Action: Stop offshore drilling safety rollbacks

    Offshore drilling is dangerous: Nothing illustrated that more clearly than the Deepwater Horizon spill in 2010. The safety regulations put in place after the Deepwater Horizon disaster were created to prevent such a tragedy from happening again.

    We need to stop offshore drilling entirely. But meanwhile, rolling back safety requirements makes future major spills much more likely -- and that's a risk our oceans, and everything that lives in them, just can't afford. I strongly urge you to keep these vital offshore drilling safety regulations in place.

  • Give the Grand Canyon the gift of protection against any new mining projects

    Currently, the Grand Canyon and surrounding land are under the protection of a 20-year moratorium on new uranium mining sites. But in order to keep this place protected, it's critical that we make this ban permanent.

    The recently-introduced Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act would expand the current moratorium, and permanently prohibit new claims for mining on 1 million acres of public lands.

    Call on your U.S. representative to pass this legislation and permanently protect the land near the Grand Canyon from uranium mining right now.

  • Submit your public comment to protect Bristol Bay

    Breaking ground for a mine puts at risk the lush green landscape, beautiful blooming tundra and diverse wetlands around Bristol Bay. This is truly a special place -- Bristol Bay boasts wetlands, rivers and streams -- cascades of blue waters, swimming schools of red sockeye salmon, and bold green trees. The potential profit from gold and copper simply doesn't compare to the intrinsic value of the land, the water and the wildlife. I urge you to consider the full effects of the Pebble Mine Project for the region and to choose the No Action Alternative.

  • Investigate The "Accidental" Bird Killing Policy

    Dear Rep. Huffman,

    As the chair of the House Subcommittee on Waters, Oceans, and Wildlife, you have the power to investigate the reasons for the Fish and Wildlife Service's radical weakening of its policy for prosecuting companies and individuals responsible for "accidentally" killing birds protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

    We encourage you to open a full probe and hold hearings on the service's decision to say, as its guiding memo puts it, "A person who destroys a structure such as a barn knowing that it is full of baby owls in nests is not liable for killing them."

    Sincerely,

  • Protect Gray Wolves from Extinction

    Gray wolves are one of America's national treasures, vital to the ecosystems they call home. Wolves, once nearly driven extinct, are now slowly recovering under the protection of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). With as few as 5,500 left in the entire Lower 48, gray wolves can't afford to lose the ESA. I strongly urge you not to delist the gray wolf, so that these amazing animals can be assured a continued existence in our country.

  • Call on your legislators to ban offshore drilling to protect wildlife and our planet

    We've all seen the pictures of animals covered in oil, their fur or feathers or shell covered in the black and tarry substance. It's as bad as it looks for these animals. But the Trump administration is working hard to open more of our oceans up to dirty and dangerous offshore drilling as soon as possible. If we're going to stop these plans, we have to take action now.

  • Tell your governor: Make your state monarch-friendly

    One simple thing we can do for monarch butterflies is making sure they have the plants they need to survive. And with all the public land we have, we could create safe havens for monarchs -- before it's too late.

    Call on your governor to make your state monarch-friendly by growing native milkweed and the nectar plants monarchs need on our public lands.

  • Sign the Petition: Protect the Environment from Toxic Coal Ash

    President Trump and Acting EPA Administrator,

    We, the undersigned, strongly urge you to comply with the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia ruling requiring stronger regulations to prevent coal ash pollution. Coal ash contains arsenic, lead, mercury and other heavy metals, which can seep into local groundwater, increasing cancer risks in local communities, damaging people's organs and poisoning people and animals. To address this threat, we urge your administration to restore and fully implement the 2015 coal ash storage rule.

  • Tell the FWS: Protect Red Wolves

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service contributed to one of the most remarkable conservation victories of the last century in restoring red wolves to their natural habitat after their functional extinction in the wild. But after changes to FWS management strategies, that incredible success dissolved into near tragedy as wolf numbers dwindled away again. Today, with only a few dozen red wolves left, it's clear that management practices must return to the tried-and-true techniques that helped them recover the first time. I urge you to use the breadth of your experience and the best possible science in designing your final red wolf management plan.

    Sincerely,

  • Submit your comment to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Bureau of Land Management,

    The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a truly unique wild place that makes our planet amazing -- and the coastal plain is the biological heart of the refuge. This area is the home of polar bear dens, it's the calving ground for Porcupine caribou, and hundreds of thousands of migratory birds from all 50 states arrive there every year. Oil drilling would do irreversible damage to these and other wildlife populations. I urge you to adopt a "No action" alternative to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Pledge to say "no" to plastic straws for Skip the Straw Day

    Single use plastic products, like straws, pose a serious threat to the environment and to wildlife when they are discarded. The convenience of a plastic straw just isn't worth the harm to a sea turtle, shark or whale. Nothing we use for only a few minutes should go on to pollute the environment for centuries. I pledge to say "no" to plastic straws on this National Skip the Straw Day, February 22, 2019, and beyond.

  • Speak Up for Mexican Gray Wolves

    Senator,

    Your state is home to the rarest and most genetically distinct subspecies of wolf in North America. The unique and beautiful Mexican gray wolf has been the subject of conservation efforts for decades, but their recovery is still far from certain. With a record 17 wolf deaths in 2018, it's more important than ever that these irreplaceable animals remain protected in the year to come. I urge you to remember your responsibility to the wildlife that shares your home and do all you can to protect Mexican gray wolves.

    Sincerely,

  • Give monarch butterflies the proven protection of the Endangered Species Act

    We urge you to make the right decision and list monarch butterflies under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) on or before the listing due date this June.

    In the 1980s, about 4.5 million butterflies spent winter along the California coast. This year? By last count, there were only about 30,000. It's clear that monarch butterflies need action now. The Endangered Species Act has seen incredible success since it was established 46 years ago: 99 percent of the animals listed under the ESA are still with us today. Monarch butterflies need the proven protection that the ESA can provide.

  • Congress: We Want Cleaner Water!

    Speaker Pelosi and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Grijalva,

    We, the undersigned, care about clean water and strongly urge you to restore the 2015 Waters of the United States rule by act of Congress. The expanded protections in the rule would improve drinking water quality for roughly one in three Americans and protect our lakes, streams, and vital wildlife habitat from upstream pollution.

    Sincerely,

  • Show your love for the last remaining North Atlantic right whales

    Show your love for North Atlantic right whales this season, and get legislators to take notice.

    Send your legislators a postcard Valentine urging them to introduce or support the SAVE Right Whales Act -- our best chance to protect these whales and save them from extinction.

    Sign up here for instructions!

  • Call on your legislators to reintroduce and support the SAVE Right Whales Act

    On Dec. 28, 2018, whale watchers in Florida reported the arrival of the first right whale calf of this 2018-2019 birthing season. This little whale brings hope for the future, but we need to do all we can to make it a safe one. Act today to protect this new calf and save North Atlantic right whales from the brink of extinction.

  • Tell your governor to ban plastic polystyrene foam

    To protect turtles, whales and other ocean creatures, we need to do something about plastic pollution. Let's start by banning plastic polystyrene foam.

  • Reduce Amazon's packaging waste

    Call on Amazon to reduce the plastic in all their packaging.

  • Protect Polar Bears and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Senator Markey and Congressman Grijalva,

    We, the undersigned, strongly urge you to work together to introduce legislation in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives that would restore the federal prohibition on oil and gas leasing in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This special place is home to polar bears, the world-famous Porcupine caribou herd, and other irreplaceable wildlife and should not be sacrificed for the sake of more fossil fuels that contribute to climate change.

  • Say No to Mining Near the Boundary Waters

    The Boundary Waters Canoe Area is a pristine and irreplaceable ecosystem, and America's most visited wilderness. Mining poses unacceptable risks to the health of this special place -- any pollution that enters the interconnected waters will be impossible to contain or remove. The public lands on the outskirts of the Boundary Waters are no place for sulfide-ore copper mining. I oppose any mining activity that stands to damage the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

    Sincerely,

  • Act to save the last 411 North Atlantic right whales

    The administration has approved requests from five oil companies to use seismic airgun blasting in the North Atlantic Ocean. The deafening sound of these airguns is one of the major threats to the dwindling population of North Atlantic right whales.

    Take action before it's too late. Tell Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to protect the last remaining North Atlantic right whales by ending seismic blasting now.

  • Public Land Use Shouldn't Fuel Climate Change

    Speaker Pelosi and Committee Chairman Grijalva,

    We, the undersigned, support a moratorium on new fossil fuel development on our public lands. We are greatly concerned by the Trump administration's massive expansion of energy development on federal lands -- and its impact on climate change. From 2005 to 2014, nearly a quarter of U.S. emissions that contribute to climate change came from oil, coal, and other fossil fuels developed on the public lands we all own. Dirty drilling on America's public lands shouldn't be fueling the climate crisis. Please do all you can to protect these special places.

  • Urge Wyoming's Governor to End Wolf Hunts

    As nature-loving people who treasure Wyoming's amazing natural beauty and abundant wildlife, we, the undersigned, call on you to end wolf hunting in the state. Wolves aren't just important icons of the American West: They are vital to the health of the ecosystems they call home.

    We do not believe that Wyoming's current management plan accounts for wolves' important ecological benefits. The state's current management plan also does not provide sufficient assurances that wolves will not be hunted past the point of viability. For all these reasons -- and because we want our travel, tourism, and tax dollars to support gray wolves -- we urge you to end wolf hunting in the state of Wyoming.

    Sincerely,

  • Reject Trump's Outrageous Offshore Drilling Proposal

    Earlier this year, the Trump administration proposed opening up roughly 92 percent of U.S. waters off our coasts to dangerous offshore oil and gas drilling.

    We shouldn't industrialize our coasts for the sake of more dirty fossil fuels that contribute to climate change. These waters are home to whales, sea turtles, polar bears and other wildlife at risk of extinction and they are an important part of nature and our country's natural heritage.

    Urge your U.S. representative and senators to oppose the Trump administration's massive proposed expansion of oil and gas drilling in the waters off our coasts.

  • Tell Amazon to promote green shipping

    As one of the largest online retailers in the U.S., it's important for you to take the lead in establishing practices that are better for our planet.

    We know that some methods of shipping can have a smaller carbon footprint than customers shopping in stores! But when customers opt for Two-Day shipping, it can make their carbon footprint larger.

    There is one simple step you can take for our planet that would have a huge impact: alert consumers to the greener shipping option by writing "Go Green" before your standard shipping option. This can nudge shoppers toward choosing the greener shipping option, and help reduce emissions that contribute to climate change.

  • Will you help us save jaguars from losing their home?

    Help build on the momentum and get Cargill to take notice: Send them a letter with a jaguar asking Cargill to protect the jaguar’s home -- the world’s tropical forests -- by committing to zero deforestation in all of their supply chains by 2023.

    Sign up here for instructions!

  • Urge Your Governor to Oppose Offshore Drilling

    Climate change and other human-made threats are already accelerating the loss of entire species.

    Unfortunately, that isn't stopping the Trump administration from barreling ahead with plans to open 90 percent of federal waters to dangerous offshore drilling.

    Help protect imperiled polar bears, sea turtles, whales and other wildlife. Urge your state's governor to do everything in their power to stop the administration's massive proposed expansion of offshore drilling in federal waters.

  • Tell the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife: Stop Killing Wolf Families

    This winter, three Washington state wolf packs were slated for partial or complete elimination at once. This kind of management is not the right approach for these beautiful endangered animals, whose families should be allowed to thrive. Join us in calling on the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife director, Kelly Susewind, to stop authorizing the lethal removal of wolves in Washington state.

  • Climate Change Action -- Oppose Trump's Methane Pollution Rules Rollback

    RE: EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0483-0005

    ATTN: Acting Administrator Wheeler

    We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the administration's proposed rollback federal rules designed to reduce methane pollution and its warming effects on the atmosphere. In the short term, methane is more than 80 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than even carbon emissions. Please reinstate federal rules from the last administration that increased monitoring and recapture requirements to keep methane emissions from escaping into the open air, degrading air quality, and fueling climate change.

  • Gray Wolves Need Endangered Species Act Protection

    Gray wolves are not just beautiful animals, they're vital parts of the ecosystems in which they live. Far too often throughout America's history these unfairly maligned creatures have been shot, poisoned, and trapped to near-extinction.

    Gray wolves are recovering, but they need continued ESA protection if this trend is to continue and not reverse. Please join Environmental Action in calling on our senators to preserve the protection gray wolves need to thrive.

  • Urge Hilcorp Energy to Abandon Risky Arctic Drilling Plans

    Attn: Greg Lalicker - CEO,

    We, the undersigned, urge your company to walk away from the proposed Liberty Project. The project risks pristine beaches and denning habitat for threatened polar bears. It imperils unpolluted waters that bowhead whales and other wildlife need to survive. Short term profits simply aren't worth the long-term risks this project poses to our irreplaceable Arctic wildlife. Please do the right thing -- don't disrupt this wild place with dangerous drilling and artificial island construction.

  • Ask the FWS to show compassion to elephant families

    Dear U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's International Affairs Program,

    Baby elephants thrive in families -- called herds. But when a baby elephant's mother is killed, new research shows that an orphaned elephant likely won't get access to the resources it needs to live a full life.

    Hunting and poaching harm more than just the African elephants who are killed. Please show compassion for elephant families as you decide whether hunting permits are issued for African elephants.

    Sincerely,

  • Stand Up for Endangered Species

    Since 1970, human beings have eliminated more than half the world's wildlife species. Worse, climate change, plastic pollution, habitat loss, the illegal wildlife trade, and other factors threaten to accelerate those losses.

    For more than 45 years, the Endangered Species Act (ESA) has been one of the world's most powerful tools to save threatened and endangered species from extinction.

    We should be strengthening the ESA -- not limiting its protections. Nonetheless, some in Congress and the Trump administration seem determined to weaken key protections for wildlife and habitat in the Endangered Species Act.

    Help save threatened and endangered species from extinction. Tell your U.S. representative and senators to oppose efforts that would limit the ESA's protections for threatened and endangered wildlife.

  • Join us in thanking the judge who saved red wolves:

    Chief Judge Terrence W. Boyle,

    Thank you for ruling in favor of North Carolina's wonderful wild red wolves. This irreplaceable population was put in terrible danger by the Fish and Wildlife Services' proposed management plan. It is thanks to you that these magnificent creatures have a new lease on life, and a real chance at avoiding extinction. Your support of wildlife means a lot to me, and to the thousands of other nature lovers who spoke up on the red wolves' behalf earlier this year.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell Cargill to end its role in tropical deforestation and save the jaguar's home.

    Cargill CEO David W. MacLennan,

    Deforestation is on the rise in areas of Brazil that jaguars call home -- and where Cargill sources commodities like soy, which has been linked to deforestation.

    Jaguars are on the decline. To save them and other threatened species, we must protect their home -- the world's tropical forests.

    I urge you to strengthen Cargill's commitment to eliminate deforestation in all of its supply chains by 2020.

    Sincerely,

  • Sign the Petition -- Oppose the Pro-Pollution Mercury Power Plant Proposal

    Administrator Wheeler,

    We, the undersigned, oppose the administration’s proposed changes to mercury emissions standards for power plants (EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0355-21117). Mercury is a neurotoxin, and we believe that these changes will dramatically increase its impact on human health, wildlife, and the environment. Worse, the proposal would also mean that the US burns even more fossil fuels that contribute to the climate change crisis

  • There's no time to waste -- Call on Kroger to take steps to address food waste.

    Dear Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen,

    Kroger's public commitment to eliminating food waste by 2025 is an important first step to dealing with our country's food waste problem.

    We'd like to remind Kroger of its commitment, and urge you to: 1) Provide transparent data and reporting on how much of Kroger's food ends up in landfills each year. 2) Implement comprehensive initiatives to manage waste in Kroger's supply chain. 3) Implement Kroger's imperfect produce program at all of your stores nationwide.

    Sincerely,

  • Speak Out for Giraffes

    We, the undersigned, urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect giraffes under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Wild giraffe numbers have plummeted, decreasing from at least 150,000 in 1985 to fewer than 98,000 in 2015. That's a massive, unsustainable decline -- and it's made worse by a grisly trade of giraffe body parts. Listing giraffes under the ESA would end the unpermitted importing of giraffe parts and encourage other countries to ban giraffe trophy imports too.

  • No Mining Near Boundary Waters

    The Boundary Waters, America's most visited wilderness, is an irreplaceable, pristine ecosystem. Sulfide-ore copper mining poses unacceptable risks to the health of this special place. The public lands on the outskirts of the Boundary Waters are no place for this dangerous activity. I oppose any mining activity that stands to damage the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

    We, the undersigned, strongly urge the US House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources to hold hearings on -- and ultimately vote in support of -- H.R. 5690, The Prohibiting Threatened and Endangered Creature Trophies (ProTECT) Act. African elephants are disappearing from the wild, and this bill will discourage poachers and US trophy hunters from killing animals for souvenirs.

  • Demand Cleaner Cars and Climate Action

    Acting Administrator Wheeler,

    We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the The Safer Affordable Fuel Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Proposed Rule for Model Years 2021-2026 (EPA-HQ-OAR-2018-0283). The rule is a significant, needless, and potentially dangerous delay in global carbon emission reduction efforts. The United States should be speeding away from fossil fuels that fuel destructive, disruptive and costly climate change -- not encouraging Americans to use more fossil fuels.

    Sincerely,

  • Speak Out for Clean Air and Action on Climate Change

    Acting Director Wheeler,

    We, the undersigned, strongly object to the regulatory revisions proposed in the Affordable Clean Energy rule (Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0355). The proposed rule would delay meaningful action to address climate change or reduce carbon, soot, and other harmful pollutants in our air and could result in as many as 1,400 more early deaths in the US each year.

    Sincerely,

    Gray wolves are an irreplaceable part of the American landscape and a critical component of balanced, healthy ecosystems in their natural range. If they are to survive, wolf populations and their habitat are still in need of Endangered Species Act protections. I strongly urge you and your administration not to erase protections for gray wolves, and to ensure the continued existence of this amazing wildlife.

  • Tell Chipotle to ditch the plastic straws, please.

    Dear Brian Niccol, CEO of Chipotle Mexican Grill,

    As you probably know, Starbucks and many other restaurants have decided to stop providing plastic straws and utensils. We appreciate that Chipotle typically does not automatically hand those items to its customers, but puts them in bins and containers to be picked up. However, it's time to eliminate the temptation. We ask you to rapidly phase out the use of plastic straws in your stores, with exceptions for disabled people who have no viable alternatives. It's one small, but important step toward a cleaner, healthier environment for wildlife and humans alike.

  • USFWS: Make the right decision and list monarch butterflies as an endangered species

    We urge you to make the right decision and list monarch butterflies under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

    The ESA has seen incredible success since it was established 45 years ago: 99 percent of the animals listed under the ESA haven't seen extinction. Meanwhile, monarch butterflies have seen alarming population declines -- since 1990, nearly 1 billion of these butterflies have vanished. And they continue to face threats to their survival. Monarch butterflies need the proven protection that the Endangered Species Act can provide.

  • Urge Congress to Pass the SAVE Right Whales Act of 2018

    With fewer than 450 North Atlantic right whales left in the entire world, things aren't looking good for these beloved marine mammals.

    The SAVE Right Whales Act of 2018 would provide vital funding to reduce whale-ship collisions and fishing gear entanglements, the two leading causes of human-related right whale injuries and death.

    Help save the whales from extinction! Urge your US senators to co-sponsor this important legislation.

  • Tell President Trump: No Mining Pollution in the Boundary Waters!

    President Trump,

    I strongly oppose the renewal of mining leases in the Boundary Waters Watershed. Potential sulfide mining risks the area's complex and irreplaceable ecosystems, along with its native wildlife, clean water and recreational value.

  • Tell Your Senator: Vote "No" On Anti-environmental Riders

    Clean water, clean air and wildlife will take a beating under a federal spending bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Any minute, the Senate could vote on their version of this must-pass legislation. Together, we can work to stop these anti-environmental provisions in their tracks.

  • Say no to mining in Grand Staircase-Escalante

    The Grand Staircase-Escalante area is one of our nation's most breathtaking landscapes. It was originally designated a national monument in order to protect its unique geography, endangered wildlife, and priceless fossil deposits. Copper mining and other extractive uses of Grand Staircase-Escalante will irreparably damage this special place. I stand against destructive mining in the Grand Staircase-Escalante area.

  • One way we can protect elephants at risk

    We have the chance to act to ban imports of endangered animal "trophies" for good. Send a message to your legislators asking them to support the Prohibiting Threatened and Endangered Creature Trophies (ProTECT) Act today.

  • Defend red wolves from extinction

    Red wolves are among the rarest and most vulnerable species of wildlife in America. With only approximately 35 wild individuals remaining, they need protection from hunting wherever they roam as a key component of their management. I urge you to re-evaluate the proposed 10(j) rule and ensure that red wolves retain their protections on private land to prevent these irreplaceable animals from being hunted to extinction.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell New EPA Head: Time to Undo Pruitt's Damage

    After a year of scandal, failed leadership, and unrelenting attacks on the environment he was supposed to protect, Scott Pruitt is finally out as EPA Administrator. But getting rid of Pruitt won't undo the damage he's already done -- and it's up to the new EPA leadership to get the agency back on track.

    The next EPA Administrator has the chance -- and the responsibility -- to reverse course on Pruitt's disastrous record of rolling back key environmental protections. We need to make our voices heard and demand that the EPA return to its mission of keeping our air, water, wildlife and wild places safe from development and pollution.

    Will you share your environmental priorities with the new EPA Administrator?

  • Reject Dirty Drilling Near Great Sand Dunes National Park

    ATTN: Brian Steed, Acting Director, Bureau of Land Management

    We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the Administration's proposal to open around 18,000 acres of land near Great Sand Dunes National Park and the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness Area. Such operations pose an unacceptable risk to irreplaceable public lands that are ecologically and culturally important.

  • Ban harmful plastic foam

    From coffee cups to fast food containers, polystyrene foam is used every day all across the country. And this plastic foam often ends up in our rivers, lakes and oceans, polluting our water, and risking our health and wildlife. It's time to act to reduce and rid our planet of plastic pollution. I support a ban on polystyrene foam.

  • Join the call for a statewide ban on dicamba

    Monsanto's herbicide dicamba doesn't stay where it's sprayed. It gets into the air and drifts, devastating plants it wasn't intended for, and risking the biodiversity that makes our planet great. In 2017, dicamba cut a path of destruction across millions of acres of farmland, and researchers expect twice as much dicamba to be sprayed in 2018. Tell your governor to ban dicamba before it can do any more damage.

  • Tell Alaska Governor Bill Walker: Keep the Tongass National Forest wild

    Gov. Walker,

    I urge you to withdraw the State of Alaska's petition for rulemaking to exempt the Tongass National Forest from the Roadless Area Conservation Rule. The Tongass is a place of irreplaceable natural beauty, and should be protected, not sacrificed for more logging and development.

  • Say No To Pebble Project And Protect Bristol Bay

    Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,

    Boasting one of the largest wild salmon populations in the world, Bristol Bay watershed is home to 29 types of fish, more than 190 bird species, and more than 40 kinds of land animals. The area is a source of unspoiled beauty in the arctic.

    But the Pebble Mine proposal would fundamentally change this beautiful place -- risking its lush green landscape, diverse wetlands, and unique creatures that call this artic bay home. I strongly urge you to reject this proposal and keep Bristol Bay a pristine and special place.

    Sincerely,

  • Join us

  • Tell McDonald's: Hold The Plastic Straws, Please

    Dear Mr. Steve Easterbrook, CEO of McDonald's,

    We applaud your decision to ban the distribution of plastic straws at McDonald's stores in the United Kingdom. We ask you to make the same choice in the U.S.A. It's one small, but important step towards a cleaner, healthier environment for wildlife and humans alike.

  • Tell EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt: Science matters for our planet and our health

    EPA-HQ-OA-2018-0259; FRL-9977-40-ORD

    The EPA should be able to make the most informed decisions that it can for our planet and our health, But this new rule would limit the EPA's access to the best available scientific information. These restrictions would make it harder for the EPA to protect our planet and our health from air pollution, drinking water pollution and more. I strongly urge you to reject this rule.

  • Speak Out for Carrizo Plain National Monument

    E&B President Steve Layton,

    We, the undersigned, strongly urge you to abandon your company's plans for a new drill and small pipeline in Carrizo Plain National Monument. Special places like this should be protected for their beauty and importance to wildlife -- not drilled for the sake of short-term profits.

  • Tell the U.S. Department of Agriculture: Keep the Tongass National Forest wild

    U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue,

    I urge you to reject the State of Alaska's petition for rulemaking to exempt the Tongass National Forest from the Roadless Area Conservation Rule. The Tongass is a place of irreplaceable natural beauty, and should be protected, not sacrificed for more logging and development.

  • Protect the Arctic Refuge

    The Arctic is already seeing and feeling the effects of climate change. Polar bears, caribou and hundreds of species of migratory birds depend on the natural habitat the Arctic Refuge offers -- we can't afford to put their and our environment at risk of irreversible pollution.

    Oil and gas production would disrupt wildlife in the region and lead to devastating oil spills that negatively impact wildlife, water and climate. Please protect the Arctic Wildlife Refuge.

  • Tell the Trump Administration: No Drilling in Carrizo

    US Bureau of Land Management California State Director Jerome Perez,

    We, the undersigned, strongly urge you to reverse your approval of a new oil platform and pipeline in Carrizo National Monument. This special place, its wildlife, and its natural beauty should be protected, not sacrificed for the sake of more destructive oil and gas drilling.

  • Tell Your Governor: Ban Polystyrene Foam

    Whales and other wildlife should not have their lives put at risk from our garbage.

  • Tell Speaker Paul Ryan: Clean up the Great Lakes

    To Paul Ryan, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives:

    Thank you for allowing the full funding of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative for Fiscal Year 2018. Those tax dollars are well spent in making each of the lakes safer for people and wildlife. We encourage you to continue to fully support the cleanup effort and oppose the Trump Administration's proposal to cut those restoration funds by 90% in Fiscal Year 2019.

  • Tell Oil & Gas Drillers: Keep Birds Out Of The Pits

    To the U.S. Oil & Gas Association:

    Millions of birds die needlessly at oil and gas drilling sites, especially in fluid-filled waste pits. Inexpensive technology is readily available to prevent birds from getting into those pits. We encourage you to pledge to reduce bird deaths by 50% by 2020.

  • Sign the Petition for Leatherback Sea Turtles

    National Marine Fisheries Service Assistant Administrator Chris Oliver,

    I oppose efforts to downlist Atlantic leatherback sea turtles under the Endangered Species Act. Atlantic leatherback turtle numbers may be up recently, but the global population of these ancient and endangered sea turtles is still in deep trouble.

  • Tell Zinke to put protections in place against methane pollution!

    The Trump administration is once again making moves to repeal the rule restricting methane emissions that accelerate climate change.

    The rule would require oil and gas companies to capture methane leaks, which would reduce 180,000 tons of the emissions per year (equal to eliminating 950,000 cars on roads).

    The Bureau of Land Management is taking comments on their plan to eliminate important protections against methane pollution. Together, we defeated this toxic plan before and together we can defeat it again.

    Take action, then spread the word with your friends and family: Tell Secretary Ryan Zinke to limit methane pollution!

  • Protect Monarchs, not Monsanto's Roundup.

    Acting BLM Director Brian Steed,

    We, the undersigned, oppose any management plan that industrializes the lands protected within Bears Ears National Monument prior to November 2017. Great wild places belong to all of us -- not just oil, mining, logging and real estate interests. We urge your agency to protect the area's irreplaceable geologic features, dazzling wildlife, and irreplaceable cultural artifacts.

  • Tell Amazon: Sell Live Milkweed Plants To Turn Gardens Into Monarch Sanctuaries

    Businesses like Amazon can make it easy for everyday people to make their gardens monarch sanctuaries -- simply by selling more of the flower monarchs need to survive.

    Tell Amazon to sell milkweed plants in their live plant store now, to help bring monarchs back from the brink.

  • Say NO to Monsanto: Tell your governor to ban dicamba in your state.

    Monsanto's newest herbicide system, dicamba, is volatile -- drifting far beyond the crops on which it's originally sprayed. This devastates plants that the herbicide wasn't intended for, and risks the biodiversity that makes our planet great. Say no to Monsanto. Tell your governor to ban drifting dicamba.

  • EPA: Ban Bee-Killing Pesticides

    Docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0844, EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-0865, EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-058, and EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-0920

    Just last year, our country listed the rusty patched bumble bee as endangered -- they've lost 87 percent of their population over that last 20 years. Each of the four listed neonicotinoid pesticides are highly toxic to rusty patched bumble bees. These bumblebees and other native insects contribute an estimated $3 billion to our economy through pollination, and both their absence and the impact of these pesticides on our ecosystems can have a significant negative impact on the survival of other wildlife -- from birds to amphibians.

    I urge you to ban the use of these pesticides, for the sake of the rusty patched bumble bee, other wildlife, and our environment.

  • Thank Your Senator For Standing With Wolves

    Wolves and other endangered species are on the chopping block -- again.

    The Senate is poised to sneak anti-wildlife policies into a must-pass spending bill this month, including one that would open the door to trophy hunting of gray wolves around the Great Lakes.

    We can't stay silent as the Senate prepares to erase the very protections that brought wolves back from the brink - and we only have until March 23rd to make our voices heard.

  • Tell Your Senator: Wolves Are Wild, Wonderful, and Worth Saving

We urge your agency to protect the area's irreplaceable geologic features, dazzling wildlife, and irreplaceable cultural artifacts.

  • Tell President Trump: African elephants are worth saving

    We need to do everything we can to preserve and enlarge African elephants' natural habitat, and create systems that encourage people to protect, not poach these creatures. To get there, we need to stop incentivizing hunting. We need to keep the ban on bringing back "trophies" from killing these vulnerable animals.

    With enough public outcry, we know we can win on this again -- it's how we got the ban in the first place, and how we brought the ban back in November. Tell Pres. Trump that elephants are worth saving.

  • Tell Congress to Fully Fund the EPA

    President Donald Trump's new 2019 budget request would slash EPA funding by nearly a quarter.

    These devastating cuts would compromise the ability an already-underfunded EPA to keep our air and water clean. It would mean less monitoring of pollution sources, fewer polluter prosecutions, delayed cleanups and an overall reduction of staff and resources.

    Our health and environment depend on a fully-funded EPA. Please send a message to your US Representative and Senators now.

  • Tell Your Representative: No Cuts To Great Lakes Restoration Funding

    Federal funding has made the Great Lakes more swimmable, fishable, and drinkable. But Congress is now considering the Trump Administration's proposal to cut that funding by 90 percent.

    Public outrage stopped a more drastic proposal last year. But we need to send a message to Congress to stop it again this time.

  • Don't let the energy industry off the hook for "accidentally" killing birds

    Dear Secretary Zinke,

    I join with 17 distinguished former national wildlife officials, who served Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama, in asking you to reject the "solicitor's opinion" issued by the Interior Department's new deputy solicitor, in which he announced that he would not seek to prosecute energy companies who "accidentally", but avoidably, kill millions of birds each year. We encourage you to return to the long-standing practice of following the Migratory Bird Treaty Act's definition of "take" to include prosecution of bird deaths that are the result of negligence.

  • Keep Marine Mammal Rescue Funds

    Pres. Trump wants to gut the funding for marine mammal rescue assistance -- meaning there will not be a federal program for rescuing, rehabilitating or investigating sick or injured marine mammals.

    We can stop this cut to important funds in the Senate. But we need to speak out to make sure our senators act.

  • Protect Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument

    I oppose the expansion of commercial fishing or oil and gas drilling in Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. This place -- and its imperiled sea turtles, corals and whales -- should be protected from irresponsible exploitation and development.

  • Protect the Rusty Patched Bumble Bee: Ban bee-killing pesticides in your state

    We need to do our part to help keep rusty patched bumble bees around. Tell your governor: Ban bee-killing pesticides.

  • Protect the Boundary Waters!

    Sign here to help work towards permanent protection for the Boundary Waters and demand the U.S. Forest Service to prepare a full comprehensive study to the disastrous impacts of introducing toxic sulfide-ore copper mining on the edge of America’s most visited Wilderness.

    The monarch butterfly is an amazing species and is also a very important part of our ecosystem. We stand with communities in Mexico, and across the world, to end illegal logging in the reserve.

    La mariposa monarca es una de las especies de insecto más hermosas, también un parte muy importante de nuestro ecosistema. Apoyamos a las comunidades de México y alrededor del mundo para detener la tala ilegal de árboles en la reserva.

  • Speak Out for Organ Mountains-Desert Peak

    We, the undersigned, strongly oppose efforts to expand grazing, mining, and other destructive development on the lands contained within New Mexico's Organ Mountains-Desert Peak National Monument.

    This monument boasts one-of-a-kind natural beauty and picturesque vistas of the undisturbed desert sky. It contains thousands of archaeological sites. Mountain lion, foxes, desert mule deer and javelina all roam the wilds of the monument, living undisturbed by the nearby and rapidly expanding city of Las Cruces.

    Organ Mountains-Desert Peak National Monument is not the kind of place that can be improved with more destructive mining, grazing and development. We stand together for its protection.

  • Protect North Atlantic Right Whales from Deadly Entanglements

    North Atlantic right whales could be extinct in the wild by 2040 -- and the two leading reasons for human-caused North Atlantic right whale deaths are ship strikes and entanglement in fishing gear.

    The US government has lowered permitted vessel speeds to reduce ship strikes. But to save these whales we have to prevent deadly fishing entanglements too.

    Your signature today will help convince the National Marine Fisheries Service to take immediate action to reduce fishing gear entanglements by reducing the allowed break-limit on fishing gear. That way, North Atlantic right whales can better free themselves from potentially fatal entanglements.

    These rare whales are on a collision course with extinction. Please sign our petition to the National Marine Fisheries Service now.

  • Tell The Trump Administration: Don't Open Our Oceans To More Drilling

    Re: Docket No: BOEM-2017-0074

    We oppose BOEM's Draft Proposed Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program. Increasing drilling in our coastal waters comes with the inherent risk of more oil spills which not only endanger the livelihoods of coastal communities, but damage the ocean ecosystem and risk the lives of ocean wildlife.

    It is not in the best interest of our country or our planet to risk coastal communities, sea animals and the ocean ecosystem for a little bit more oil, especially given that we have the technology to power our country from renewable sources. We urge you to reject this draft proposal and keep the oil where it belongs: in the ground.

  • Tell Congress: No animal should be hunted to extinction so that someone can have a trophy on their wall.

    Both the House and Senate are poised to strip Endangered Species Act protections from gray wolves around the Great Lakes. This would be a devastating step backwards, opening the door to trophy hunting, state-sponsored hunting to reduce wolf populations, and more. Tell your legislators: Wolves are treasures, not hunting trophies.

  • Tell Amazon to PROMOTE GREEN SHIPPING

    It's a simple step that could have a huge impact: tell Amazon to promote green shipping by adding "Go Green" to their standard shipping option now.

  • Tell California to Retire the Monster Drift Nets

    Drift nets can be 100 feet tall and a mile wide -- and they they indiscriminately entangle, injure and even kill some of our most beloved ocean creatures. Their use has largely been banned along the West Coast, but is still allowed in some California waters for swordfishing and hauling in thresher sharks.

    Since 1991, these "monster nets" have killed tens of thousands of sharks, hundreds of dolphins and sea lions and more than imperiled 380 whales and 100 threatened or endangered sea turtles -- and it's time to retire this dangerous fishing gear for good.

    Urge your California senators to support California Senate Bill 1114, new legislation that would stop the state from issuing new drift net permits and encourage fishing vessels to use technology that reduces the number of sea creatures unintentionally killed by swordfishing.

    Help save the lives of whales, sea turtles, and other imperiled wildlife. Add your name now.

  • Trump Administration: Keep safety regulations for offshore drilling

    Docket ID: BSEE-2017-0008

    189E1700D2 ET1SF0000.PSB000 EEEE500000

    Offshore drilling is inherently dangerous, and the safety regulations under consideration were created to prevent another disaster like Deepwater Horizon in 2010.

    Getting rid of these rules risks another major spill, which puts the animals that live in our oceans at risk -- everything from hypothermia in seals, to damaging the internal organs of sea otters, to causing reproductive harm in orcas.

    Do not overhaul these important safety regulations for offshore drilling.

  • Wolves Need Protection, Not Politics

    There are just over 100 Mexican gray wolves living in the wild -- but Sen. Jeff Flake just introduced legislation to erase their Endangered Species Act protections.

    That would be a devastating step backwards, opening the door to hunting, trapping and habitat loss. Mexican gray wolves are already targeted by poachers, and their population is too small to be sustainable without continued protections.

    Tell your senators: Don't push Mexican gray wolves over the brink.

  • Protect the Clean Power Plan: No rollbacks on clean power and climate change!

    I am writing to urge you to protect the Clean Power Plan. This plan is a key part of our country's efforts to curb the disastrous effects of climate change, and will help protect our country's air, water and health. I oppose all efforts to weaken, roll back or dismantle the Clean Power Plan. I urge you to protect and strengthen the Clean Power Plan for the future of our families, our health.

  • Oppose Commercial Logging in Maine's Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument

    Maine's Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument is home to rare lynx, bears, moose and birds like gray jays, boreal chickadees and the American three-toed woodpecker. It's exactly the type of place we should be protecting, not logging for private profit.

    Unfortunately, the Trump administration has called for "active timber management" of this area, raising the spectre of destructive new commercial logging in the state's wild North Woods.

    Urge the National Park Service to deny any new permitting for commercial timber operations in Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.

  • Stand Up for Our Public Lands

    As Trump moves forward with rolling back protections for our public lands, like the breathtaking Grand Staircase-Escalante, we have to keep fighting. Tell Trump what you think about this move.

  • Tell Amazon to PROMOTE GREEN SHIPPING

    It's a simple step that could have a huge impact: tell Amazon to promote green shipping by adding "Go Green" to their standard shipping option now.

  • Urge Wyoming's Governor to Stop the Wolf Hunt

    Governor Mead,

    As nature-loving people who treasure Wyoming's amazing natural beauty and abundant wildlife, we, the undersigned, call on you to end wolf hunting in the state.

    Wolves aren't just important icons of the American West. They are are an important part of healthy ecosystems.

    For example, ecosystems in Yellowstone that had be degraded by overgrazing recovered with the reintroduction of gray wolves to the area. The result: healthier riparian areas and important habitat for the birds, fish, and other wildlife near the area's rivers and streams.

    We do not believe that the state's current management plan accounts for these important ecological benefits. We also do not believe that the state's current management plan provides sufficient assurances that wolves will not be hunted past the point of viability.

    For all these reasons -- and because we want our travel, tourism, and tax dollars to support gray wolves -- we urge you to end wolf hunting in the state of Wyoming.

    Sincerely,

  • Say No To Grand Canyon Uranium Mining

    The Trump administration has just announced plans to mine more uranium -- and they want to do it right in the Grand Canyon watershed.

    Uranium mining is incredibly destructive, leaving a legacy of toxic waste, polluted waterways and displaced communities, all for the sake of incredibly dangerous nuclear weapons and power. And downstream from the proposed mining, the Colorado River supplies drinking water to tens of millions of people.

    Tell President Trump: The Grand Canyon is no place for dangerous uranium mining.

  • Tell Your Representative: Protect endangered right whales. Vote NO on SECURE American Energy Act

    North Atlantic right whales are among the thousands of marine animals that are at risk from seismic blasting -- the process of using immensely loud airguns to test for offshore drilling sites.

    The SECURE American Energy Act, currently in the House of Representatives, would expand seismic blasting.

    North Atlantic right whales are already at risk -- this legislation would make their survival significantly less likely.

    Tell your representatives to vote NO.

  • Tell Governor Brown: No More State-Funded Wolf Killing

    Four wolves from the Harl Butte pack of Oregon have already been killed this year. There are barely 100 wolves in the entire state, and ranchers have asked for the rest of the pack to be killed off.

    Governor Brown inherited this policy from her predecessor, but it isn't too late for her to stop it.

    We all own our country's spectacular National Parks -- from the majestic geysers of Yellowstone, to the lush forests of Yosemite, the towering mountains of Denali, and the Grand Canyon's sweeping vistas.

    Unfortunately, the Trump administration has just proposed a big new fee hike for entering these and 13 other popular National Parks. Worse, we only have until November 23rd to stop them.

    Being able to get out and enjoy nature is a vital part of appreciating and protecting America's natural treasures. Doubling the entry price over such a short period is out of step with the idea that we should be encouraging more people to experience these wonders.

    Your signature today can stop these fee hikes and ensure more people can enjoy our national parks. The National Park Service is only accepting comments on its fee hike proposal until November 23, so please sign the petition now.

  • STOP NEW OFFSHORE DRILLING

    Interior Secretary Zinke just announced that 76 million acres of federal waters will be up for lease this spring, in the largest offshore drilling initiative in U.S. history.

    It's inevitable: More offshore drilling leads to more oil spills, more spills harm our coasts and the animals, from sea turtles to dolphins, that live in our oceans.

    Unless we stop it now.

  • Stop the Methane Delay

    Methane is 30 times more potent than C02 and is a major contributor to climate change. That’s why the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management issued the methane emissions rule last year to reduce these emissions that worsen climate change.

    But Ryan Zinke wants to delay this rule, and is even considering weakening or rescinding these important protections for our climate and planet.

    The comment period is ending on Nov. 6. The time to act is NOW: tell Zinke not to delay this important rule.

  • Tell Congress: No animal should be hunted to extinction so that someone can have a trophy on their wall.

    Both the House and Senate are poised to strip Endangered Species Act protections from gray wolves around the Great Lakes. This would be a devastating step backwards, opening the door to trophy hunting, state-sponsored hunting to reduce wolf populations, and more. Tell your legislators: Wolves are treasures, not hunting trophies.

  • Will you be a messenger for monarchs?

    Monarch butterflies are disappearing from the American West -- but we can save them.

    From the products it sells to the care tips it offers to customers, your local garden store can play an important role in ensuring that these beautiful butterflies are around for future generations. That's why Environmental Action has put together a short series of questions you can your local store to encourage them to adopt monarch-friendly practices.

  • Tell Your Senators to Fully Fund the EPA

    The US House of Representatives just voted to slash more than a half a billion dollars from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) budget.

    If approved by the Senate, the cuts could leave the agency short on vital resources to protect our air, water, wildlife and wild places -- even as the EPA works to make sure Americans in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico have clean air, clean water and safe food in the wake of the recent hurricanes.

    So far, caring people like you have stopped even more significant EPA budget cuts proposed by the Trump administration. Will you help stop these cuts too?

    Add your name to this petition and a message will be sent to your US senators urging them to fully fund the EPA and its vital work to protect our health and the environment.

  • Tell Gov. Brown: No more state-funded killing of wolves.

    Four wolves from the Harl Butte pack of Oregon have already been killed this year. There are barely 100 wolves in the entire state, and ranchers have asked for the rest of the pack to be killed off.

    Governor Brown inherited this policy from her predecessor, but it isn’t too late for her to stop it.

  • Saturday, September 30th is National Public Lands Day

    Get out on Saturday, September 30th and enjoy a fee free day at National Parks, Forests and America’s other great public lands. Over a quarter of our nation’s lands are held in public trust as a gift to every American -- whether rancher, hunter, hiker, mountain biker, or city dweller. Make your visit on the 30th a testament to your love for these sacred places.

    Our public lands are in the crosshairs of the new administration. National Monument reviews, plans for expanding coal mines into roadless areas, proposed copper mines in Wilderness watersheds -- every day there is something new we must fight for. But we also must renew our spirit.

    Is there a place that is sacred to you? Acadia National Park, White River National Forest or the Statue of Liberty National Monument? Whatever the place, take some time to enjoy it on September 30th -- and consider giving back by joining the largest single volunteer day for public lands.

    Over 200,000 nature lovers volunteered at last year’s 2,600 National Public Lands Day events, donating $18 million dollars in improvements to our public lands.

    Whether you choose to stroll down a trail or roll up your sleeves and volunteer -- be sure to visit one of America’s treasures on September 30th. Our public lands need you to fight for them, but save the 30th for enjoying them.

    Don’t forget to invite your friends and family and please share your experience on social media with the #NPLD hashtag!

  • Save Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument

    Cascade-Siskiyou is is home to some of the last intact forests in America’s Pacific Northwest and a dazzling array of wildlife and natural beauty. Can you help save it?

    This stunning area along the Oregon-California border is also one of four national monuments that the Trump administration is planning to shrink following its unprecedented review of 27 national monuments and national marine monuments, according to several media reports. The administration’s stated goal for the review: to open more areas on our public lands to mining, oil and gas drilling, logging, and other destructive development.

    If Cascade-Siskiyou loses protections, the scent of wildflowers could give way to exhaust fumes from logging trucks. Oil and gas rigs could mar the area’s gorgeous views. Wildlife habitat could be sacrificed for new roads and other development. And mining waste could poison Cascade-Siskiyou’s unpolluted stream and creeks.

    Oregon’s governor, attorney general, US senators, and other leaders are opposing efforts to reduce protections for this special place, but they need our help.

    Add your name to Environmental Action’s letter of support for Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument now and make sure these public lands champions can demonstrate the broad public support they will need to protect this special place.

  • Stop Seismic Blasts #SaveTheWhales

    Imagine for a moment if your home was assaulted with an insanely loud blast, louder than 10 jet engines, every 10 seconds. All day, all night, for days to months on end. This is actually a heartbreaking reality for whales and other marine life as Big Oil does its dirty business off our pristine coasts using seismic air blasts to search for oil and gas deposits beneath the seafloor.

    Seismic testing for oil creates what biologists call an "acoustic smog" that drowns out whale chatter and interferes with the way marine mammals perceive the world. Over time, animals that rely on sonar and listening to 'see' can go blind and can't function properly. For animals like whales and dolphins that use sound to eat, hunt, find mates, navigate and communicate with their young families, these sonic booms could be a death sentence.

    The Interior Department announced it is planning on moving forward with seismic surveys in the Atlantic Ocean following President Donald Trump's executive order to expand offshore drilling in protected areas in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans.

    The noise of these blasts is so loud that it can be heard up to 2,500 miles from the source – to put in perspective, that is about the distance from Los Angeles, CA, to Washington, DC! And it's not just sealife upset about this, more than 120 East Coast municipalities that formally oppose offshore drilling and/or seismic airgun blasting. Sign the petition to press the mute button on seismic blasts before it's too late!
