Current Actions

  • 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

    Months ago news broke that an oil rig has been leaking oil into the Gulf of Mexico for the past 14 years. Now, a new study estimates that the rig is leaking 4,500 gallons of oil a day -- not the two to four gallons that the owner claimed.

    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.

  • 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 invades 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

    As many as a billion birds die each year by colliding with buildings, often because they didn't realize the sky and clouds before them were reflections from a thick pane of glass.

    If passed, the bipartisan Bird-Safe Buildings Act (H.R. 919) will save millions of birds, by requiring new and retrofitted federal government buildings to use the best available technology. Send a message to your U.S. representative, asking her or him to support H.R.919 when it comes up for a vote in the months ahead.

  • 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.

    Sincerely,

  • 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.

    Sincerely,

  • Act today to protect lions

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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,

  • 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,

  • Speak Out Against Coal Ash Waste

    President Trump and Acting EPA Director Wheeler,

    We, the undersigned, strongly urge your administration to restore and fully implement the 2015 coal ash storage rule. 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. For the sake of local communities and nature, please restore the 2015 coal ash storage rule.

  • USFWS: Keep Wildlife Refuges a refuge for bees, too!

    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.

    Sincerely,

  • 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.

    Sincerely,

  • Tell President Trump: Gray wolves need Endangered Species Act Protection

  • 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

    The Grand Canyon is one of the most incredible sites on Earth. It holds a special place in our heritage and our national identity, and it deserves our protection.

    I urge you to keep this natural wonder safe for future generations. Please uphold the 20-year moratorium on uranium mining on the public lands surrounding Grand Canyon National Park, and make those protections permanent.

    Sincerely,

  • Join Environmental Action

    Get urgent news and connect with ways to help.

  • 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.

    Docket: EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0361

    Monarch butterflies continue to decline -- there are 16 million fewer than just one year ago. Glyphosate kills milkweed plants that are critical to monarchs surviving. We strongly urge you to consider the significant harm to monarch butterflies in this assessment. Ban glyphosate to make sure that monarch butterflies have a fighting chance.

  • Sign the Petition for Bears Ears

    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

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

    Acting BLM Director Birna Steed,

    We, the undersigned, oppose any management plan that industrializes the lands previously protected within Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Great wild places belong to all of us -- not just the 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 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.

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

    Four wolves from the Harl Butte pack of Oregon have already been killed in the past 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.

  • Take Action: Oppose Fee Hikes at Popular National Parks

    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.

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!

  • Tell Congress to Reject Cuts to the EPA!

    The President has called for dramatic cuts to budgets of the Environmental Protection Agency and other non-military programs. It’s a proposal that could compromise some of our most important environmental protections.

    a man walks through a beautiful forest

    For more than 45 years, the Environmental Protection Agency has been the chief defender of clean air and water, wildlife and wild places. It has cleared the air of our cities. It has dramatically reduced acid rain that damages our forests and waters. And it has saved the bald eagle -- one of the most iconic animals in America -- from extinction.

    The good news is that Congress -- and not the President -- has the final say on federal spending. Your lawmakers were elected to represent you and your values in Washington, DC -- and that includes standing up for a healthy environment.

    Please take a stand for the clean air and water, wildlife and wild places that you love. Send a message to your Senators and Representative right now, and urge them to reject President Trump’s proposed cuts to the EPA.

  • Tell the Environmental Protection Agency: Ban Roundup Now

    Since their peak in the mid-90s, monarch populations have decreased by 90 percent, in part due to the widespread use of Roundup and other toxic pesticides. Tell the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to ban Roundup, so we can save this incredible insect before it’s too late.

  • Sign the Petition: We want cleaner water!

    President Trump’s administration is seeking to revoke vital clean water protections for millions of Americans -- and we only have until September 27 to stop them. (Updated Aug. 21, 2017)

    The Clean Water Rule was proposed by the Obama administration in 2015 in order to clarify which bodies of water are federally protected from pollution. The rule would expand federal protections for roughly one third of the US population.

    This is water that our children and grandchildren drink -- and it needs to be clean. We give it to our pets on hot summer days. It is water that fills some of our favorite swimming spots and fishing holes. It provides vital habitat for America’s treasured wildlife.

    Please add your name to our petition for clean water right now.









  • Tell Congress: Gray wolves are national treasures, not hunting trophies.

    Congress is considering a series of measures that would be catastrophic for wolves. From removing their protections under the Endangered Species Act to cutting any funding for their recovery, these attacks would be deadly for the 5500 wolves surviving in the lower 48 states. What’s worse, many of these proposed laws would block any legal review.

    Tell your representative and senators: Don’t delist gray wolves.

  • Stop Arch Coal’s Awful Colorado Mine Expansion

    The US Forest Service is now considering a proposal to allow the nation's second largest coal company, Arch Coal, to bulldoze roads and scrape methane vent pads into 1,700 acres of the pristine Sunset Roadless Area just forty miles west of Aspen, Colorado.

    Nestled along the flanks of the West Elk Wilderness, the protected Aspen and Engelmann spruce forests of the Sunset Roadless Area are home to elk, black bear, goshawk and the threatened lynx. That’s why it is so alarming that Arch Coal may be permitted to cut six miles of roads and 48 drill sites into the habitat of these animals.

    The mining expansion would open the door to mining more coal — but only at a heavy price to local wildlife and the area’s treasured natural beauty. The plan would destroy vital wildlife habitat and trade public access to this beautiful area for the sake of Arch Coal’s bottom line.

    Stand against coal mining in the Sunset Roadless Areas. Please sign our petition to the US forest service now.

  • Tell Exxon’s CEO To Cease And Desist

    When it comes to paying a $20 million fine for polluting the habitat of red foxes, herons, and humans, Exxon’s CEO, Darren Woods, won’t take “we’re guilty” for an answer.

    He’s ordered his lawyers to appeal the already-seven-years-long case, to avoid setting a bad precedent for similar lawsuits at his other refineries around the country. But Woods also doesn’t want bad publicity to upset the tens of millions of customers who buy his gasoline.

    Join us in sending a Cease And Desist letter to Darren Woods, asking him to drop the appeal and take the lumps he and his company so richly deserve.

  • Add your name: Stand with wolves, grouse and lynx

    I oppose efforts in Congress to weaken the Endangered Species Act, including setting deadlines for endangered animals to recover, or approval from politicians for newly endangered animals to receive protection.

    Human activities like mining, logging, and construction have driven more than a thousand species of animals, birds, fish, and plants to the brink of extinction. The planet is experiencing the worst extinction event in 65 million years. We know that Earth is a more fantastic place with wildlife like grizzly bears, gray wolves, and sage grouse – but if we want them to survive, they’ll need our help, and the Endangered Species Act does just that.

  • Stop Jordan Cove LNG

    Have you heard? Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is being considered AGAIN! After denying the project twice in 2016 under the Obama administration, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) accepted Jordan Cove’s pre-filing application in February, placing it back on the table.

    FERC turned down Jordan Cove in March 2016, as well as the proposed 232-mile Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline that would link to it, and then rejected a request that the pipeline be reconsidered last December. But now the company feels like it has a shot under the Trump administration announcing plans to refile, and started that process February.

    The proposed pipeline would carry natural gas across four counties on its way to a plant in Coos Bay. From there, it would be liquefied and loaded on ships -- putting Oregon’s clean water and air in jeopardy, as well undermining the region’s investment in salmon restoration. We are running out of time the comment period ends July 10, so sign and share with friends and family now to STOP Jordan Cove.

  • Stop the Green Investor Gag Rule

    Exxon and other big corporate polluters hate being told by their shareholders to clean up their act. So, they’re pushing the Green Investor Gag Rule, which is a part of the Financial CHOICE Act (H.R. 10). It will make it impossible for all but multi-billion-dollar investors to sponsor shareholder resolutions, like the one that just forced Exxon to take climate change into account in its long-term planning.

    Send a message to Congress today to stop the Gag Rule and continue to let shareholders vote on environmental resolutions.

  • Protect Sea Turtles, Whales and Other Wildlife: Stop Dangerous Oil and Gas Drilling Off the Atlantic Coast

    President Trump just signed an executive order reversing the Obama administration's ban on dangerous offshore oil and gas drilling in the Arctic and ordering a review of possible new drilling sites off the Atlantic Coast. It’s a backwards-looking plan that could do major damage to the environment.

    Offshore drilling operations often use seismic testing to find drilling sites, emitting massive sound blasts that wreak havoc with already-imperiled whales, sea turtles, dolphins, and other marine life. More drilling would also increase the risk of deadly oil spills that can poison the water and hurt its wildlife.

    Speak out now for sea turtles, whales, dolphins, and other wildlife. Tell the US Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke that you OPPOSE new oil and gas drilling off our Atlantic Coast.
