Suit Filed to Protect Imperiled Lynx from Idaho Traps

Beautiful and imperiled Canada lynx are falling victim to cruel traps in Idaho placed to catch other apex carnivores including gray wolves and bobcats. Guardians and our allies filed suit in federal court challenging Idaho’s failure to ensure federally protected lynx are not caught in these horrific traps. Ensuring adequate state management will help lynx and other rare species survive and thrive.

Real Conservation for Lesser Prairie Chickens

When the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service traded much-needed Endangered Species Act protections for the extremely rare lesser prairie chicken for optional conservation measures under state plans, WildEarth Guardians and partner groups filed a legal challenge. We’re seeking to force mandatory protections that prevent damaging levels of oil and gas drilling, livestock grazing and plowing native prairie for crops, so the lesser prairie chicken will have room to roam.
