We're On the Offense for Wolverines, Lynx

In July, WildEarth Guardians defended quiet winter landscapes that provide important habitat for wolverine, lynx, grizzly, and big game from snowmobiles on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. We filed an objection to the U.S. Forest Service’s decision to allow extensive snowmobile use across the forest’s 3.35 million acres.

Killing Program’s Outrageous Death Toll

“Wildlife Services,” the federal wildlife killing program, used our tax dollars to kill over 1.6 million native animals last year, including 731 bobcats, 1,511 gray foxes, 1,534 red foxes, 20,334 black tailed prairie dogs, 480 black bears, 21,557 beavers, 69,905 coyotes, 284 cougars, 384 gray wolves and one critically endangered Mexican wolf. These horrifying numbers highlight the urgent need for reform of the rogue program.

Chaco Canyon Frack Plans Pulled

Amidst increasing pressure, plans to auction off more than 2,000 acres of publicly owned oil and gas leases for fracking near Chaco Canyon National Historical Park have been canceled by the Bureau of Land Management. WildEarth Guardians joined a broad coalition of groups earlier this year in calling on the agency to abandon its plans.

Just Transition Now

The Obama Administration is moving to reform the way our publicly owned coal is managed and this May and June, a series of public hearings are planned. Our message is clear: it's time to help the western U.S. move on from coal; it's time for Just Transition. As industry collapses, it's our opportunity to keep coal in the ground and help communities transition to more sustainable and prosperous economies.
