Guardians Defend Endangered Species
Species Act is under attack again from anti-conservation politicians and
destructive industries. Several states and industry groups are suing to
overturn federal protections for the gravely imperiled lesser prairie-chicken
and attacking Guardians’ historic settlement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service created to resolve the backlog of species awaiting ESA protections. In
the coming months we’ll be calling on you to voice your support for the ESA.
Protecting the Wild and Scenic Rio Grande
Guardians and a dozen
recreational boating and environmental groups have joined forces to ensure
flows in America's first Wild and Scenic River—the Rio Grande. In order to
change the course of the failed management efforts by the Bureau of Land Management,
the coalition requested that New Mexico Senator Udall step in to provide
leadership and funding to best protect the unique geologic, recreational, fish
habitat and cultural values of the Rio Grande.
Protecting Chaco Canyon From Fracking
The Greater Chaco region of northwestern New Mexico is
facing unprecedented threats as the Bureau of Land Management approves more
fracking. The region’s native
communities, clean air, water, and our climate are all at risk. Together with a coalition of local, regional,
and national organizations and individuals, we’re pushing back, filing
suit to put the brakes the oil and gas industry and calling
on our Congressional leaders to stand up for a healthy future. Sign
our petition today and help keep Chaco frack-free!
Grateful for Guardian Givers
Alan Hamilton loves doing restoration work with Guardians’ Restoration Director Jim Matison and the crew he manages.“We work really well together because
we share similar environmental ethics, but even more importantly we are
both committed to getting restoration projects done." Alan and his extended family knew Guardians was the right organization
to support over the last several years when it became clear that we were
committed, ...continued here.
