Water Grab Threatens Rivers

Gila Fence Repair Gives Wolves Space

Wolves are now back in the Gila’s Deep Creek, thanks to Guardians’ work to close the Deep Creek allotment to cattle grazing in 2014. This month, Guardians and 15 volunteers spent a weekend repairing fences and removing old barbed wire on the allotment. Guardians is working to retire more allotments—and take down even more fences—from the Greater Gila Bioregion of New Mexico and Arizona to give wolves even more room to roam.

Defending Communities From Fracking

Guardians and our Navajo allies stood up to defend communities from fracking, calling out Utah Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) for holding a political hearing that blatantly marginalized indigenous concerns. For years now, Navajo communities have suffered from unchecked fracking—facing air pollution, dangerous tank explosions, and signs of worsening health.
