Monumental Lawsuit for the Climate

In August, WildEarth Guardians and Physicians for Social Responsibility filed a landmark lawsuit challenging the oil and gas industry's push to frack hundreds of thousands of acres of the western United States. Our staff attorneys filed suit with the help of the Western Environmental Law Center. We're calling on the Obama Administration to put the brakes on new oil and gas leasing to protect our climate and our future.

Protecting Wildlife from Snowmobiles

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.
