Help save whitetip sharks from extinction

The apex predator on land is about to wipe out the apex predator of the ocean. Humans have driven the oceanic whitetip shark to the verge of extinction, even though losing sharks would be disastrous for our oceans.     Sharks are vital — but they’re vanishing. Oceanic whitetip shark populations have declined worldwide by 88 percent in recent years, and even more in […]

Tell your governor: Ban Roundup to save monarch butterflies

When North America’s monarch butterflies finally converged on their wintering grounds in Mexico this year, the species’ heartbreaking decline was laid bare. The butterflies covered 53 percent less area this winter compared to the winter before.1     We need to ban Roundup to save monarchs. If we want to save the monarch migration, one of nature’s greatest phenomena, we need to stop the […]

Will Idaho become a “wolf free zone”?

Idaho lawmakers want to make parts of the state into permanent “wolf-free zones” where an unlimited number of wolves can be killed — even when mothers are in dens with their pups.1     Wolves could be hunted to extinction. Hunting once killed nearly every single wolf in the lower 48 states. If states like Idaho turn into wolf killing free-for-alls, we face the […]

Take action: Stop this cruel elephant hunt

African elephants have never been more threatened.     Elephant populations are plummeting. From 2007 to 2014, their population plummeted by 30 percent. And that drop is only the latest chapter in a 100-year-long history of poaching that has brought elephant numbers down from 10 million to less than 500,000.1,2 They need protection more than ever. So why are we allowing Americans to hunt them […]

Bee a voice for our most important pollinators

Forty-seven states have yet to ban the most dangerous uses of bee-killing pesticides called neonicotinoids.     States can do more to protect bees. This was one of the main conclusions of our recently released Beeport Card. Despite a growing body of research linking neonicotinoids to mass bee die-offs, an overwhelming majority of governors have yet to take action. You have a platform — and […]

This could make a big difference for red wolf conservation

In 2019, not a single red wolf pup was born in the wild — a first since the reintroduction program began decades ago.1     Red wolves are on the brink of extinction in the wild. With no new pups, red wolves’ future is far from certain. And with just 14 or fewer remaining, it’s clear that red wolves need all the allies they […]

Tell your senators: Vote to rescue right whales

The North Atlantic right whale’s small, battered population declined at 10 times the sustainable rate last year.1,2 But November brought a glimmer of hope.1     The SAVE Right Whales Act will boost whale recovery. The U.S. Senate is preparing to vote on the SAVE Right Whales Act — meaning that recovery efforts could soon get a desperately-needed boost. That would be great news for […]

Offshore Drilling Dangers: The 2010 Deepwater Offshore Oil Disaster (Photo: US Coast Guard)

Stop the next Deepwater Horizon-sized oil spill

People make mistakes; machines fail. So when our oceans are drilled for oil, catastrophes like Deepwater Horizon are just accidents waiting to happen.     Offshore drilling is just too risky. It took just one accident for over 3 million barrels of oil to start flowing into the Gulf of Mexico, smothering and killing untold numbers of innocent creatures and transforming hundreds of square […]

Keep Nestlé from draining this Florida spring

Ginnie Springs — a natural spring that’s home to more than 15 species of turtles — is under threat. Nestlé is trying to pump up to 1.1 million gallons of water a day from the Florida spring.1     Ginnie Springs is a beautiful oasis. With its crystal blue waters and canopy of cypress trees, Ginnie Springs is a hidden oasis. Located in northwestern […]

A bill to save the Endangered Species Act

Last year, President Trump gutted the Endangered Species Act (ESA) — increasing the chances of thousands of species going extinct.1     The Endangered Species Act is vital. For more than 40 years, the ESA has been the nation’s bedrock conservation law — and Environmental Action is working to ensure it can continue to defend vulnerable wildlife for generations to come. We delivered more than […]
