Tell Congress: Protect our national parks

It’s not enough to say “Leave No Trace” — we need to take action to protect our parks from single-use plastics.       Plastic pollution is piling up in national parks. While hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains, standing under the giant trees of Sequoia National Park, or climbing the red rocks of Arches and Canyonlands, the last thing you want to see is […]

Environmental Action Impact: Gray Wolves

Did you know this about wolves?

Did you know this about wolves? Wolves are featured in countless fairy tales — often as a frightening villain. For some, the “big bad wolf” is the only frame of reference they have for what wolves are like. But what are wolves really like? It’s time to put the myths aside and get the facts on gray wolves. Myth: Wolves are dangerous to […]

1 in 5 Yellowstone wolves killed in first months of Montana hunting season

In just the first months of Montana’s hunting season, hunters killed nearly 1 in 5 of Yellowstone’s wolves.1     Yellowstone’s wolves are in danger. Three-quarters of those deaths occurred after wolves crossed the park’s boundary in Montana. Those deaths wouldn’t have occurred without recent changes in Montana law making it much, much easier to kill wolves. This situation is unsustainable, and if nothing changes […]

Baby Right whales are being born — but they’re in serious danger

It’s birthing season for the North Atlantic Right whale, a time of both hope and danger for the critically endangered species.       Fishing lines threaten Right whales. At least nine new calves have been born so far this birthing season, which typically lasts from December to March.1 This spring, they’ll face a perilous migration northward, where fishing lines, such as the vertical lines […]

Meet one of Yellowstone’s wolf packs

If we took a look inside a wolf pack, what would we see?     Wolf packs are cooperative families. Many expect to find a strict hierarchy — alpha wolves on top, omegas on the bottom.

Tell Amazon: Ditch single-use plastics

Over the past year, Amazon’s plastic pollution has spiked by almost a third.       Half a billion pounds of plastic waste. According to a new report, Amazon produced more than a half billion pounds of plastic waste last year.1 We can’t let the convenience of two-day shipping pollute our planet for centuries. To protect our planet, we need to call on Amazon to ditch […]

Tell the EPA: It’s time to crack down on methane

It’s up to 28 times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide — and you can help make sure we emit a lot less of it.1       Methane gas is fueling the climate crisis. Methane gas is one of the biggest factors behind our warming climate — fueling the climate crisis that’s threatening endangered species across the planet and driving violent wildfires, […]

Help keep logging out of the Tongass

Wolves, bears, bald eagles and centuries-old trees all live in the Tongass National Forest — but without a change of rules, the logging industry could soon chop down their home.       Now is our chance to save this crucial forest. Last fall, the Trump administration suspended protections for untouched stretches of this vast Alaskan forest, which has been overexploited by logging for years.1 […]
