This kind of agriculture drains the soil of nutrients and contributes to the proliferation of pests. We know viable sustainable alternatives exist, and the health of our food and environment depends on pursuing them. That’s why we’re joining our friends at U.S. PIRG […]

Your second chance to speak up for the red wolf, the world’s rarest wolf

Only 35 individuals are all that remains of America’s wild red wolf population, roaming their protected habitat in North Carolina. But the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (FWS) new management plan would shrink the wolves’ haven to just 12 percent of its former size — and legalize hunting of any red wolf that crosses the border.1 It’s not too late to […]
