Tell Congress: Protect bees from harmful pesticides

Enjoy honey, chocolate and coffee? With bee populations in freefall, some of your favorite foods might start to vanish alongside your favorite pollinator.     It’s time to save the bees. A summer day just wouldn’t be complete without the buzzing of bees. That’s why Representatives Earl Blumenauer (Ore.) and Jim McGovern (Mass.) put together a plan to protect bees by suspending the use of […]

Help us save wolves from hunting

We need your support to help save gray wolves from hunting. The clock is ticking toward the end of our fiscal year — and so is the clock for gray wolves. Right now, for the first time since the 1970s, gray wolves across the entire Lower 48 states are missing the strong Endangered Species Act protection that rescued them from the […]

Will you take action to help save gray wolves?

Two hundred and sixteen dead wolves in 60 deadly hours. That’s 18 percent of Wisconsin’s wolf population slaughtered by hunters in less than three days.1     Gray wolves are dying. Wisconsin rushed to allow hunters to chase down wolves with dogs this past February, just weeks after wolves lost their Endangered Species Act protections. Yet another hunting and trapping season is already planned […]

8 million tons of plastic pollution each year

Each year, approximately 8 million metric tons of plastic waste make their way into our world’s oceans. That’s the equivalent of five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline.1     Plastic pollution is deadly to wildlife. All this plastic pollution in our environment isn’t just unsightly. It’s also deadly. Millions of animals are killed by plastic every year, from fish […]

This pipeline would add 50 new coal plants’ worth of climate emissions

In the “land of 10,000 lakes,” Enbridge is rushing to build a pipeline that would be disastrous for water quality, ecosystems and our climate.     We need to stop this pipeline. Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline in Minnesota crosses more than 800 wetlands and 200 bodies of water — including hundreds of essential U.S. water sources.1 The Line 3 pipeline is an oil spill waiting […]

A death sentence looms over America’s lynx

America’s lynx population is collapsing, and a recently introduced bill could be the last nail in this wild cat’s coffin.     Lynx populations are declining. Officials have long been worried by the decline in lynx populations in the United States. As just one indicator of the problem, a 2016 study estimated that there could be as few as 54 lynx left in Washington […]

Tell Congress to mend fractured wildlife habitats

Moose, deer and elk can now safely walk across a busy highway in Utah — thanks to a wildlife corridor, which is an overpass above the highway that blends in with the natural landscape.     Wildlife corridors save lives. Before that wildlife corridor was built, the highway was the scene of 106 collisions between vehicles and animals, which killed 98 deer.1 Wildlife corridors are […]

Tell your senators: Permanently protect the Arctic Refuge

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a safe haven for polar bears, caribou and countless migratory birds. It’s a special place, but there could be dark times ahead for the Arctic Refuge if we don’t act.     Our senators can protect the Arctic Refuge from drilling. Under a 2017 law, hundreds of thousands of acres of Arctic Refuge land were opened for oil […]

Tips to make your Spring cleaning green

Harsh cleaning supplies can pollute the environment — which can be a problem for people and wildlife alike. Studies show that one common ingredient in cleaners, alkylphenol ethoxylates, cause reproductive issues in wildlife exposed to polluted waters.1 Homemade cleaning products can contain less harmful chemicals, and they’re a zero waste alternative because they don’t require plastic packaging like items from the […]

Add your name to keep “forever chemicals” out of our waterways

Reaching over 29,000 feet into the atmosphere, the summit of Mount Everest is a barren and unforgiving place. Little more exists there than rock, ice and snow. Yet somehow, high levels of toxic chemicals called PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, have made their way to the roof of the world.1   “Forever chemicals” don’t belong in our environment. This finding highlights the […]
