Temporary Ban on M-44 Cyanide Bombs

In response to a petition from Guardians and allies, USDA “Wildlife Services” removed all M-44 sodium cyanide bombs and instituted a moratorium on further M-44 use across Idaho's public and private lands. M-44s recently killed three family dogs and injured one boy in Wyoming and Idaho. We're demanding the government take necessary steps to ensure the safety of all people, dogs and wildlife by immediately making this ban permanent and nationwide. Join us in ending the war on wildlife.

Move to Block Fracking Giveaway

Moving to defend the climate and cherished public lands in the American West, including Rocky Mountain National Park, WildEarth Guardians filed appeals to overturn President Trump’s plans to give away public lands for fracking in Colorado and Utah. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is proposing to auction off more than 100,000 acres of public lands in Colorado to the oil and gas industry, and nearly 25,000 acres of public lands in central Utah are slated for giveaway for as little as $1.50 an acre. We’re going to do everything we can to thwart this absurd scheme.

Progress in Protecting Chaco

A resolution defending the Greater Chaco region from fracking won approval in the New Mexico House of Representatives. House Memorial 70, “Protection of Chaco Landscape,” drew unprecedented support from Tribes and Pueblos. Although much more remains to be done to fully protect this sacred landscape from the oil and gas industry the resolution builds on a similar request from the Navajo Nation which asks the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to stop fracking in Greater Chaco until the agency can fully protect the landscape and its people.

Rethinking the Rio Grande

WildEarth Guardians unveiled its bold vision for conserving water and restoring flows to the Rio Grande in the report and website launched this month. The plan details the opportunity to move water stored in low-elevation reservoirs upstream to reservoirs located at higher elevations. Storing water in this manner would save a huge amount of water each year (otherwise lost to evaporation) and create the possibility of moving water downstream in a way that would bolster river flows and support native fish, wildlife and plants.
