Congress Undermines Sage Grouse Protection

The U.S. Congress passed an omnibus spending bill that is a direct attack on the Endangered Species Act. A rider attached to the spending legislation blocks the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from adopting long-overdue protections for imperiled sage grouse. This crisis of conscience by the U.S. Congress demands a nationwide response. Please join us in demanding accountability.

Coal Mines' Pollution Pass Expires

Toxic air pollution at coal mines nationwide is slated to be reined in as the U.S. Office of Surface Mining announced it is granting a petition filed by WildEarth Guardians to curtail “orange clouds” produced from massive strip mining operations. The coal industry has been given a free pass to pollute for too long; the Office of Surface Mining is moving in the right direction to ensure that public health and safety comes before coal.

Stopping Bloodshed on Forest Service Lands

This year in Idaho, we’ve ensured the planned January 2015 killing contest won’t occur on our public lands managed by the BLM, now we want to make sure no blood is shed on our Forest Service lands either. Guardians is still in court. Our lawsuit will be hard fought, but if we win, we will force the Forest Service to uphold its duty as steward of our public lands.
