Guardians Marks Lynx Conservation Milestone

After nearly a decade of Guardians’ advocacy, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finally protected lynx in New Mexico and throughout the contiguous U.S. However, the Service simultaneously undermined lynx recovery by failing to protect thousands of square miles of critical lynx habitat. We challenged the inadequate critical habitat designation to ensure a future for these beautiful cats.


Government Warned to Protect Ocelots

Guardians and our partners are holding the Agriculture Department’s rogue Wildlife Services program accountable for failing to consider and address the impacts of its cruel wildlife trapping and killing practices on critically endangered ocelots and their habitat in Arizona. We continue working to daylight this terrible program’s cruel practices to force transparency and protect native carnivores.

Historic Grazing Buy-Out

In April, Guardians successfully completed negotiations in the heart of the Greater Gila bioregion to retire grazing on 28,000 acres of forest—returning it to the wild. Our novel approach to resolving public land grazing challenges in the Gila offers reprieve to lands and watersheds that have been left vulnerable by years of overgrazing, drought, and wildfire.
