National Grassland Defended From Fracking

Colorado’s Front Range is under siege by fracking, threatening the health of the region and its communities. We’re fighting back to thwart the oil and gas industry’s push into our public lands, defending the Pawnee National Grassland, America’s last remaining short-grass prairie, and other vital open spaces. For our clean air and water, our climate, and our wildlife, it’s time to rein in fossil fuels on our western public lands.

End Animal Killing Contests in New Mexico

WildEarth Guardians joined nine conservation groups in December 2014 calling for a ban on wildlife-killing contests in New Mexico after a new national ranking gave the state the dubious honor of holding the highest number of cruel killing contests each year. The killing contests target coyotes, bobcats, foxes, prairie dogs and other animals. We are asking the Governor and state legislature to ban these biologically unsound contests.

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.
