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.

Feds Refuse to Protect Wolverines

Guardians and our partners will hold the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service accountable for blatantly politicizing the Endangered Species Act wolverine listing process by challenging the Service’s withdrawal of the proposed listing of the fierce but climate-stressed carnivore. We continue working to ensure all imperiled species receive the protections of the Endangered Species Act and to secure room to roam for all native carnivores.

Lawsuit Filed to Restore Iconic Rio Grande

Seeking a new future for the Rio Grande, Guardians filed suit in federal court to hold water managers accountable for their failed efforts to secure protections for the river and its numerous imperiled species. The Rio Grande serves as an artery of life in the southwest and we plan to ensure this river does not vanish.
