  • Censored!

    Thanks to environmental activists like you, our PSA "Exxon Hates America" was on its way to air on TV this holiday weekend in New York City, Washington D.C., and Seattle. 

    Then something happened: the big cable companies suddenly refused our ad at the last minute. That's right, the same companies that bring you Game of ThronesA Shot at Love with Tia Tequila and other racy shows took told us our ad mocking Exxon was "too hot for TV."

  • If we can get this funny, satirical ad on the air this holiday weekend, it can shake up and wake up millions of our neighbors

    You already know that climate change is melting glaciers, deepening California's drought and forcing whole nations to relocate before they're swallowed up by rising oceans.  What a lot of Americans don't know, however, is that our government gives over $20 billion a year to Exxon and the other companies most directly responsible for the climate crisis.

  • Changing the dialogue around bear hunting couldn't be more urgent

    Changing the dialogue around bear hunting in Maine couldn’t be more urgent right now. Thousands of Mainers are currently making the decision on whether or not they support banning baiting, trapping and dogging bears in Maine.* If we wait until November, outside pro-hunting groups will have already spent millions of dollars in misleading political ads that depict bears as vicious killers. We need to act ahead of these outside groups to educate undecided Mainers about the importance of wildlife conservation.

  • Exxon Hates America

    Have you ever looked at a news report on rampant climate destruction, industry funded climate denial or the quarterly earnings of big oil companies like Exxon — and thought jeez, do these people just hate America or what?

  • Great news; Tragic news on wolves

    Great news: California has enacted new protections to save wolves, and a new litter of wolf pups was born in Oregon for the first time in years!
    Tragic news: Just as we were writing this, we got confirmation that another member of the same pack as the new parents in Oregon was illegally shot and killed just over the border in Idaho.
  • I can Bear-ly believe this hunting is legal

    Maine has some of the nation's best habitat for black bears. These intelligent, wild creatures are extremely shy and are rarely seen. So rather than respect nature, vicious sport hunters resort to killing bears with dogs, steel traps that break their bones and leave them to bleed to death, and baiting them with piles of donuts and other food.
