Our mission

We love the places, plants and animals that abound throughout our amazing country and around our incredible planet, and we want to protect them. Environmental Action’s mission is to unite as many like-minded people as we can around the values, practices and policies that are necessary to not only sustain life on our planet but to help it thrive in all its wildness and wonder.

About Environmental Action

The original Environmental Action was founded in 1970, on the first Earth Day, as a community of grassroots environmental activists for a cleaner, greener world.

We believe that in a more perfect world, more of us would value the environment for its own sake, not only because people get something out of it. We refuse to remain silent when the wildlife and wild places we love are degraded and destroyed by reckless exploitation. We stand ready whenever necessary to unite our voices for a greener world. And we’re open to anybody who shares our passion to make all life on our planet not only possible, but awesome — with clean air and water, abundant wildlife, and the places we love protected forever.

What We Do

We’re defending our nation’s wonderful, wild wolves wherever they roam. We’re working to restore Endangered Species Act protection for gray wolves; standing up for the last wild red wolves on Earth; and promoting protection for the lobos of the American Southwest.

Bee populations are in startling decline — but we can save them. We’re advocating for bans on the most harmful uses of the pesticides that kill bees and promoting the planting of bee-friendly habitat across the nation. Our Beeport Card grades states on their bee-friendly policies.

Environmental Action supporters stand up for nature in all its forms. We’re working to protect special places from harmful drilling on land and offshore; stop deforestation from the Tongass to the Amazon; save vulnerable wildlife from extinction; and much more.
