Let’s bring our planet back from the brink
From whales and wolves to our waters and forests, wildlife and wild places need our help.
The planet needs our protection this Earth Day.
After living through years of environmental rollbacks, one thing is clear: our planet’s special places and species can’t speak for themselves — and that’s where you come in.
Right now, we’re at a crossroads: The environmental action we take today could make or break the health of our planet.
That’s why, this Earth Day, Environmental Action is calling on you as we stand up for our only home. Will you donate to support our work to protect the planet?
Together, we can make a difference.
Thanks to your help, in 2021 we’ve already seen some progress on the most pressing issues of our time. When we spoke up together, we helped temporarily protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from drilling, and we helped restore the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to its full potential.
But with gray wolf hunts decimating what few wolves remain and pollinators dropping at unprecedented rates, we know that there’s still work to be done.
With you by our side, Environmental Action can continue connecting nature-loving, action-taking supporters as we put our planet — and all its bumblebees, birds, wolves and waterways — first. Here’s what we’re working to accomplish by next Earth Day:
- Save gray wolves: When the Trump administration delisted gray wolves, we realized the species might slip to extinction. That’s why we’re working to reinstate their endangered species protections and stop the dangerous state-sponsored wolf hunts that leave hundreds of wolves dead in a matter of days.1
- Protect our pollinators: Environmental Action is taking aim at one of the worst threats to our pollinators: dangerous pesticides, like neonics and Roundup. With beekeepers seeing record-breaking bee die-offs and western monarchs dropping from 1.2 million down to just 2,000, we can’t afford to let these dangerous substances starve our species to extinction.2 That’s why we’re working to ban glyphosate, Roundup’s main ingredient.
- Stand up for our special places: From Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge down to Florida’s Ginnie Springs, we’re still seeing companies try to drill and drain our special places.3,4 That’s why we’re working to secure permanent protections — so generations to come can know the places we love.
These are big goals, but with supporters like you by our side, we know we can make an even bigger difference.
