Protect Bees from this Toxic Pesticide

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently approved a pesticide which it calls “very highly toxic” to bees.1        This pesticide is deadly to bee colonies. This toxic pesticide called sulfoxaflor is one cause of plunging bee populations. One study found that sulfoxaflor impairs bees’ ability to reproduce — colonies exposed to sulfoxaflor produced 54 percent fewer male bees and no queens.2 That’s why we’re […]

Your Action Needed to Protect Lions

The African lion is the only big cat not protected by an international treaty that prohibits the buying and selling of products made from their bodies.1      This bill could save lions. Now, a bill that could save lions from trophy hunting is being debated on Capitol Hill. The Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing the Importation of Large Animal Trophies (CECIL) Act, named for the […]

Aren’t our skies polluted enough? Stop space billboards.

Is there anything that can’t be turned into an ad trying to sell some product? A company wants to test that theory by putting huge billboards in orbit, visible in the evening sky to billions below.     The night sky is worth protecting. Fifty years ago, when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, we could look to the sky and ponder with awe […]

A Victory for Bees

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced it will resume data collection for its annual Honey Bee Colonies report.1 This news comes after the USDA cut honeybee research earlier this summer. While the temporary suspension will leave a gap in this year’s data, we are thrilled that the USDA has listened to our message and decided not to discount honeybees. Your […]

Tell your Governor: Be a Bee-Friendly State

Last year alone, there was a nearly 40 percent decline in the honeybee population.1       Bees need safe, healthy habitat to survive. Habitat loss, fragmentation and degradation are among the major causes of colony collapse disorder.2 As native vegetation is replaced by roadways, neighborhoods and crop fields, bees lose the food sources and nesting sites they rely on. That’s why we’re asking our governors […]

Protect Bristol Bay from this harmful open-pit mine

We need to protect Bristol Bay. Its lush green landscape of wetlands and blooming tundra may soon be torn apart for a mine.       Bristol Bay is wild and worth protecting. Just as the Army Corps of Engineers closed the public comment period, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that the proposed plan is far worse than previously thought, and that the Army […]

August’s Thneed Trophy goes to: Exotic animal cowboy boots

Wrapping a threatened species around your feet doesn’t exactly evoke the bucolic “home on the range” There’s something very American, even very back-to-nature, about cowboy boots.  Sure, cowboys helped destroy much of the Plains’ ecosystem, and even today, some of them oppose restoring grasslands for the bison who once roamed them.  But one of the most enduring images of America — admired worldwide […]

Take action to save Washington wolves

Washington wolves need our help right now. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) just killed four members of the Old Profanity Territory wolf pack, leaving only one wolf alive.1       Washington wolves are dying. A judge has blocked the killing of the last Old Profanity Territory wolf for now, but this isn’t the only pack with a current kill order out […]

Take a stand for the Endangered Species Act

The Trump administration has gutted our nation’s most powerful tool for wildlife conservation: the Endangered Species Act (ESA).       Endangered Species Act rollbacks are disastrous for wildlife. Under their new rules, endangered animals could be refused protection for the sake of oil and gas profits. Not only that, but animals considered “threatened” with extinction will no longer receive the same level of protection.1 Congress […]

Protect the Grand Canyon. Make this ban permanent.

Some places are too precious to mine. The Grand Canyon is one of them. It’s time to protect the Grand Canyon with a permanent ban on uranium mining.       Protect the Grand Canyon with a ban on uranium mining. While the depths of Grand Canyon are protected as a national park, outside those borders, uranium mining threatens to poison and pollute this natural […]
