Gulf of California: Save the Last Vaquita

Together, we can protect the Gulf of California World Heritage site, home to the critically endangered vaquita. There may be fewer than 30 vaquita left in the world and we can save them.  But, we must act now and ask the Mexican president to take strong action now.

Tell Congress: Help Save Vanishing Species

The Multinational Species Conservation Funds, run by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, play an important role in helping to protect the planet’s remaining populations of elephants, rhinos, tigers, great apes and marine turtles. To help boost these funds, Congress created the Save Vanishing Species Semipostal Stamp – commonly referred to as the “Tiger Stamp” - which lets consumers support these wildlife conservation programs every time they send a letter. Since the Tiger Stamp went on sale in 2011, more than 35 million have been sold, raising over $3.7 million for international conservation at no cost to US taxpayers. This great program will expire later this year unless Congress acts to renew it. Ask your Members of Congress to cosponsor the Multinational Species Semipostal Stamp Reauthorization Act.

Tell President Trump to Prioritize Our Planet’s Future

President Trump and his administration recently announced they would take measures to roll back progress made on climate change policy. This decision ignores the sweeping actions being taken by companies, states, cities and communities across America, who are already making progress to create a future powered by clean energy. Sign the below petition and ask President Trump to prioritize our planet’s future.

Stand up for climate action on March 25th!

Every year, hundreds of millions of people around the world switch off their lights for one designated hour to demonstrate a commitment to fighting climate change. This year, Earth Hour takes place at 8:30 p.m. local time on March 25. There’s never been a more critical moment for the world to show solidarity for and a strong commitment to fighting climate change. By going dark, local government, cities, companies, landmarks, and individuals send the message that we will remain steadfast as we deliver on the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. Momentum is on our side. The world is looking toward a renewable future. This Earth Hour, turn up the dark and get loud about climate action. Let the world know you’re all in.

URGENT: Tell President Obama to Finalize Environmental Priorities

President Obama only has a few weeks left in office until he turns over the reins to a new administration. In December, he finalized two important environmental priorities. Let's make sure he knows we're still watching, and that we want to see the remaining key environmental initiatives his administration started, finished. President Obama recently announced permanent protections for 115 million acres of federal waters in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas. Including previous presidential withdrawals, this action permanently protects nearly 125 million acres in the offshore Arctic from future oil and gas activity. New regulations were also passed to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. There’s still important work to be done during his last weeks in office. Ask President Obama to finalize protecting conservation and international climate funding, just like he permanently protected the Arctic and implement the anti-illegal fishing regulations. We must protect the future of our planet!

URGENT: Tell President Obama to Finalize Environmental Priorities

President Obama has less than two months until he turns over the reins to a new administration. Let's make sure he knows we're still watching, and that we want to see the key environmental initiatives his administration started, finished. The Obama Administration just made sure America’s Arctic will be free of new offshore oil and gas drilling for the next five years, and that’s good news for people and wildlife. Now we need President Obama to go one step further. Ask President Obama to prioritize permanent protection of natural places like the Arctic from oil and gas drilling, while also finalizing three other top environmental priorities in his last weeks in office. We must protect the future of our planet!

Sign On to Help Protect Tigers

Right now, captive tiger cubs can be forced to interact with the public when they are only four weeks old. This is because the current patchwork of US regulations regarding captive tigers protects them in some ways, but not others. There is little federal regulation that tracks the status of captive tigers in the US. Unfortunately, this makes them extremely susceptible to the international illegal trade in tiger parts. We need to ensure that tigers in the US aren't feeding or sustaining that illegal trade. Sign this petition to tell the US government to fully ban public contact with tigers in the US.
