Democracy Requires Showing Up

 

Act Now

Our public lands and waters are under threat

In December 2017, the president reduced our protected public lands by nearly 2 million acres. But the fight isn’t over. We need your voice and your vote to remind elected officials that Americans want public lands protected.

Act Now

Stop New Offshore Drilling

The president and Department of the Interior announced plans to open almost all U.S. waters to new offshore drilling. Offshore drilling is a dirty and destructive business that will harm our oceans, marine life and coastal communities.

Act Now

Protect the Arctic Refuge from future oil and gas drilling.

The Department of the Interior has announced plans to lease the coastal plain of Alaska’s Arctic Refuge to oil and gas companies. This is the biological heart of the refuge and a sacred area for the Gwich’in people. Damage to this intact wilderness could have widespread negative consequences.

Take Action

Protect takayna / Tarkine

takayna / Tarkine in northwestern Tasmania is home to one of the last undisturbed tracts of old growth rainforest in the world. Yet this place, which remains largely as it was when dinosaurs roamed the planet, is at the mercy of destructive extraction industries, including logging and mining.

Act Now

Save the Blue Heart of Europe

More than 3,000 hydropower dams and diversions are proposed or being built on wild rivers in the Balkans—with almost half in protected areas. These projects would permanently damage the last untamed rivers in Europe—impacting wildlife, displacing communities and destroying freshwater resources.

Act Now

Stand for Salmon

The Pebble Mine, a massive proposed open-pit mine to be built at the headwaters of the Nushagak and Kvichak Rivers in the Bristol Bay region, threatens one of the most productive salmon ecosystems in the world.

Act Now

Save the Boundary Waters

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area is a 1.1 million-acre Wilderness in Minnesota and America’s most visited Wilderness, attracting over 155,000 people annually. But the area is threatened by a proposed sulfide-ore copper mining operation within its watershed, less than a mile from the Wilderness edge.

Act Now

Success!
