End Mining Within 100 Feet of Streams

Center for Biological DiversityDear Friend,
Kentucky stream
Did you know it's completely legal for coal companies to dump toxic waste directly into streams? It's even legal to mine right through our waterways. For decades Big Coal has been allowed to poison them. But now we have a chance to stop all that. A proposed rule by the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement could restrict mining for 100 feet around streams.

This new "Stream Buffer Zone Rule" wouldn't come a moment too soon. Across the country scores of American communities live downstream of dangerously polluting mines -- and along with the people, hundreds of imperiled species, from Big Sandy crayfish to Kentucky arrow darters, are suffering.

The coal industry is fighting these stricter standards tooth and nail. We have to push back. For too long mining has been allowed to wreak havoc on aquatic ecosystems from the Colorado Plateau and Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains, Illinois Basin and Gulf Coast. In Appalachia alone more than 2,000 miles of streams have been destroyed by mountaintop-removal mining.

Please, urge the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement to tighten and finalize the protections it has proposed. Tell the agency you support even stricter rules to prohibit all mining within 100 feet of streams -- no exceptions.

Public Lands, Oceans Hold 450 Billion Tons of Climate Pollution

Public Lands, Oceans Hold 450 Billion Tons of Climate Pollution
SmokestacksEnding new fossil fuel leasing on America's public lands and offshore areas would keep up to 450 billion tons of greenhouse gases from polluting our atmosphere, according to a first-of-its-kind analysis commissioned by the Center for Biological Diversity and Friends of the Earth.

The study, by consultants EcoShift, reveals that allowing these publicly owned fossil fuels to be developed would cripple the United States' ability to meet its obligations to avert the worst effects of the global climate crisis. Our publicly owned coal, oil and natural gas resources are controlled by the federal government, so President Barack Obama has it in his power to make sure they're never burned -- he just needs to commit to it.

The report kicks off a Center campaign to halt new fossil fuel leasing on public lands and offshore areas.

"Our climate can't afford the pollution from more federal fossil fuel leasing," said the Center's Taylor McKinnon. "The natural place for President Obama to start leading the global fight to keep fossil fuels in the ground is on our public lands and oceans."

Check out our Keep It in the Ground website, sign our petition to keep these fuels in the ground and share it with your networks.

Hawaiian Monk Seals Get 7,000 Square Miles of Protected Habitat
Hawaiian monk sealA lifeline for Hawaii's charismatic and unique seals: The National Marine Fisheries Service issued a final rule on Tuesdsay protecting more than 7,000 square miles of critical habitat for them. Monk seals are among the world's most endangered marine mammals, and several have been brutally killed in recent years in crimes that are yet unsolved. These monk seals' population is down to around 1,100 and falling at 3 percent annually.

"Hawaiian monk seals have been in serious trouble for a long time, and these new habitat protections will give them a desperately needed chance at survival," said Miyoko Sakashita, our oceans program director. "Monk seals are nearly extinct, so we need to make sure our coasts offer them a safe haven."

Tuesday's action is the culmination of a process that began in 2008 with a petition by the Center and allies. Critical habitat requires the federal government to consult biologists before allowing any activities that may disturb or damage the home of these rare and vanishing creatures; species with critical habitat are twice as likely to be recovering as those without.

Help 20 Herps Get Lifesaving Protections -- Take Action
Alligator snapping turtleBack in 2012, the Center filed a petition to protect dozens of amphibians and reptiles around the country. It was the largest of its kind and endorsed by more than 200 scientists including E.O. Wilson, Thomas Lovejoy and Michael Lannoo. Now the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is reviewing whether 20 of these petitioned herpetofauna, or "herps," will get protections under the Endangered Species Act. We need your help to make it happen.

Perhaps you've seen an alligator snapping turtle in the wild or been sung to sleep by Illinois chorus frogs; maybe you've come to eye-to-eye with one of Oregon's slender salamanders. But even if you haven't, these fascinating turtles, salamanders, frogs and snakes desperately need your help -- nearly 1 in 4 amphibians and reptiles is at risk of extinction, yet only 67 of the nation's more than 1,500 species protected under the Endangered Species Act represent these wildlife groups.

Act now to urge the Service to move quickly to protect these rare, incredible creatures before it's too late. You can even petition specifically for the species that may live near you.

Center Opens First International Office in La Paz, Mexico


VaquitaThe Center officially opened its first international office this week in La Paz, Mexico. Near the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, the office will be staffed by local, long-time oceans activist Alejandro Olivera Bonilla. His first order of business? Saving vaquitas, probably the most imperiled marine mammals on the planet.

Alex was a professor and researcher at the University of Baja California Sur for three years, then joined Greenpeace Mexico in Mexico City; before he came to us, he was communications and public policies coordinator at the Mexican Center for Environmental Law.

He'll also be working to protect sea turtles. Last Friday we had a timely victory when the National Marine Fisheries Service, a U.S. federal agency, "certified" Mexico because its fisheries are killing too many endangered loggerheads. In 2013 the Center and Turtle Island Restoration Network formally petitioned the Service to certify Mexico for its sea turtle bycatch; we'll now push the White House to quickly authorize a strong embargo on seafood products from Mexican fisheries.

The Arc and Art of Extinction -- Listen to Interview


Polar bearThis week Center Executive Director Kierán Suckling sat down with WCAI's Heather Goldstone for an in-depth interview about wildlife, extinction, culture, art and the future of the conservation movement.

Kierán was in Cape Cod, where he grew up, as part of several events in Martha's Vineyard this week, including our own Frostpaw the Polar Bear following President Obama with an urgent message on climate change, a screening of the film Racing Extinction, and an art event at Gay Head Gallery that focused on wildlife and extinction.

"At the end of the day, conservation is about love," said Kierán in the radio interview, "and art is the language of love. Art is what brings us closer to the world."

Wild on Campus: Sign Up for College Action Kits


College studentsThere are three things many college students will have on their mind as they head back to campus this fall: food, sex and activism. The first two may already be covered, so now the Center's Population and Sustainability program has created new Campus Wild Action Kits to tie all three issues together.

We're giving away 100 kits this fall as part of our search for campus leaders who will help lead the fight to save wildlife and spread the word about sustainability. The kits will help college students talk about how unsustainable consumption and population growth hurt the planet and how we can make better, Earth-friendlier choices every day. Students will receive a box with Take Extinction Off Your Plate materials to support campus efforts to reduce meat consumption and, of course, our Endangered Species Condoms to get classmates talking about the connection between reproductive choices and wildlife.

If you're a student or know someone on campus, be among the first to join our "Team Wild" campus volunteer network and receive one of the brand-new action kits. Sign up today.

Suit Aims to Protect Canada Lynx From Trapping Deaths, Injuries in Maine
Canada lynxThe Center and allies filed suit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Monday for allowing trappers in Maine to kill and seriously injure Canada lynx. Along with coyotes, foxes, mink and other animals, the snow cats are accidentally caught and killed in brutal traps every year -- including body-gripping Conibear traps, which snap shut in a viselike grip.

The lawsuit challenges a federal permit, issued to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife last year, that allows for three trapped lynx to be killed over 15 years, nine to suffer severe injury and 183 to suffer "minor" injuries and be immediately released. These numbers don't adequately show the problem, since the Service has found that 75 percent of trapped lynx aren't even reported.

"I'm outraged that endangered lynx continue to needlessly suffer and die in cruel traps," said the Center's Collette Adkins. "A few common-sense changes could prevent most of this suffering, but the Service refuses to require Maine's trapping programs to make those changes."

Video Catches Rare Glimpse of Florida Panther Family -- Watch Video
Florida pantherCheck this out: The Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute recently got permission to post trail camera footage of a female Florida panther and her three young offspring walking through Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in southwest Florida. The footage, from photographer Brian Hampton, is a rare glimpse of a panther family.

The Center has been working for years to protect Florida panthers and expand their habitat in the Southeast. There are fewer than 200 left in the wild, and since 2014 more than 50 have been discovered dead, most from vehicle strikes.

Here's to hoping this panther family stays safe and wild. Watch the video and then sign our petition supporting reintroduction of panthers to northern Florida.

Wild & Weird: Watch This Giant, Stinky Flower Bloom Live
Titan arumTitan arum, an enormous flowering plant known by many as the "corpse flower" due to its delicate bouquet of decomposing flesh, can produce a massive bloom more than 10 feet in height.

Its peak smell comes a few hours after full bloom and attracts beetles, carrion flies and other insects on the hunt for rotting meat -- many of which, in the wild, carry pollen on their bodies from other nearby corpse flowers. Temporarily stuck in the bloom, these insects ensure pollination and then are released by the plant.

You can watch a live feed of titan arum blooming at the Denver Botanic Gardens and then check out this time-lapse video of one blooming over a two-week period.

Oak Flat in central Arizona is sacred land to the San Carlos Apache tribe, but Congress traded it away



Center for Biological Diversity

Dear Friend,
Save Oak Flat
Breaking news: The fight to save Oak Flat is coming to Washington, D.C. next week and we need you there.

Oak Flat in central Arizona is sacred land to the San Carlos Apache tribe, but Congress traded it away last year to facilitate a huge copper mine for international mining giant Rio Tinto. The mine would destroy Oak Flat, where native people have held religious and coming-of-age ceremonies for generations, and leave behind a massive crater -- wiping out streams, springs and wildlife habitat.

Members of the Apache Stronghold have been caravanning across the United States this month from Arizona and arrive in Washington, D.C. next week for a massive rally. We need as many people as we can to show up and speak out for Oak Flat -- and support an important bill by Rep. Raúl Grijalva to repeal the Oak Flat giveaway.

The rally will be Wednesday, July 22 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.Please respond here if you can attend. If you can't come, sign our pledge to save Oak Flat.

CURRENT ACTIONS

  • NO MORE OIL FOR BROKEN COASTAL PIPELINE
    Platform Holly near Santa Barbara
    Bookmark and Share
    Safeguarded from new oil leases as a result of the horrific 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill, the California Coastal Sanctuary is once again at risk. The California State Lands Commission is considering a request from an oil company that wants to drill in these currently protected waters. 

    Tell the commission to say no to this brazen proposal and keep this oil in the ground.

    New drilling would dramatically increase oil production from offshore platforms and feed more crude into the exact same decades-old pipeline system that failed on May 19, spilling more than 100,000 gallons of oil near Santa Barbara.

    Expanding the lifespan of an aging offshore oil platform that should be retired risks another spill and will only deepen our climate crisis.

    Take action below -- urge Gov. Brown and the State Lands Commission to do the right thing and reject Venoco's application. 
  • THE DIRTIEST DEAL YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF
    Democracy protest
    Bookmark and Share
    On Wednesday, June 3, U.S. activist groups representing a broad range of interests are coordinating a massive call-in to Congress to stop a disastrous bill that would "fast track" international trade deals, tip the scales in favor of multinational corporations and cut the public out of decision-making.

    Please make a quick call to your representative to stop this now.

    The specter behind "fast track" is theTrans-Pacific Partnership -- a proposed trade agreement between the United States and 11 other countries, meant to counter China's rising economic influence. Foreign corporations don't want to be held accountable to the American public or U.S. Congress, so they're trying to fast-track highly controversial decisions. This is not how democracy works.

    There are many things wrong with fast-track, but one concrete way that it could affect you or someone you know is by bringing fracking to more U.S. communities. One of TPP's main goals is to ramp up U.S. exports of liquefied natural gas to Asia. That fracked gas could come from your town -- and your town could be sued under this trade deal if it tried to protect itself from this toxic practice.

    Please call your representative now to stop this dangerous deal in its tracks.

    Here's a sample script for your call. Type in your ZIP code to get your representative's phone number.

    Hi, my name is ______, and I live in ______. I'm calling to urge you to reject all legislation granting"fast track" trading authority. The proposal that just passed the Senate tips the scales in favor of multinational corporations, cuts the public out of decision-making and strips Congress' power to make crucial amendments to highly controversial deals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. At stake are a host of U.S. laws which could be negated under this trade deal. 
  • STOP BLM'S PLAN TO DOUBLE OFF-ROAD TRAFFIC IN WEST MOJAVE
    Mojave fringe-toed lizard
    Bookmark and Share
    A recent Bureau of Land Management proposal to fully double off-road vehicle miles in the western Mojave Desert is as outrageous as it sounds. The agency's plan allots 10,428 miles to roads for dirt bikes and four-wheelers -- the distance between Alaska and Tierra Del Fuego in South America -- when what the area needs is fewer routes, not more.

    More ORV routes will further degrade desert streams, increase soil erosion and worsen air quality problems. And these routes will tear up habitat used by imperiled wildlife such as desert tortoises, Mojave fringe-toed lizards and Lane Mountain milkvetch.

    A 2005 court order specifically requires BLM to apply minimization criteria when designating routes, but the agency's draft plan fails on all accounts.

    Act now to tell BLM to protect this fragile country full of rare wildlife, silence and stark beauty -- not turn it into a noisy and polluted ORV free-for-all.
  • CALL OFF THE FLORIDA BLACK BEAR HUNT
    Florida black bear
    Bookmark and Share
    In 2012 wildlife managers removed Florida black bears from the state's list of threatened species -- a sign that these unique bears were no longer at risk of imminent extinction. What it didn't mean is that these bears were in the clear (they still suffer from habitat loss, genetic isolation and road mortality). And what's deeply upsetting is how the state could now propose a trophy hunt.

    Unless stopped, trophy hunters could kill hundreds of Florida black bears each year starting this October.

    Although offered as a solution for human-bear conflicts, hunting bears in the deep woods will do nothing to prevent bears in suburbs from getting into trash. Instead, state managers should let these bears live and they should focus on proven, nonlethal methods for preventing conflict, such as bear-proof trashcans.

    Take action below --  urge Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to call off this hunt. Then join us at a grassroots meeting in your area June 16, 17 or 18 and attend the next commission meeting in Sarasota on June 24.
  • HELP BRING BACK OUR BEARS
    California flagGrizzly bears once roamed across California for centuries -- from the state's mountains to its valleys and beaches. But decades of persecution drove them off the landscape, and the last grizzly in California was tragically shot in 1924.

    Now it's time to bring the bears back.

    We're calling on the California Fish and Wildlife Commission to consider options to reintroduce grizzlies in California's Sierra Nevada, where there are 8,000 square miles of prime habitat.

    Grizzlies today survive in just a few pockets in the Rocky Mountains -- roughly 4 percent of their historic range in the lower 48. If these endangered bears are going to truly recover, they need to be returned to more of their native homes in the American West (remote places typically far away from people).

    Please sign our petition below to return bears and a renewed sense of the wild to the Golden State. Grizzlies are so iconic in California that they're on the state flag -- even if they're no longer on the land. It's time to bring them back. 
  • HOW MANY MORE OIL SPILLS WILL WE HAVE TO SEE?
    Santa Barbara oil spillIt's the worst kind of déjà vu: On May 19 yet another major oil spill had cleanup crews fanned out along Santa Barbara's Refugio State Beach, stained black by tens of thousands of gallons of crude oil. The damage done to the homes of wildlife like pelicans, sea otters and humpback whales is heartbreaking.

    Since 1986 more than 600 oil and gas pipeline leaks, spills and other incidents in the Golden State have caused at least $769 million in damages, 200 injuries and almost 50 deaths. We will never be safe from tragedies like these until we end fossil fuel development altogether.

    Yet Gov. Brown, despite having declared a state of emergency in response to the most recent Santa Barbara spill, continues to support an expansion of fracking and other dangerous oil drilling in our state, deepening the climate crisis and increasing the chances of yet another catastrophe.

    Take action below -- sign our petition urging Gov. Brown to get us off this oil spill treadmill. Tell him to ban fracking and other dangerous oil activities in California.  
  • WASHINGTON'S WOLVES UNDER ATTACK -- HELP NOW
    Gray wolf
    Bookmark and Share
    In the past few years Washington's Department of Fish and Wildlife has acted in ways that seriously call into question the agency's motives.

    In 2012 and 2014, agency officials killed the Wedge pack and the only breeding female of the Huckleberry pack for conflicts with livestock without fully trying nonlethal measures. And since 2012 the agency has actively lobbied the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to strip federal protections from the state's wolves.

    Now we've learned that the department's Director James Unsworth recently wrote a letter to a congressman urging him to help strip federal protections from wolves in Washington wherever these animals are protected by the Endangered Species Act.

    The director's move reeks of backdoor politics, but its logic -- that killing more wolves will lead to fewer livestock conflicts -- is also just wrong. Washington State University researchers recently published a scientific paper debunking this myth: Fragmenting wolf packs actually increases the incidence of livestock depredations.

    Take action below -- urge Governor Jay Inslee to redirect his Department of Fish and Wildlife so that its focus is working with stakeholders to build trust through transparency, accountability and the use of sound science.
  • TELL TOP OBAMA OFFICIALS TO MEET WITH TRIBES OVER GRIZZLY PROTECTION
    Yellowstone grizzly
    Bookmark and Share
    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service continues to push to end federal protection for grizzlies that live in and around Yellowstone National Park.

    But tribal leaders in the West are calling on top wildlife officials in the Obama administration to delay plans to remove federal protections for Yellowstone's grizzlies and instead attend a summit this summer, both to hear the tribes' opposition to stripping protection from grizzlies and to show respect for their nations and cultures.

    Take action below to urge Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe to do just that.

    The request follows a Northern Cheyenne tribal representative being forcibly stopped from speaking by the state-federal grizzly bear committee when he attempted to announce the tribe's opposition to stripping Endangered Species Act protection from the bears.

    In a letter to Jewell and Ashe, the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council said the Fish and Wildlife Service has "continued to ignore" some 35 tribal resolutions and declarations raising concerns about stripping protection from grizzlies that live in and around Yellowstone National Park.

    Not only is an apology warranted after the incident in Wyoming, but it's time for the Interior Department to do what's right. Tribes have a longstanding cultural connection with the region's grizzlies and deserve to be fully heard before any further steps are taken to strip the bears' protections.

    Take action below -- tell Ashe and Jewell to put delisting plans on hold for Yellowstone's grizzlies and attend the tribal summit this summer.
  • STOP THE NAVY'S PLAN TO BOMB A PACIFIC PARADISE
    Northern Mariana Islands
    Bookmark and Share
    As part of a larger move to expand war training in American waters and territories throughout the world, the U.S. Navy is planning to ramp up war games on two islands in the Pacific's Northern Mariana Islands -- Tinian and Pagan -- a deadly proposal we need your help to stop.

    Under the Navy's current plan, expanded military activities will include air-to-ground assaults, live-fire weapons training, bombing exercises, and amphibious warfare. The activities are expected to destroy key habitat for corals, sea turtles, marine mammals, and the imperiled Tinian monarch. And of course it's also a nightmare for the 3,000 residents of Tinian Island, as well as the 3,000 native islanders of Pagan who seek to return after being evacuated due to a volcano eruption.

    And lest the Navy forget: as it works to protect national security, it also has a duty not to harm the heritage it's fighting for -- including minimizing the harm it does to endangered wildlife and habitat.

    Take action below -- urge the U.S. Navy to meaningfully evaluate all the harms of its war games and choose the "no-action" alternative that won't bomb these Northern Mariana islands. 
  • KEEP CALIFORNIA'S RIVERS CLEAN AND CLEAR OF MINING
    Suction dredging
    Bookmark and Share
    Suction dredge mining has been a scourge in California for years. This form of mining peppers rivers and streams with platoon-like rafts, each equipped with a motor and hose used to suck up gravel from the stream bottom. Flecks of gold are sorted out, and the remaining sediment is then dumped back into the stream.

    The harms of this kind of mining are many and well known. In addition to being noisy and intrusive, suction dredging muddies streams and stirs up toxic plumes of mercury -- making clear mountain waters unfit for people to swim in and for fish and amphibians to live in.

    That's why in 2009 California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger enacted a moratorium on the practice -- and three years later Gov. Jerry Brown affirmed it. Miners are still out there polluting our rivers, however, because of confusion about state vs. federal law.

    Take action below -- urge your elected officials to clarify this issue and reinforce protection for our rivers with a law requiring all miners to first obtain a permit under the Clean Water Act.
  • BRING BACK THE PANTHERS
    Florida panther
    Bookmark and Share
    Florida panthers once roamed throughout the Southeast, but today they're restricted to less than 5 percent of their historic range in a single population in South Florida.

    Recovery has been slow, but there have been gains. Today there are an estimated 100 to 180 wild panthers -- up from just a dozen or so in the early 1970s. These panthers, however, continue to face numerous threats due to our increasing human population and relentless development. And it's sickening, but dozens of these cats are still lost each year to collisions with cars.

    The limiting factors for panther recovery are habitat availability, prey availability and lack of human tolerance. Which is why any strategy to bring back this big cat must work to not only maintain, restore and expand the existing panther population and its habitat but add at least two new populations outside South Florida.

    Act now to tell your state and federal wildlife officials they have your full support to move forward with panther reintroduction. Then watch this cool panther video.
  • DOES YOUR ORANGE CONTAIN FRACKING CHEMICALS?
    OrangeThe Los Angeles Times just published a frightening exposé showing that some of California's crops --which make up more than half of the nation's produce -- are being grown with oil-contaminated wastewater.

    Please help us stop this scandal now.

    In the midst of a historic drought, Big Oil is making millions of dollars selling this toxic oil waste to California farmers desperate for water -- a deal which raises huge questions about the safety of our food supply.

    State agencies and local water boards test for some contaminants but not all -- and, of course, you can never find what you're not looking for.Scientists at Water Defense have proven, however, that methylene chloride and other carcinogens are in the wastewater that feeds these crops.

    Take action below -- sign our petition urging Gov. Jerry Brown to halt fracking in California and fully investigate this scandal before more companies gain permits for similar programs and cause irreversible damage to our crops and health.    
  • TELL @POTUS: #LEADTHEPACK, SAVE AMERICA'S WOLVES
    #LeadThePackAmerica’s wolves are at a critical point. Although they’ve been brought back from the brink of extinction, wolves in the lower 48 states today occupy less than 10 percent of their historic range.

    And yet politicians are gunning for wolves once again, eager to abandon 40 years’ of wolf recovery and return to an era of hunting, trapping and cruel persecution.

    It’s time for President Obama to stand up for America’s wolves. 
    Tell him today to reject any plan to strip Endangered Species Act protections. We’ve come too far to turn our backs on these incredible animals.

    Send the three Tweets below to President Obama and the White House, then sign our petition calling on the President to #LeadthePack and protect America's wolves.

  • TELL THE SERVICE IT MUST DO BETTER FOR BATS
    Northern long-eared bat with white-nose syndrome
    Bookmark and Share
    Northern long-eared bats are amazing little creatures that can eat their own weight in insects each night. But in recent years a terrible disease called white-nose syndrome has been laying waste to whole bat colonies across 26 states and five provinces. In several populations as many as99 percent of the bats have died.

    In response the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service first proposed safeguarding these bats as "endangered" in October 2013. But since then the timber, oil, gas and mining industries have mustered political leaders to their side and painted a picture of economic devastation if full protections came to pass.

    Unfortunately, in its recent final rule the Service backpedaled on its plan -- weakening protections and giving logging and other potentially harmful activities a free pass, despite the agency's projection that white-nose syndrome will overrun the bat's entire range in about 10 years.
    Take action below -- tell the Service that its plan to save bats by catering to business isn't good enough. The agency must use this last comment period to change course and give these bats the strong protections they urgently need to escape extinction.
  • SAVE OUR SNAKES FROM SENSELESS SLAUGHTER
    Eastern diamondback rattlesnake
    Bookmark and Share
    In most towns it'd be considered unthinkably cruel to have a contest where citizens catch and kill an animal with no limit. But in the Southeast two rattlesnake "roundups" still exist where killing wildlife is supposed fun.

    The target of the two roundups in Whigham, Ga., and Opp, Ala., is the rare eastern diamondback rattlesnake. Populations of the snake have been so destroyed that, following a Center petition, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service found that these rattlers may need protection as an endangered species.

    Rattlesnakes play a key role in the food web, especially in terms of rodent control. And because hunters often use gasoline to drive snakes from their dens, roundups are also harmful to hundreds of other species that share the dens as a home.

    Take action below -- urge the mayors of Whigham, Ga., and Opp, Ala., to convert their roundups into wildlife-friendly festivals where no snakes are killed.
  • PROTECT GRAND CANYON FROM PROPOSED MEGA-MALL
    Havasupai Falls, Grand Canyon
    Bookmark and Share
    When President Teddy Roosevelt protected the Grand Canyon in 1908, he said: "Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it."

    Such words ring hauntingly true now that Stilo, a multinational developer, is planning to bring a mega-mall directly to the Grand Canyon's doorstep in Tusayan, Ariz.

    The proposed complex near the South Rim would suburbanize this area around the park. But more importantly it would permanently alter water flows that feed the park's sacred seeps and springs, including Havasu Falls.

    The Forest Service is currently deciding whether to grant the access that would allow this development to move forward. But without a large public outcry, the agency is unlikely to stand up to this rich developer.

    Take action below -- demand that the Forest Service deny this developer right-of-way access and protect America's greatest natural treasure.
  • STOP THE TV SHOW WHOSE CONTESTANTS KILLED AN ENDANGERED SPECIES
    American crocodileA British reality TV show called "The Island with Bear Grylls" recently aired an episode where contestants killed and ate an endangered American crocodile. We need you to tell the show's producers that such cruel treatment of endangered wildlife won't be tolerated.

    Although nearly all countries with crocodiles now prohibit hunting, these prehistoric-looking creatures were driven to near extinction by overexploitation for their hides -- and now illegal hunting, as well as habitat loss, continues to threaten their survival.

    Under the Endangered Species Act, the American crocodile is protected as threatened in Florida and endangered in the rest of its range, which extends through the Caribbean and Central America into South America.

  • TELL CONGRESS: DON'T TRASH OUR BORDERLANDS
    U.S. Border Patrol in Arizona
    Bookmark and Share
    After the Dept. of Homeland Security invoked the REAL ID Act of 2005 to waive dozens of environmental laws and speed construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, the result set a dangerous precedent.

    Hundreds of miles of the border were blocked off with little or no environmental review -- and massive problems with erosion and flooding ensued, as did as a total breakdown in normal movement for the area's wildlife.

    Unfortunately some of our nation's elected leaders weren't paying attention. And now Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) are leading the charge to expand this shortsighted and disastrous waiver authority to include all laws with regard to all border-security activities on all public lands in Arizona. If they have their way, the Border Patrol will be allowed to run roughshod all over our national parks, forests, monuments and wildlife refuges. 

    This harmful waiver is completely unnecessary, since Border Patrol already has full access to these lands and has stated publicly that it doesn't need this waiver authority.

    Take action below -- urge Congress to oppose any legislation that would surrender the real treasures of our wild borderlands to the fleeting illusion of border security.
  • KEEP THIS CRAWDAD FROM EXTINCTION
    Big Sandy crayfish
    Bookmark and Share
    Amid the ancient hills of Appalachia, two tiny crayfish are neck deep in mining pollution -- and now they need your voice to survive.

    The Big Sandy and Guyandotte River crayfish are fast disappearing due to water pollution, primarily from coal mining. The Guyandotte River crayfish, a newly discovered species in West Virginia, now exists in just a single stream, making it the most endangered crayfish in North America. And the Big Sandy crayfish lives only in the mountains of West Virginia, Virginia and Kentucky.

    Both crayfish are sensitive to pollution -- and if you've seen the mining wreckage, you know why.Their homes are being inundated with sedimentation and heavy metals like selenium.

    Protecting the clean water these crayfish need will also help the people of Appalachia where public health has long been sacrificed to dirty coal. Recent scientific studies have concluded unsurprisingly that pollution from mountaintop-removal mining is associated with risk of cancer and birth defects in humans. More than 2,000 miles of streams have been degraded by the coal industry, which employs few people and perpetuates poverty by causing permanent damage to the landscape.

    Without immediate Endangered Species Act protection, the Big Sandy and Guyandotte River crayfish will be lost to extinction. Please help save them by taking action below.
  • TELL GOV. BROWN TO SHUT DOWN ILLEGAL WELLS AND BAN FRACKING
    Fracking protestCalifornia communities have been ordered to make huge water-use cuts to fight drought, but the state's plan gives oil companies a free pass to continue using and contaminating huge amounts of water.

    Every day illegal disposal wells dump about 27 million gallons of toxic oil waste into protected aquifers. And on top of these risks to our water supply, injecting oil wastewater underground can trigger earthquakes.

    We can't sit back as the oil industry continues to poison our precious water and jeopardize public safety. We don't need a gradual phaseout of these wells, and creating new loopholes to allow currently protected aquifers to be used as garbage dumps for the oil industry isn't a solution. We're suffering the worst drought in recorded history, and so we need Gov. Brown to immediately halt these illegal activities.

    Under Oregon's state wolf plan, once there are four breeding pairs for three consecutive years, the state can conduct a status review and decide whether to delist wolves from the state Endangered Species Act.

    And while it's true that Oregon's wolves have just reached those numbers, recovery of the species is still a long way off. A scientific habitat study has shown that the state could support 1,450 wolves -- but today only 77 exist there.

    Wolves in Oregon also continue to face threats to their existence from foes in the livestock and hunting industries, as well as from poachers. So before Oregon strips wolves of protections, it must ensure it has done all it can to eliminate these threats.

    Take action below -- tell the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission that wolf recovery is nowhere near complete. And very importantly, please be sure to personalize your note with a few sentences of your own in support of wolf protections.

    The Sand to Snow National Monument would protect some of the most beautiful and ecologically important lands in California -- from the desert floor to the 11,503-foot peak of Mount San Gorgonio. It'd also safeguard the headwaters of the Santa Ana and Whitewater rivers -- upon which hundreds of thousands of Californians rely for drinking water.

    Designating the Mojave Trails National Monument is also a must if wildlife are to freely move, adapt and survive in the face of climate change. With a few changes, this monument could help connect and protect lands between Joshua Tree National Park and Mojave National Preserve.

    Take action below -- thank Senator Feinstein for her leadership but ask her to complete her vision for protecting California's deserts by expanding the boundaries of the Mojave Trails National Monument to create connectivity between these lands.

    A new bill in the Oregon state legislature called the Public Health and Water Resources Protection Act looks to rectify a shared problem for both people and wildlife. For years the state has allowed clearcut forest lands to be blanketed with herbicides in areas dangerously close to homes, habitat and water supplies.

    The Act proposes the following common-sense reforms:

    -- Providing notice to communities prior to aerial sprays, so they and their animals can take cover and avoid direct herbicide exposure;

    -- Mandating buffers to protect human health, drinking water and wildlife habitat; and

    -- Ensuring that the public can freely access information after herbicide applications, so that, among other things, those who have been exposed can seek proper treatment.

  • FREE GLOBAL CLIMATE LEADER JAILED IN HOME COUNTRY
    Mohamed NasheedOne of the leaders in the global movement for climate justice has just been arrested and imprisoned in his home country. We need your help to free him.

    Mohamed Nasheed was elected president of the Maldives in 2008 in the first free and fair election following 30 years of authoritarian rule. The following year he led the heroic fight for a fair, ambitious and binding climate treaty at the United Nations climate talks in Copenhagen. He inspired millions through his eloquent entreaty for global action that would save his own tiny island nation from rising seas and the rest of the world from climate disaster.

    As president, Nasheed pledged to make his country carbon neutral by 2020, held a cabinet meeting underwater in scuba gear to draw attention to the climate crisis, and has worked tirelessly to address the coming mass displacement of people due to rising seas and climate disruption.

    President Nasheed was forced from office in 2012 by the prior authoritarian regime, and last weekend he was violently arrested and jailed on political charges.
    Please sign the petition below to urge Maldives' current president Yameen Abdul Gayoom to immediately release Nasheed.

    For the third consecutive year, the NRA has gotten the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus to introduce legislation aimed at preventing the EPA from doing its job by regulating lead that kills wildlife.

    Toxic lead has been sensibly removed from water pipes, gasoline, paint and other sources dangerous to people -- but tons of spent lead from hunting and fishing gear are still left in the wild every year, where they enter the food chain and exact a deadly toll.

    Lead ammo also poses serious health risks to humans who consume wild game riddled with lead-shot. Since effective, nontoxic bullets, shot and fishing weights are now widely available and comparable in price to lead, more than 250 organizations in 40 states are calling on the EPA to get the lead out.

    Don't let the NRA's politics of fear undercut our environmental laws.

    Indeed H.R. 884 and H.R. 843 threaten to reopen the door to widespread slaughter of these intelligent, social animals -- killing that could include more trophy hunts and cruel traps. We can't let these bills pass.

    Deciding when to remove Endangered Species Act protections is not the role of politicians, and so these bills would set a dangerous precedent and weaken this bedrock environmental law. Wolves would lose the Act's lifesaving protections for no reason other than being unpopular with special interests and extremists.

    International mining giant Rio Tinto's plans to develop a massive copper mine there would leave a depression in the ground the size of the Winslow meteor crater, drain the aquifer and destroy important streams, springs and wildlife habitat.

    Oak Flat is also home to numerous species of wildlife, including an ocelot that was killed on a nearby road several years ago. The area was formally withdrawn from mining by presidential order 50 years ago, but Congress recently approved a land swap that allows the company to obtain private control of the land and evade environmental laws in the process.

    Over the past few years, a rising demand for bobcat pelts in China and Russia has driven up fur prices and caused a boom in bobcat trapping in California. As a result, trappers have been targeting the boundaries of national parks -- luring the cats out of these safe havens and into their deadly snares and cages.

    Fortunately California's legislature passed the Bobcat Protection Act of 2013 to protect our parks and wildlife from such commercial exploits. And yet the problem continues because trapping continues in other parts of the state, and because the law has yet to be truly enforced.

    The California Fish and Game Commission is tasked with this rulemaking, and one option it is now seriously considering is a statewide ban on all bobcat trapping. But the commission will only choose that option if they hear loud and clear that we value our wildlife alive -- not trapped, killed, skinned and exported to be worn as fur coats in Moscow or Beijing.
    Take action below -- urge the commission to protect these ecologically important California natives by banning all bobcat trapping throughout the state.

    The Endangered Species Act requires science-based standards for adding or removing protections from a particular species, but recently Congress has used must-pass bills to dodge this process. These bills include unconnected provisions called riders that get forced through because the main legislation needs to be passed -- and now Congress has set its sights on gray wolves.

    Lawmakers are attempting to strip wolves of their protections via this underhanded, anti-democratic process.We need your help to stop it.

    Judges have repeatedly overturned rules stripping wolves of their federal protection -- with only 5 percent of suitable wolf habitat currently occupied and almost constant threats to their safety, these apex predators still desperately need the Act's protection to survive.

    In places where wolves don't have protection, like Idaho and Montana, ruthless killing is decimating their populations. And these wolves lost protection in 2011 because of a rider attached to a budget bill -- we can't let that happen to the rest of America's wolves.

    An exciting new idea to protect our planet from global warming is gathering steam. At the recent United Nations climate talks in Peru, negotiators agreed to consider ending virtually all fossil fuel use by 2050.

    This breakthrough proposal could help preserve a livable climate, but the alternative is grim: A recent U.N. report warned that global warming will cause mass wildlife extinctions and inflict terrible suffering on the world's poorest populations.

    That's why we need an international agreement that keeps most dirty fossil fuels in the ground and helps developing nations embrace a clean-energy economy.

    Dozens of countries support this revolutionary proposal, but the United States is holding back. As we move toward the Paris climate summit next year, U.S. negotiators -- led by Secretary of State John Kerry -- must take a strong stance against fossil fuels.

    Unlike humans, who have managed to spread and dominate nearly everywhere they go, most species are just out of luck once left without a home.

    That's why the situation is now so grim for many South Florida natives, including the Florida bonneted bat and several other federally protected plants and butterflies. Unchecked urban and agricultural sprawl have destroyed all but 2 percent of their increasingly rare pine rockland homes.

    Now construction of the ironically named Coral Reef Commons (a shopping mall anchored by a Walmart) and Miami Wilds (yet another Florida theme park) on this rare habitat adds insult to injury. And one species -- the fierce, mandible-mashing Miami tiger beetle -- was recently thought extinct until it was rediscovered nestled between the mall and theme park's footprint.

    In January 2015 Miami-Dade County commissioners will vote on a proposal that would label this rare pine rockland habitat a "blight" and a "slum," which could give developers a tax break and social license to destroy the land.

    A deadly skin-eating fungus calledBatrachochytrium salamandrivorans (literally "devouring salamanders"), or Bsal, is spreading like wildfire in Europe and could soon jump to the United States through the pet trade.

    With a mortality rate of 96 percent, the new fungus has practically wiped out fire salamanders in the Netherlands. Lab tests show that the fungus is fatal to American salamanders, and infected salamanders have been documented in the pet trade.

    Once the disease enters wild populations, it'll be near-impossible to stop.

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has the power to prevent this invasion. Under the Lacey Act, the agency can suspend the import of all salamanders unless screened with a DNA test.

    When Franklin Roosevelt first proposed to protect Utah's canyon country in 1936, he envisioned a 4.5-million-acre area. But when Congress finally designated Canyonlands National Park in 1964, political pressure had whittled it down to just 257,000 acres.

    Today much of the land around Canyonlands is still wild. Narrow canyons cradle endangered species like southwestern willow flycatchers and yellow-billed cuckoos. Four rivers sustain highly endangered fish and provide water to 40 million Americans. And stark geology and sacred American Indian sites reveal a deep history. 

    But the march of industrialization is at the doorstep. Rampant fossil fuel development, mining and uncontrolled ORV use are pushing farther and farther into these remote wildlands, threatening to rob them of their wildness.

    For the 2.5 million people who visit California's Point Reyes National Seashore every year, a major attraction is the chance to catch sight of the area's magnificent tule elk, reintroduced in 1978 after being wiped out more than a century before.

    But now ranchers who enjoy subsidized grazing leases in the park are targeting the elk for eating grass they believe rightly belongs to their cattle -- and they're even characterizing the native elk as "invasive."

    Ranchers are pressuring the National Park Service to remove elk or build large fences to keep them out of ranching areas, and supposedly "green" politicians such as Marin County Supervisor Steve Kinsey and Northern California Congressman Jared Huffman are joining them.

    The manufactured elk controversy comes as the Park Service is initiating a planning process for the 18,000 acres of cattle ranches in the park, and considering extending ranching leases for up to 20 years.

    Washington's state wolf plan was adopted by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission in 2011 after being assembled over five years to incorporate the views of thousands of stakeholders and scientists. This plan is central to the state's efforts to recover wolves and minimize conflicts -- especially with commercial livestock operators, often opposed to wolf recovery.

    But the plan keeps being undermined by the commission and the state wildlife agency -- who have adopted new rules to expand who can kill wolves and under what circumstances.

    This summer the Center for Biological Diversity and allies petitioned the commission to adopt rules that would make key parts of the wolf plan enforceable. We asked for guidelines that ensure wolves are only killed when depredating livestock has become a chronic problem and that require ranchers to take nonlethal steps to protect their livestock before any wolf-caused losses could result in a wolf being killed. But on Aug. 1, the commission denied our petition.

    Now we're taking our case to the governor.

    Please join us and take action now to urge Governor Jay Inslee to protect wolves with strong, legally enforceable rules that honor the state's wolf plan.

    Outside of Everglades National Park, the lush habitat provided by pine rockland forest is becoming increasingly rare in south Florida.

    Due to urban sprawl and relentless development, this type of habitat has been reduced to just 2 percent of its original amount.And last month the University of Miami sold 88 acres of this rare habitat to Ram Realty Services -- a developer with plans to build yet another strip mall full of chains like Walmart, Chili's and Chick-fil-A.

    We can't let this happen. This land is special; it provides some of the last remaining acres for rare and imperiled plants and wildlife like the Florida bonneted bat as well as the Florida leafwing and Bartram's scrub-hairstreak, two butterflies that just received Endangered Species Act protection.

    Take action below -- tell Ram we don't need another Walmart. What we need is for our native species to thrive without the constant threat of losing their homes.

    Hurricane Sandy's lethal walls of water inflicted horrific devastation on New York and New Jersey in 2012. But future storms could be even deadlier because of higher ocean levels caused by manmade climate change
     
    Rising oceans pose a deadly threat to America's coastal communities. As global warming accelerates, sea-level rise increases the damage and danger from flooding and storm surges.

    If the climate crisis is left unchecked, we could suffer as much as 4 feet of sea-level rise and 10 degrees Fahrenheit of warming by century's end. And wildlife is also at risk: A recent analysis found that sea-level rise threatens hundreds of U.S. animal species.

    But it's not too late to protect our coastal communities if we join together and take immediate action. The science is clear: We need to move much more quickly to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

    Please urge President Obama to make the ambitious carbon pollution cuts we need to fight global warming and sea-level rise.

    In recent years, following the loss of federal protections for gray wolves in the northern Rockies and a great rise in the price of bobcat hides, the state of Idaho has issued an increasing number of trapping licenses.

    This has been bad news for Canada lynx -- which look very similar to bobcats. Three of the state's estimated 100 lynx have been caught in traps since 2012, one of which was mistaken for a bobcat and killed. And while other states have already passed measures to keep this from happening, Idaho's wildlife agencies have turned a blind eye to the problem.

    It's also likely that many more lynx are being trapped -- as well as other imperiled species like wolverines and fisher cats -- but due to flaws in the existing rules, these trappings aren't reported.

    The Grand Canyon is a breathtaking, awe-inspiring site visited by millions of people each year. And thanks to President Teddy Roosevelt, who first acknowledged the need to protect our country's wild places, the canyon was protected as a national monument in 1908 and as a national park in 1919.

    But tragically the lands surrounding the canyon remain unprotected and open to exploitation.Centuries-old ponderosa pines that provide habitat for the Kaibab squirrel and northern goshawk continue to be cut down. Off-road vehicle users tear through fragile soils and vegetation. Inappropriate livestock grazing erodes riparian areas. And uranium-mining pits mar the landscape and pollute a source of much of the Southwest's drinking water.

    Fortunately there is something we can do about it: We can urge President Obama to use his power under the Antiquities Act to fulfill Roosevelt's vision and forever protect these lands for future generations.

    Take action below -- tell Obama to leave a legacy we can all be proud of by designating the Grand Canyon watershed as a national monument.

    Bearded seals live in icy Arctic oceans and they use their long, lush mustaches to find clams on the seafloor. They desperately need Arctic sea ice floes for giving birth and raising their pups. That sea ice is rapidly disappearing because of global warming.

    Fortunately, the federal government recently gave bearded seals protections as an endangered species because global warming is rapidly melting their sea-ice nurseries. These protections will help reduce dangers to the seals and drive government action to fight climate change.

    Unfortunately, the state of Alaska is working to block these critical protections.

    Polar bears are dying. As global warming accelerates, the sea ice they depend on for survival is literally melting away. Bears are starving and drowning as they have to swim farther and farther to reach solid ice. Some are even turning to cannibalism in a desperate search for food. Those trapped on land hundreds of miles from the nearest ice often wander near villages in search of food and are shot.

    Two-thirds of all polar bears -- including all bears in Alaska -- could be extinct by 2050 if current trends continue. The rest of the species could be gone by the end of the century.

    But it's not too late to save the polar bear if we join together and take immediate action. The science is clear: We know what needs to be done -- we just need to build the political support to do it.

    Asphalt Ridge in Utah is on its way to becoming the first large-scale tar sands extraction site in the United States -- unless we stop the Bureau of Land Management from leasing the land to foreign oil companies. 

    If the project gets the green light, a Canadian corporation hopes to begin producing tar sands from a pilot facility in the Asphalt Ridge deposit near Vernal, Utah. And that's only the beginning: The company plans to ramp up production to commercial levels if funding is secured. The extraction and burning of tar sands oil would destroy wildlife habitat and contribute to the climate crisis. 

    The Obama administration recently released its third National Climate Assessment, highlighting the severe harms from climate change that are already affecting the western United States. The BLM's facilitation of dirty tar sands production on our federal public lands is irresponsible and directly at odds with the findings and conclusions of the administration's assessment.

    That's why it's quite the stretch for the fast-food giant to claim it will start sourcing its burgers from "sustainable beef" in 2016.

    At the rate McDonald's sells its burgers -- an estimated 75 per second -- the toll of that much meat production on wildlife and the planet is devastating no matter where the meat comes from. Meanwhile, McDonald's doesn't offer a single Earth-friendly entrée with plant-based protein; its only meatless options are limited to sides like salads and apple slices.

    McDonald's may not be the restaurant of choice for many environmentalists, but it's the choice of about 70 million people every day. This gives McDonald's a huge influence over the industry and the eating habits of people throughout the world -- and by extension, over our planet's future.

    Mohave shoulderband snails are unlikely desert dwellers. They're moisture dependent in a place known for its deadly heat. And they're exceedingly rare, existing on just three small hills in Southern California.

    Indeed, they're one of the Mojave's many wonders, and for tens of thousands of years they've managed to persist. But they're at risk now of extinction from an open-pit mine underway -- a project expected to last just 31 years.

    The problem is global as well as local, as mollusks are one of the groups of animals most sensitive to human changes. Since the year 1500, approximately 40 percent of recorded extinctions have been mollusks, including 260 species of slugs and snails.

    Without Endangered Species Act protection, California's Golden Queen Mine will continue as planned, likely killing more than half the snail's global population and driving this species perilously close to extinction.

    Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is the dangerous process of blasting huge volumes of water mixed with toxic chemicals underground to crack open rock formations and extract oil and gas.

    And the fracking-induced oil and gas boom has transformed our energy landscape, undercutting clean energy and furthering our addiction to fossil fuels while polluting our air, wasting water and threatening wildlife.

    To avoid catastrophic climate change, we need to leave at least 80 percent of proven fossil fuels in the ground -- including the majority of shale oil and gas reserves. We simply can't afford to employ a toxic practice that will prolong our dependence on oil and gas.

    Methane leakage from fracking poses a grave threat to our climate, as methane is 86 times more potent than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere over a 20-year period.

    And our public lands are right in the bull's-eye of this fracking rush. The Interior Department leases millions of acres of our federal lands to private companies for oil and gas drilling and estimates that 90 percent of new wells on federal land today are fracked. Many of our national parks, including Grand Teton and Big Cypress, are even at risk from oil and gas drilling.

    The best way to protect our climate, health and wildlife is to ban fracking. And what better place to start than on our public lands?

    Please join us in telling Interior Secretary Sally Jewell: Our national treasures belong to us, not Big Oil -- ban fracking on public land.

    The TPP would allow corporations to sue if they think their profits are in jeopardy -- even if the challenge to the company comes from a citizen-approved ban on fracking.

    Just last year one enterprise sued Canada for $250 million after the people of Quebec passed a moratorium on fracking under the St. Lawrence River. We cannot allow corporations to run roughshod over local communities' efforts to protect their health and environment from this toxic practice. 

    The trade deal could also encourage an expansion of dangerous fracking for shale gas by automatically approving future exports of U.S. liquefied natural gas to all parties to the agreement.

    Every year, millions of animals -- including endangered condors and bald eagles -- are poisoned when they eat spent lead shot or lead fragments from lead ammunition that's been used to kill wild game. More than 130 species of wildlife are being needlessly poisoned and killed. Hunters and their families are also put at risk if they eat game shot with lead ammunition.

    It's time for the Environmental Protection Agency to take action.

    The EPA can address these preventable deaths through the Toxic Substances Control Act, a well-established and time-tested federal law aimed at limiting exposure to dangerous substances like lead. This landmark law can be used to phase out toxic lead ammunition.

    Effective, nontoxic bullets and shot are widely available and in many cases are now comparable in price to lead -- there's simply no reason to continue to use toxic ammo for hunting when it ends up in the food chain.

    The NRA has been fighting common-sense measures to protect wildlife from lead ammunition. But, if we're going to save birds and other animals from lead poisoning, we must set aside politics and do what's right for America's wildlife.

    Turtles are dying off at an alarming pace -- rates never seen before -- under terrible pressure from habitat loss, road kill and other threats. But one of those threats could prove fairly simple to tackle: turtle races. Annual turtle races strain native turtle populations every year -- thousands of turtles are removed from the wild and raced at turtle races held in small towns across the country.

    It’s easy to believe little harm is done when turtles caught, then released back into the wild after the races, but the fact is that these races can expose turtles to deadly diseases. Those diseases spread to wild populations when the turtles are released. Ranavirus is a sickness causing particular concern; it has caused widespread turtle, frog and salamander deaths in 25 states.

    Many of the threats native turtles face are difficult problems to solve -- but turtle races have an easy fix. Just stop using turtles caught in the wild. Many towns already use creative substitutes for wild-caught turtles, such as river races using rubber turtles or races where people pull toy turtles on strings.

Each hour we dump one ton of invisible pollution into the ocean; if it were a visible, tangible substance like oil, we would demand that the spill be halted.Even though you can't see it, this pollution threatens our sea life -- from the smallest of plankton to the greatest of whales.

    The pollution is carbon dioxide, and it's making our oceans more acidic. Ocean acidification is linked to global warming in that both are caused by CO2 buildup and both threaten to cause unprecedented devastation to the planet's biome. The early effects are already here: Baby oysters cannot survive in waters off the Pacific Northwest, coral growth has been stunted in Florida, and polar waters have eroded the shells of prey that sustain Alaska's salmon and whales.

    Sign the petition below and tell the president and the Environmental Protection Agency we must act now to end ocean acidification. The science is in, and there's no debate: Ocean acidification threatens our marine life and coastal communities. The EPA has the tools to prevent ocean acidification from hurting corals, sea otters, salmon and whales, but it must act swiftly.
  • CHANGE RATTLESNAKE ROUNDUPS TO HUMANE FESTIVALS
    Bookmark and Share
    Each year thousands of rattlesnakes are removed from the wild and killed at "rattlesnake roundups." Rattlesnakes play a key role in the food web, maintaining balance in nature by preying on rodents, but hunting of snakes for roundups is pushing some species toward extinction.

    Please sign this petition asking communities to change their roundups to festivals where snakes are not hunted or killed. Several communities have already changed their roundups to wildlife-appreciation festivals, which generate important income for the communities and educate the public about the importance of saving native species, not slaughtering them. 

  • TAKE THE PLEDGE: JOIN THE BLUEFIN BOYCOTT
    Bookmark and Share
    Overfishing is pushing bluefin tuna to the brink of extinction. These magnificent animals are famous for their racecar-like speeds, but their population has been reduced to historically low levels by more than 80 percent since industrial fishing began.

    The government ignored the danger to bluefin tuna and gave industry its way when it denied Endangered Species Act protection to the fish in June 2011. After years of catching Pacific bluefin tuna before they reproduced, now Pacific populations are at critically low levels, having declined 96.4 percent from unfished levels.

    So right now the best way to stop overfishing is to vote with your plate.

    Bluefin tuna remains a prized menu item in some restaurants. Send the message that serving bluefin tuna is unacceptable by signing our pledge; then share this with your friends and local restaurants.
  • PEOPLE'S PETITION TO CAP CARBON DIOXIDE POLLUTION AT 350 PARTS PER MILLION
    Bookmark and Share
    Prominent climate researchers have warned that we must reduce the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide to 350 parts per million (ppm) or below in order to stabilize climate change and avoid global catastrophe. The Center for Biological Diversity, along with Bill McKibben's group 350.org, is advocating strongly for this necessary standard.

    While carbon dioxide isn’t the only global warming pollutant we need to control, it’s the number-one contributor to climate change.

    Please take one minute to join us in moving toward a real solution to the climate crisis by calling on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to do its job as science, the law and common sense require. Sign the People's Petition to Cap Carbon at 350 Parts Per Million today.
  • HELP SAVE OKINAWA DUGONG AND CORAL REEF ECOSYSTEM
    Dugong

    Okinawa is home to ecologically significant coral reefs that support more than 1,000 species of reef fish, marine mammals, and sea turtles. Creatures like the highly imperiled dugong, a critically endangered and culturally treasured animal, rely on these reefs for their survival.

    But the U.S. government is planning to build a new American military base atop a healthy coral reef that will likely destroy the diverse array of animal life the reef supports, including at least nine species threatened with extinction. Okinawa's coral reefs are already threatened by global warming and pollution: More than half have disappeared over the past decade. We must protect the reef and its inhabitants.

    American, Japanese, and international organizations have spoken out for this critical area and against the potential harm that the new military base would cause. Back in 1997, Japan's Mammalogical Society placed the mighty dugong, a distant relative of the manatee, on its "Red List of Mammals," estimating the population in Okinawa to be critically endangered. Our own Endangered Species Act lists the dugong and three sea turtles affected by the project as endangered or threatened. The U.S. government's Marine Mammals Commission has weighed in with fears that the project would be a serious threat to the dugong and other animals' survival, and the World Conservation Union's dugong specialists have expressed similar concerns.

    Construction of the offshore facility will devastate the marine environment and have dramatic consequences for oceangoing birds and coastal species as well. In addition to destruction of the coral reef off the coast of Henoko village, the planned base will deplete essential freshwater supplies, increase the human population in sensitive areas, and encourage more environmentally harmful development -- causing irreversible ecological damage to one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth. The U.S. government must abandon this plan.

    Environmental groups from both sides of the Pacific Ocean -- the Center for Biological Diversity and the Turtle Island Restoration Network in the United States and Dugong Network Okinawa, Save the Dugong Foundation, Committee Against Heliport Construction/Save Life Society, and the Japan Environmental Lawyers Federation in Japan -- have filed a lawsuit in federal district court in San Francisco against the U.S. Department of Defense to stop the base. While early success in the case stalled the project for several years, the Center and its allies are now back in court fighting to end to the construction.

    We need your help to speak out. Please take a minute to send the letter below to President Barack Obama, Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Ambassador to Japan John Roos.





The TRUTH will set you FREE.
