Wildlands Network is reconnecting nature in North America.
Here's how we do it:

Wildlands Network leads critical on-the-ground campaigns to protect wildlife and wild places.
Current Apex Campaigns
Featured: Wild Cats Campaign
Over the past 200 years, people have brutally eliminated wild cats from much of their native range in North America, diminishing our natural heritage and damaging forest and plant communities as a result. Photo: Larry Masters
Featured: Red Wolf Campaign
Only 30–50 red wolves currently exist in the wild, all of them inhabiting eastern North Carolina. Red wolves may soon be gone from the wild forever unless the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service takes urgent measures on their behalf. Photo: Wildlands Network
North American Wildways
Wildlife needs to be able to move freely in search of food, mates, and secure habitat. We're working across North America to re-establish vast wildways so wide-ranging animals like cougars, wolves, and wolverines can travel safely through the landscape.

Wildlands Network is affecting policy-level change to help advance rewilding on-the-ground. As a science-informed organization, we advocate for new, science-driven laws and policies to protect North American wildlife and their habitats.
