“Embattled Borderlands” takes you on a virtual journey through the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, where native wildlife, wildlands, and human communities are jeopardized by the border wall. Photo: Juan Carlos Bravo
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.

Last year, we let you know the protected status of the Ajos-Bavispe reserve in the borderlands of Sonora had been in bureaucratic limbo for several years. On Monday, May 22, the Mexican government finally recategorized it, protecting the unique biodiversity of this core area for the protection of jaguars, black bears, Mexican wolves, thick-billed parrots and many other species listed in one or both countries along the border.

On April 26, President Trump signed an executive order instructing Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke to review all national monuments created since Jan. 1, 1996 and spanning at least 100,000 acres. This radical executive order, which allows for a sweeping review of 27 protected places, is an attack on all public lands. Now is the time to raise our voices and take action to protect these imperiled places and the wildlife relying on them for their existence. Photo: Bob Wick, Bureau of Land Mangagement
