We are appalled by the insurgence at the U.S. Capitol yesterday. Our staff who live and work in Washington, D.C. are safe, but to see the hallowed offices and corridors where we interact with our elected representatives violated was difficult for all of us.
As an organization that works to advance wildlife policy, Wildlands Network’s goals are founded on respect for the role of government and the rule of law. Our vision of a vibrant and sustainable future for nature must be supported by institutions that are stable, just, equitable and inclusive. We condemn violence as a means to advance a political agenda, and look forward to getting back to work with duly elected officials of all parties to better protect wildlife and wild spaces across North America.
