During last month’s solar eclipse, our own John Davis caught up with Congressman Don Beyer on the Appalachian Trail. The Congressman spoke eloquently about the need for the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act, which would provide better connectivity for both humans and wildlife along footpaths and trails like the AT.

The Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge in South Texas is under immediate threat from the Trump Administration. It pains me to think that the U.S.-Mexico border wall could destroy every wild being that calls this special place home. Photo: Katy Schaffer
North Carolina’s News and Observer included a quote from our response to the USFWS’s proposed red wolf recovery plan, which reduces the current population of wild red wolves to a small parcel of federal land in Dare County, North Carolina. Photo: NC Hunting and Fishing Forum
The Washington Daily News interviewed Wildlands Network’s own Ron Sutherland about the dangers of the USFWS’ red wolf recovery plan, which reduces the existing wild red wolves to captivity on federal land.
We are often so overwhelmed, so paralyzed by the scale and complexities of Mother Nature’s woes that we don’t know how or where to start. In the Eastern Wildway, the answer is deceptively simple: Half Earth. Photo: William Gladish
Recently, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released a draft recovery plan for Mexican gray wolves. Wildlands Network has been preparing for this moment for a very long time. We expected to be disappointed by many of the components of the recovery plan, as well as its overall vision. Unfortunately, USFWS met our expectations. Photo: Juan Carlos Bravo
After reviewing key sections of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) Draft Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan, published earlier today, the habitat protection group Wildlands Network says the plan fails to adequately consider or incorporate the best available science, rendering it insufficient to ensure Mexican wolf recovery.

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
On Earth Day, April 22, Wildlands Network staffers and friends gathered with thousands of citizens in Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. to express support for science-based decision-making in conservation and policy. More specifically, we participated in the March for Science to support reason, fact, logic, and sound science as guiding principles in large-scale conservation work. Photo: Katie Davis
