Our Wildways depend on large protected areas like national parks and other federal lands across the continent as the building blocks of connectivity. It’s imperative these areas remain protected accessible to all, so that humans and animals alike can enjoy these refuges of biodiversity for generations to come. Photo: Robert Long
There is perhaps no other animal with whom humans have a more complicated relationship than the wolf. We have long feared the “Big, Bad Wolf.” But now, one particular wolf species—the red wolf—is in danger of extinction. Photo: Ron Sutherland
Una reforma de ley para hacer que los Pasos de Fauna sean obligatorios en todas las carreteras federales de México está avanzando en el Congreso. Aunque su camino a la aprobación va a ser un proceso largo y cansado vamos a trabajar incanzablemente para que se vote a su favor. Foto: Juan Carlos Bravo
A bill to make wildlife crossings mandatory on federal highways in Mexico is making its way through Mexico’s Congress. While it looks like it’s going to be a long and tiresome procedure to make this bill into law, we will tirelessly advocate for its passage. Photo: Juan Carlos Bravo
El congresista mexicano Germán Ralis presentó un proyecto de ley para enmendar las leyes mexicanas de carreteras, puentes y autotransporte federal, de modo que los cruces de vida silvestre se vuelvan obligatorios para las nuevas carreteras. Si se aprueba, 2019 podría ser un año brillante para la conectividad de vida silvestre en México. Foto: Wildlands Network
Mexican Congressman Germán Ralis has introduced a bill to amend Mexico’s Roads, Bridges and Federal Auto-transport Law so that wildlife crossings become mandatory for new roads. If it passes, 2019 might be a bright year for wildlife connectivity in Mexico. Photo: Wildlands Network
President Trump has formally signed an order modifying Bear Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in Utah. Take back your national monuments and wild places from the Trump Administration by contacting your Senators now. Photo: Bob Wick, BLM
In a leaked report, Interior Secretary Zinke recommends President Trump shrink at least 4 monuments and modify 6 others, opening them up to harmful special interests like mining, logging, commercial fishing and drilling. Join Wildlands Network as we stand against this devastating news and defend our national monuments. Photo: Bob Wick, BLM.
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
This past fall, America got a little less wild when the US Fish and Wildlife Service announced their decision to significantly reduce the wild red wolf population, which only exists in northeastern North Carolina. On Tuesday, the agency gave notice the start of a 60-day public comment period concerning their ill-advised proposal to pull back hard on the wild population of wolves in North Carolina. Now is our chance to tell the USFWS their plan will almost certainly condemn the species to extinction in the wild. Photo: Becky Bartell, USFWS
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 May 3, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a budget to fund the federal government through the end of September 2017. The budget now moves to the Senate, with a looming deadline of Friday, May 5 at midnight for a vote. Some news outlets and Democrats have publically proclaimed this budget doesn’t include money for a border wall. They are wrong. Photo: Wildlands Network
Sign the petition to tell Congress to build bridges, not walls, along the border. Across the border, there are already over 650 miles of fencing and barriers. Our borderlands have become militarized with checkpoints, towers and armed border patrol officers who drive across our public lands and along the border at will. All of this activity has caused needless deaths of both humans and wildlife in our borderlands. Photo: Northern Jaguar Project/Naturalia
Tell US Fish and Wildlife Service to stop playing politics with the lobo’s survival. For far too long, the Service has allowed anti-wolf politics to drive Mexican wolves towards extinction.
Inside sources indicate that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has decided to trap an endangered Mexican gray wolf living in the wild in New Mexico and put him in a pen, likely forever, as soon as his mate gives birth to their first litter of pups together. She could whelp any day now, and trapping would immediately be underway. Photo: Jose Luis Magana, AP
