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.

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.

Wildlands Network is cosponsoring a series of events in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, which is in the immediate crosshairs of President Trump’s proposed border wall and represents the Trump Administration’s first efforts to move forward with plans to construct the wall. Photo: Katy Schaffer
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
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.

El año pasado, les hicimos saber que el estado de protección de la reserva Ajos-Bavispe se encontraba en un limbo burocrático desde hace muchos años. El lunes 22 de mayo la Secretaría del Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (SEMARNAT) finalmente la re-categorizó, protegiendo así a la extraordinaria biodiversidad de está región de importancia central para la protección de jaguares, osos negros, lobos mexicanos, cotorras serranas occidentales y muchas otras especies prioritarias para la conservación.

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.
