That means declaring a climate emergency AND doing everything he and his admin can right now, starting with these 10 actions on public lands: wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
We don't need Biden to call what we're living a climate emergency for it to be true. We're experiencing it firsthand as extreme heat, massive wildfires, parching drought & severe storms. But we DO need the 'strong' action he promises. theguardian.com/us-news/live/2…
Drilling in the Arctic Refuge would “destroy the caribou, and therefore destroy the Gwich’in.” But oil development is just one of many issues that the Gwich’in Nation will work together to address this week. #ProtectTheArctic #StandWithTheGwichin ca.news.yahoo.com/gwichin-accord…
Bigger and more dangerous fires are yet another reminder of how important it is to quickly transition away from our polluting fossil-fuel economy and take a bite out of the climate crisis. Public lands must be part of that process. wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
As climate change and other threats put more pressure on wild nature—and therefore on people—in the U.S. and worldwide, it is vitally important we secure a network of land and water that lets species adapt free of undue interference. wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
After a rigorous land survey and performing thorough dendrological research, we have determined that there are at least ten trees in this photo. — 📸:@mcummingsphotoo 🗺: Uncompahgre National Foresoe
Not addressing climate change with everything that we have—including public lands—will only lead to more droughts and dwindling reservoirs, rivers and lakes when we and wildlife need water the most. wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
We're asking the Forest Service to protect the Boundary Waters from toxic mining, which would be an environmental and public-health disaster and pose “disproportionate adverse risk to Native American and low-income communities.” #SavetheBWCA wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
Over 40% of people in the U.S. reported living in areas hit by climate change-fueled disasters, just last year. The blog series “Public lands & the Climate Crisis” looks at the latest climate disasters to impact communities and how public lands can help: wilderness.org/articles/blog/…

ICYMI: National Wildlife Refuges protect wildlife habitat, provide access for recreation and protect clean air and water. We applaud the expansion of the Lost Trail Pass NWR and the benefits it will provide to Montanans and all that value access to nature! doi.gov/pressreleases/…
Roads can thwart animals’ pursuit of food and shelter, or even lead to an inbred population in the long run. That's why we need to conserve a national wildlife corridor system that includes road crossings so wildlife can freely migrate and survive. wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
"The biggest opportunity we have in front of us right now is durable protection for lands managed by @BLMNational." subscriber.politicopro.com/article/eenews…
A new wildlife crossing in Florida will help endangered and threatened species, such as the Florida panther, avoid 106,000+ vehicles daily. More of this, please! abcactionnews.com/news/price-of-…
People who 'want climate': ✅US House of Representatives ✅President Biden ✅The people of West Virginia + every other state We don't just want climate action, we NEED it! Show us you mean it, Senator. Get back to the negotiating table ASAP! subscriber.politicopro.com/article/eenews…
The news that climate investments have been dropped from the budget bill is beyond disappointing. The House has done its part. We strongly encourage Senator Manchin to return to the negotiating table so that the Senate can do the same. wilderness.org/articles/press…
"A sweeping assessment of 58,497 tree species worldwide that found that nearly 30 percent are at risk of being wiped out. At least 142 species have gone extinct in the wild.” washingtonpost.com/climate-enviro…
"Studies suggest millions of Black and Hispanic Americans miss out on the health benefits of being in nature. . .because they lack access to parks. Those add up to larger health costs." That's why we need #ParkEquity now. washingtonpost.com/health/2022/07…
Designating Castner Range as a national monument would create more trails and other outdoor recreation opportunities in the area, stimulating local economies while also boosting access to green space. #Castner4Ever wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
If wildlife don't have migration corridors clear of obstacles, their survival is at risk. Wildlife need paths between protected lands to ensure their protection and survival. bit.ly/3EHiq1p

"On behalf of the Pueblo people who have worked for generations to make our voices heard in support of protecting #Chaco, it’s time to give this historic landscape the safeguards it deserves." -Mark Mitchell, Chairman, All Pueblo Council of Governors abqjournal.com/2514762/its-ti…
The extinction crisis and nature loss do affect people. And though the consequences land with disproportionate impact on some—especially communities of color and low-income people—it will leave nobody truly unaffected. wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
We’re asking the Forest Service to issue a ban on mining in the Boundary Waters’ Rainy River Watershed, which is the ancestral home of the Ojibwe people and a landscape rich with wildlife habitat and cherished outdoor recreation areas. #SavetheBWCA wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
We stand in solidarity with Indigenous communities in the region who are working to protect their lands and waters, and we urge the Biden administration to consult them while engaging in a thorough, rigorous assessment of Willow’s terrible environmental and climate impacts.
“No other oil and gas project has greater potential to undermine the Biden administration’s climate goals." The Willow Project is a climate disaster that we cannot afford. wilderness.org/news/press-rel…

Did you know that over 60 million people in the U.S. get their drinking water from national forests? Many big cities rely on watersheds in largely undeveloped “roadless” forests, which are the forests least affected by human activity. wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
How can we can improve the odds of survival for endangered, threatened or otherwise at-risk species? Conserve intact, healthy public lands in key areas. wilderness.org/articles/blog/…
We are partnering with Hip Hop For Change for their 6th Annual Environmental Justice Summit on August 20th. Let’s continue to add color to the green movement! bit.ly/ejs22
ICYMI: Last week, the Biden admin. began its first onshore oil & gas lease sales, putting 125k+ acres of public lands up for auction to the fossil fuel industry—despite the serious deficiencies in the oil & gas program and the worsening climate crisis. wilderness.org/articles/press…
"There are so many people around the country who just want to feel a sense of belonging and be able to tap into the healing energy of a collective safe space outside.” But millions of people face barriers to accessing green spaces—we need #ParkEquity now. nytimes.com/2022/07/07/wel…

We also call on Congress to correct the injustice of this decision by amending Public Law 280, reaffirming tribal sovereignty and recognizing the U.S.' obligations to Indigenous nations. (5/5)
We stand in solidarity with the Cherokee Nation and all tribal nations in furtherance of their self-determination and inherent sovereignty. (4/5) narf.org/castro-huerta-…
It has the potential to unjustly hamper efforts to redress those crimes and make it harder to protect ancestral homelands and traditional ways of life. (3/5)
In addition to wrongly casting doubt on the ability of Indigenous nations to govern themselves, the decision reprises the U.S.’ shameful history of violent conquest, colonialism and land-theft. (2/5) washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/…
THREAD: Last week’s decision on Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta is an unjust attack on tribal sovereignty. The Supreme Court’s majority opinion undermines the long-held treaty rights of the Cherokee Nation. (1/5) twitter.com/CherokeeNation…
