What Better Gift than the Gift of Wilderness on Giving Tuesday!

Giving Tuesday

 

Last year on Giving Tuesday, you answered our call to help stop a gold mine in the famed River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho. This past summer, a federal judge halted the Golden Hand Mine, deciding the Forest Service’s approval of extensive drilling, bulldozing, and road construction violated the Wilderness Act, the National Forest Management Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act. Thank you for helping make this victory possible.

Gray wolf John and Karen HollingsworthUSFWSThis year on Giving Tuesday, join us in standing up for wildlife in national parks, preserves, and wildlife refuges in Alaska

This past summer, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published final regulations governing the killing of bears, wolves, coyotes, and wolverines in national wildlife refuges in Alaska—including nearly 20 million acres of Wilderness. The new regulations will help protect wildlife, and your letters helped make this happen. But now the battle has shifted to Congress, with Alaska’s representatives pushing legislation to overturn this new rule plus a similar rule adopted by the National Park Service for national parks and preserves in Alaska.

Please join us in this fight to fend off legislative attempts to undo the progress that has been made.

Wilderness Watch will continue to advocate for even stronger safeguards to protect wildlife and to ensure that natural processes are allowed to shape our national wildlife refuges and designated Wildernesses in Alaska and throughout the country.
