Save Elephants from Extinction

Tell President Obama to follow through on his promise to shut down the U.S. ivory market -- the second largest in the world -- and help end the brutal killing of elephants.

Stop the Big Polluter Agenda

Stop the Big Polluter Agenda

Leaders of the new Congress are now embracing a Big Polluter Agenda that would give America's global warming polluters a free pass to drive more climate chaos. Tell President Obama to act now to protect our climate, environment and health.

Defend Our Nation’s Waterways Against Big Polluters

Defend Our Nation’s Waterways Against Big Polluters

Countless streams, ponds and wetlands, including waterways that help supply the drinking water of more than 117 million Americans, are currently not adequately protected under the Clean Water Act. Urge your U.S. Senators to support much-needed Clean Water Act safeguards for critical streams and wetlands and defend our nation’s waterways against big polluters.

Stop the Navy's Assault on Whales

Stop the Navy's Assault on Whales

The U.S. Navy is conducting training and testing exercises that could kill countless whales, dolphins and other marine mammals with dangerous sonar and explosives. Urge President Obama to direct his administration to put vital safeguards in place that will protect marine mammals without compromising military readiness.

Tell EPA to Protect Monarch Butterflies

Industrial use of herbicides has exploded, killing off the milkweed that monarch butterflies need to survive. Tell the EPA to adopt tough restrictions on the chemicals imperiling monarchs and save them from tragic decline.

Protect Our Environmental Laws from Secret Trade Deals

Protect Our Environmental Laws from Secret Trade Deals

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) could weaken our environmental standards and empower corporations to attack climate policies in special courts that can review U.S. laws. Tell Congress to oppose the fast track of the TPP trade agreement.

Save Bees from Big Ag's Chemical Attack

Save Bees from Big Ag's Chemical Attack

Bees are dying at an alarming rate, and a key culprit is a highly toxic class of pesticides. Tell EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to heed the rising tide of evidence linking neonics to the collapse of bee colonies and impose an immediate moratorium on their use. Call on her to put the public interest ahead of the profits of a handful of chemical giants and save bees from tragic decline.

Tell EPA to Reject the Pebble Mine

Tell EPA to Reject the Pebble Mine

The Environmental Protection Agency has formally proposed restrictions that would effectively stop the massive, disastrous Pebble Mine. The agency has concluded that this toxic mega-mine poses significant — even "catastrophic" — risks to Alaska's spectacular Bristol Bay and its world-renowned salmon runs, abundant wildlife populations and Native communities. Urge EPA to finish what it started by slamming the door on the Pebble Mine and protecting the Bristol Bay wilderness from destruction.

Stop New Oil and Gas Drilling Off America's Shores

Stop New Oil and Gas Drilling Off America's Shores

The Obama Administration just proposed a disastrous five-year plan that would open up vast portions of our Arctic and Atlantic coasts to dangerous new offshore oil and gas drilling. Tell President Obama to protect these irreplaceable waters from reckless oil and gas exploration and drilling.
