1) Take Action: Protect Wildlife Habitat from Climate Change
WildLIFEAs demonstrated by the beautiful new Discovery series, LIFE, our planet's wildlife have adapted in stunning and amazing ways over millions of years. However, climate change is too big of a challenge for them to face on their own; we need to help them survive.

Last weekend over 600 activists held house parties to view the show and pressure the Obama administration to protect our nation's lands and wildlife from climate change.

2) Take Action: Protect Bull Trout Habitat
Bull TroutThe U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed safeguarding the cold, clean water habitats that our fishing families and angling recreational economy depends on, by designating Critical Habitat for the bull trout. Such a designation is especially important as the bull trout is an indicator species revealing the larger problem of climate change impacts on other fish.

Encouraging management practices that lead to lower water temperatures can improve the chance that our fishing traditions will remain for the next generation and help protect the multi-million dollar recreational fishing economy.

Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service you support a critical habitat designation today!
