1) Take Action: Protect the Gray Wolf
After a decade of hard work and millions of dollars of taxpayer investment, the gray wolf population in the Northern Rockies is back from the brink of extinction.

Now the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to prematurely remove the wolves from the Endangered Species list. The delisting, coupled with aggressive wolf killing practices and management plans in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming could push wolf numbers dangerously low.

Currents action alert arrow Write Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne and tell him that you oppose the delisting of the Gray Wolf.

2) Take Action:Protect America's Wild Legacy
The Senate will soon vote on a bill that will establish much needed new wilderness areas and national parks, and designate wild rivers and national trails.

The bill also honors Cesar Chavez's life and work, which has inspired people across the country to fight for environmental justice.
