WildEarth Guardians


WildEarth Guardians protects and restores wildlife, wild rivers, and wild places in the American West. We have four programs focusing on wildlifewild placeswild rivers, and climate and energy.

WildEarth Guardians’ four programs work to bring people, science, and the law together in defense of the American West’s rivers, forests, deserts, grasslands, and the delicate web of life to which we are all inextricably linked.


Our Wildlife Program focuses on preventing extinction and promoting recovery of imperiled native plants and animals across the West and beyond.

Wild Places

Our Wild Places Program protects both public and private land from a myriad of destructive practices and restores previously damaged areas.

Wild Rivers

Our Wild Rivers Program advocated for clean, free-flowing rivers and healthy streamside habitats.

Climate and Energy

Our Climate and Energy program is addressing the climate crisis by challenging fossil fuel extraction and use, promoting energy efficiency and promoting appropriate sustainable energy choices.
