Research

Our work to protect clean air, clean water and open spaces always starts with research. The staff of our network examine problems and evaluate policies through hard-hitting reports, then use those reports to earn media coverage and build support for meaningful solutions.

Renewables on the Rise

Protect Endangered Species

We share our planet with countless incredible creatures, from the grizzly on the ridgeline to the bee in the meadow, from the wolf in the forest to the butterfly in our backyard. Many are on the brink of extinction — but instead of helping, the Trump administration is weakening the Endangered Species Act and expanding drilling and logging in vital habitats. It’s up to us to protect endangered species and the habitats they call home.

Organize

Jamie Lockwood started on staff on our Conservation America campaign team and immediately began working to save the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).
