Wildlife & wild places

Can you imagine a world filled with more wildlife and wild places? So can we. And we’re working together to make it happen.

Every minute, we’re losing two football fields worth of wild lands, and too many animal species face extinction. It’s up to us to turn things around. We imagine an America with more mountaintops where all we see is forests below, with more rivers that flow wild and free, more shoreline where all we hear are waves. An America with abundant wildlife, from butterflies and bees floating lazily in your backyard, to the howl of a coyote in the distance, to the breach of a whale just visible from the shore. Together, we can work toward this better future.

Report: 12,000 acres in Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest are on the chopping block

Federal agencies are targeting mature and old-growth forests for logging despite these trees’ extraordinary ability to curb climate change and President Joe Biden’s directive to preserve them, according to a new report spotlighting the 10 worst logging projects in federal forests across the country. One of the sales highlighted, the “Fourmile Project” in Wisconsin’s Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest includes a 1,000-acre clearcut that threatens wood turtles and American pine martens and is one of the largest logging efforts ever proposed for the national forest.
