Billions of gallons of fresh water are being used for fracking, and it's lost forever. With aquifers depleting along the Colorado Front Range, and diversion tunnels already siphoning off water from the arid and water-stressed western slope, can we afford the waste?

WildEarth Guardians is challenging the Endangered Species determination for the lesser prairie chicken because it relies on the optional protections of state conservation plans to replace the mandatory protections of the Endangered Species Act.

In March 2014, the US Fish and Wildlife Service designated critical habitat for jaguars in Hidalgo County, New Mexico, and the counties of Pima, Santa Cruz, and Cochise in Arizona but despite the designation, Wildlife Services continues to employs lethal wildlife management techniques in the jaguar's habitat. Wildlife Services is violating the ESA so we plan to sue along with colleagues at Animal Welfare Institute http://www.wildearthguardians.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=9567&news_iv_ctrl=1194#.U0LFYsfTboc

Save the date New Mexico: May 6th to Give Grande to your favorite local non-profit (us hopefully) because it takes a village to protect the wild earth. http://www.givegrandenm.org/#npo/wildearth-guardians

Unfortunately taxation is not an option in our society, but how the money is spent is. Send your email today to Congress: Axe the Wildlife Death Tax. http://www.wildearthguardians.org/site/MessageViewer?em_id=15381.0#.U01J3scwL6Y

Apparently google wants to map the wilderness. Check out this argument against doing so. The author makes a strong case, and as a group working to protect and restore wild places, including wilderness, we're inclined to agree with him. What do you think?

Back in the mid-1970s, Edward Abbey’s The Monkey Wrench Gang made Doug Peacock something of an icon of the new environmental movement — albeit a somewhat reluctant one. A writer and naturalist, Peacock says it has been difficult at times to live up to the expectations of people who still think of him as George Hayduke, the fictional ex-Green Beret and “wilderness avenger” of Abbey’s classic novel that he helped inspire.
 
But four decades later, Peacock is still in the fight, battling to protect both the western wilderness where he found solace after returning from the Vietnam War and the embattled grizzly bears that he says saved his life.

Tom Velben of the U of Colorado challenges many of the common assumptions about forest fire.
