We agree with Arnold Schwarzenegger! Some members of Congress want to attach a dangerous new rider to the Federal Ivory Ban that would drastically weaken efforts to crack down on illegal ivory. Tell your lawmakers to stand up for elephants. Terminate the ivory trade. http://bit.ly/noivoryrider

"Deforestation represents around 15 percent of global emissions, more than all the cars and trucks in the world combined," writes WCS President and CEO Cristián Samper, while intact forests, like those found in Madagascar's Makira Natural Park, hold huge potential to keep carbon locked up where it belongs. #COP21  
Deforestation contributes more carbon to the atmosphere than the world's cars and trucks combined—and the biodiversity-rich forests of the planet's fourth-largest island are under attack

Great News! The House passed the Global Anti-Poaching Act. Thanks Reps. Royce & Engel for championing the bill. Call your US Senators in support of the House-passed bill to protect elephants from poaching and trafficking.

Saving Wildlife and Wild Places
Introduction
The Wildlife Conservation Society, founded in 1895, has the clear mission to save wildlife and wild places across the globe. Our story began in the early 1900’s when we successfully helped the American bison recover on the Western Plains. Today, we protect many of the world’s iconic creatures here and abroad, including gorillas in the Congotigers in Indiawolverines in the Yellowstone Rockies, and ocean giants in our world’s amazing seascapes.
