I have long admired the work of WildEarth Guardians from afar, for their sustained efforts to protect wildlife and wild places throughout the West. More recently, I've had the privilege to get more involved with Guardians, and I have been deeply impressed by the quality and dedication of their staff. Guardians is an organization packed with talented and visionary individuals who have the skills, intelligence and capacity to get things done on the ground. WildEarth Guardians' four key programs -- wildlife, wild places, wild rivers, and climate and energy -- address crucial issues while keeping in view the linkages among them. In a world where we are constantly confronted by images of environmental decline, WildEarth Guardians' vision for the future is hopeful and inspiring.
I have been involved with WildEaerth Guardians for many years now, and am continuously impressed by the quality of this organization and the dedication and passion of its staff and members. Guardians has always been a leader in the conservation movement. I am especially impressed by the Guardians' role in protecting carnivores and advocating for critical bioregions such as the Gila. I encourage everyone I know to become involved with the Guardians!
I have long been a fan of Wildearth Guardians, but I became even more so last year. When the gray wolf was delisted, MT, ID and WY allowed hundreds of wolves to be killed, many around Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. As a natural history outfitter in Yellowstone, I saw the effects of this slaughter personally. While I had been guiding guests and teaching about the conservation success story of wolf recovery since 1995 when the wolves were reintroduced, in 2013 I could hardly find wolves to see in Yellowstone after the first wolf hunt. Wildearth Guardians spoke out against the delisting under such unmanaged conditions. It is truly a group who helps the conservation conscience of our country.
I have appreciated and admired the work and perseverance of WildEarth Guardians for quite some time. They are a persistant and dedicated bunch! We are lucky to have a group of caring and devoted individuals like them at the frontlines for the animals and environment. WildEarth Guardians is the best of the best!!
I belong to several wildlife organizations and i notice that the WildEarth Guardians seems to always be on the forefront and gets the job done! They are great!
I have been involved with WildEarth Guardians as a graphic designer for 25 years. Needless to say, I have witnessed many evolutions of the organization as it persistently addresses the ever-increasing challenges of wildlife and wildlands issues both in the field and in the courtroom. I continue to be impressed by the staff's stamina, competence and effectiveness as they strive to protect and restore the environment in the West. Guardians is tenacious and has many successes to be proud of. I am honored to be associated with this group of amazing people.
I've followed the progress of WEG and their work in the Southwest for several years. I've been consistently impressed by the intelligence, commitment, and effectiveness of their work in educating the public, using the media, and bringing about practical change on the state and local levels where they count the most.
I belong to a number of wildlife not for profits. What I've noticed over the last decade is that WEG gets things done. WEG is often the facilitator for other orgs to make improvements that can be felt and seen locally. When WEG makes an impact which often allow smaller state and regional orgs are able to achieve their goals and help increase our enjoyment of nature.
When I moved to Colorado several years ago I wanted to become actively involved in a wildlife/wildlands conservation organization. So, I looked closely at all the organizations that work in the Rocky Mountain region and WildEarth Guardians stood out from the bunch as the most effective group. Guardians is bold, visionary, and most importantly, they are not afraid to stand up for their values. The staff is a hard-working bunch that is always pushing the envelope of what can be achieved. To me, donating to a non-profit organization is like investing in the stock market--I want to get the highest rate of return that I can find while taking on little risk. I think WildEarth Guardians is this kind of investment. If you are going to invest/donate to a wildlife group, Guardians provides the highest rate of return because they achieve the most success per dollar spent.
I love WildEarth Guardians! They get stuff done! I belong to a number of environmental organizations and WildEarth Guardians is one of the most innovative, aggressive and impactful groups I know of.
WildEarth Guardians helps protect wildlife and wild places in the west-and then some. They even put up the enclosure cameras at the Wolf Conservation Center in NY, giving all of us a chance to watch gray, Mexican gray, and red wolves live. They represent all of us in court battles with those who would seek to harm our wildlife. I am pleased to be a supporter of WildEarth Guardians and I know they are putting my money to good use. Thank you, WildEarth Guardians, for all you do!
This is a great organization with compassionate, devoted advocates. They were very responsive when I needed their input on a local issue that arose in 2012. Larger groups with more name recognition (i.e. The Sierra Club) didn't even respond to correspondence. WEG responded within 24 hours, and their assistance was crucial to protecting an endangered species and wetlands.
They have accomplished numerous legal battles, and they continue to advocate for wolves and many other at risk species. From my experience, WildEarth Guardians gets the job done and money donated to them is money well-spent.
This organization is on the top of my list for environmental and animal advocates. I just wish I had more time and money to give them.
