Nature

We all love our national parks and our iconic native wildlife. But our laws are not giving them the protection they need. Hard won environmental protections are being torn up. Our work as part of the Places You Love Alliance aims to strengthen federal environment laws. We’re working to:

  • Develop strong and effective national biodiversity laws
  • Develop strong and effective state based nature protection laws
  • Ensure effective protection of water ecosystems

Biodiversity Law

Many of our wild places and native species are under threat. We use the courts to protect them.

Rivers and Wetlands

 We work with communities to ensure citizens have input into what’s decided about our rivers and wetlands.
