A Note from the Director
How can wildlife get our attention? Elk and trout habitats may be dissected by public lands takeovers, pronghorn and grouse are faced with reckless development, and iconic tribal prairies are devoid of bison herds. Wildlife is unable to speak for itself—that’s where you and I come in.

The National Wildlife Federation’s Rocky Mountain Regional Center helps you give wildlife a voice, and protects and restores a vital part of our Western heritage. By protecting public lands, partnering with tribes and connecting kids to nature, NWF’s work gives wildlife the attention it sorely needs. I greatly value your help in this effort and I hope you enjoy this update about our current work.

-Brian Kurzel
Regional Executive Director

Stamp Out Attacks on Public Lands
Stamp Out Attacks on Public Lands
The issues at Malheur Wildlife Refuge aren’t events unto themselves; they are a symptom of a growing problem across the West. This problem is led by people who believe public lands, and their resources, belong to them instead of all of us.

We all have to act if we want to be sure these lands are still here for our children to experience.
