With study after study piling up, the science is clear on neonicotinoids: These pesticides are one of the leading causes of recent bee die-offs, and national retailers like Ace Hardware and True Value that continue to sell neonicotinoid-treated plants and seeds are peddling dangerous toxins. Tell Ace and True Value to remove all products with neonicotinoids from their shelves.

Politics of Extinction
Despite its success, the Endangered Species Act is under attack like never before. Congressional Republicans have launched a barrage of legislative assaults on endangered species in recent years, seeking to block, remove or weaken their protections. Read our report.

What's My Name?
Since 2012 a wild, free-roaming male jaguar has been photographed more than 100 times by trail cameras in the Santa Rita Mountains, less than 30 miles from downtown Tucson, Ariz.. We need your help to name him. Vote now.

Nuestro Trabajo en México
Mexico hosts a stunning array of species, but too many are imperiled. The Center just opened an office in La Paz to help save sea turtles, vaquitas and other wildlife in trouble. Read about our Mexico work en español or in English.

More than 1 million California children attend schools near tracks used by dangerously explosive oil trains, according to a new Center analysis. To see how close these bomb trains are to schools, check out our interactive map.

Bring Back the Bears
The grizzly bear is a main feature of California’s state flag — yet for nearly a century, it's been missing from the Golden State, including in the remote Sierra Nevada. Check out our website and sign our petition to help these endangered bears return to California.

Historic Agreement for 757 Species
So far more than 100 species have won protection following our historic 2011 settlement compelling the feds to make progress on safeguarding 757 of the country's most imperiled, least protected species. More species are nearing protection now.

Generation Wild
Young people can make a difference too. Check out our brand-new Generation Wild website with tips on being a young conservationist, tools for taking action and a lot of fun stuff to read, do and see.

Keep It in the Ground
Ending new fossil fuel leasing on America's public lands and offshore areas would keep up to 450 billion tons of greenhouse gases from polluting our atmosphere, says a new study commissioned by the Center and Friends of the Earth. Take action.

Restoring the Gray Wolf
We're fighting to help all U.S. gray wolves get back the protections they need to recover in habitat across the country. Losing safeguards would bring their progress to a grinding halt.
