It’s time to celebrate our public lands.
Our public lands make up more than a quarter of America’s landmass — a vast network of forests, rivers, deserts and grasslandsthat belong to the people, not corporations — and whose wellbeing we entrust to our federal agencies.
These are the lands we visit to experience beauty, solitude and quiet — to share time with our families, recreate with friends and seek out adventure. Our public lands clean our air, form the headwaters for our rivers, and cradle the wildlife and ecosystems whose health is linked to our own.
But too often the influence of extractive industries — oil, gas, mining, logging, and livestock — causes our public lands to be treated like their commodities. Damage to ecosystems, plants, animals and our climate can be irretrievable.
So we’re asking you to join us in a new social media campaign — called #OurLands — celebrating a better vision for our public lands — one that puts the health of our land, climate, wildlife and water first — and ends needless, harmful industrialization. #OurLands asks you to visit nearby parks, forests and monuments and take photos of the landscapes and species you value, enjoy and work to protect.
Our campaign kicked off on America’s 21st annual National Public Lands Day (September 27), when many parks offered celebratory events and volunteer opportunities. But that was only the beginning: We want all of you to celebrate public lands throughout the year.
Let’s get out there. Let’s enjoy the beauty of our public lands with family and friends, or volunteer for a day on these lands’ behalf — and show each other how we’re doing it with photographic evidence.
Post your photos of your favorite public lands on Instagram or Twitter and tag the Center using @CenterforBioDiv and add the hashtag #OurLands. Include captions about these places and the species you support.

The Center’s Endangered Species Condoms are a fun, unique way to get people talking about the link between human population growth and the extinction of rare species. With more than 7 billion people on the planet and counting, this is a conversation we need to have now.
Check out our Endangered Species Condoms Toolkit page for downloadable resources and valuable information to help you start talking about population, overconsumption and the extinction crisis.

The Pollination Project, an ally of the Center for Biological Diversity, provides $1,000 startup grants to individual change-makers and projects that promote compassion around the world.
Amphibians around the world are disappearing, and nearly a third are threatened with extinction. To better understand and conserve these animals, scientists need more information on their locations. And what better way to get the right info from around the globe than through people like you?
Fimmaker Josh Fox galvanized the world against fracking with his film Gasland. Now, he's doing it again with the sequel Gasland II — but this time, he's targeting another level ofcontamination due to fracking: "The contamination of our democracy through the intense influence of oil and gas corporations on our political system.
"The result," says the film's website, "is every bit as shocking as the first film."
