We also secured 40 million acres of protected habitat, stopped sprawling developments in California, spurred more than 40 cities to join our national campaign demanding climate action, launched new initiatives to save our oceans, distributed 150,000 free Endangered Species Condoms and engaged our online supporters in taking more than 1.5 million actions on behalf of wildlife and our planet.
