Protect California's Western Joshua Trees

Our spiky, many-armed friends need help.

The Joshua tree is one of the most iconic species of the Mojave Desert. But it's on an extinction trajectory and has recently become an emblem of our society's failure to address the climate crisis.

Even in Joshua Tree National Park — where management is most protective and the trees abundant — rising temperatures are ravaging the species' chance at survival.

Tell the California Fish and Game Commission to grant western Joshua trees protection under the state's Endangered Species Act.

In addition to climate change, other threats include wildfire, drought, invasive species and habitat loss — factors which can combine and are often related. If we don't act fast, our spiky, many-armed friends could disappear forever.

Send a letter to state officials asking them to protect western Joshua trees before it's too late.
