Subject: BREAKING: Congress just voted to open drilling in the Arctic Refuge


Dear Reader,

It's unconscionable. After 4 decades of American support for keeping the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge protected from oil drilling, Congress has gone behind our backs to open the Arctic Refuge to drilling by voting for their wildly unpopular and secretive tax bill.

The bill contains a sneaky provision to allow oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, one of the wildest places left on earth, a haven for polar bears, caribou, musk oxen and thousands of migratory bird species.

America's irreplaceable wildlands have experienced a number of attacks in 2017, from Trump decimating Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments to Congress just now voting to open drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

We will not stand for this.

There are two things you can do RIGHT NOW to protect our wilderness and fight back against this harmful tax bill:

  1. Sign the pledge to keep fighting for the Arctic Refuge.
  2. Make a tax-deductible donation that will be matched by a generous donor THREE TIMES, up to $1,000,000.

The Wilderness Society will fight at every turn to protect the Arctic Refuge- in the courts, in Congress, and in corporate board rooms. But we need your help. Every dollar you contribute TODAY will go directly to our battle to save our wild places.

Your tax-deductible donation will fund the most important fight of our more-than 80-year existence. Every dollar helps protect our last remaining public lands from the Trump administration, anti-conservationists in Congress and their Big Oil cronies.

Please make a tax-deductible donation to The Wilderness Society right now. All donations today will be MATCHED 3X by a longtime friend of The Wilderness Society, who like you, won't give up in the fight for the preservation of the Arctic. There's no more important time than now.

Police look for 2 who vandalized Newport Cliff Walk

NEWPORT, R.I. —  Police are looking for two people who vandalized Newport's famous Cliff Walk with spray paint.

Newport Police posted a message on Facebook saying that two women had used spray paint on the walk on Saturday afternoon.

They posted photos of the two walking under the Cliff Walk, with one of them holding what appears to be a can of paint.

Police are asking anyone who can identify the suspects to get in touch.

The 3 ½-mile walk is designated as a national recreation trail and is one of Rhode Island's most popular tourist attractions. It runs between the Atlantic Ocean and many of Newport's most spectacular mansions, and draws hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

Dear Adventurer,
Breaking: The Trump administration is recommending lifting the ban on toxic uranium mining near the Grand Canyon.
This ban would have protected the area for decades, but once again, Trump is putting billionaire Big Energy companies like the Koch Brothers first.
I wish I could say I was shocked. But we're past that. All we can do now is fight back with everything we have.
This is desperately urgent, Dave. We are working on the ground and in Congress to secure a permanent ban on dangerous uranium mining in this iconic area and we're not giving it up without a fight. And if it comes to it, WE WILL SEE THEM IN COURT. Please, make an emergency contribution right now.
Donate to save the Grand Canyon region from toxic uranium mining with your emergency monthly gift NOW -- before this spectacular area is decimated by crushers and dotted with slurry pits.
We have taken on Trump and his Big Energy backers before -- and we'll do it again. With your help, we'll mount an aggressive legal strategy, target key decision-makers and mobilize our 3 million supporters to save the Canyon and the Native Americans who have already suffered decades of environmental injustice. Please rush your gift now.
Thank you,
Michael Brune

BREAKING: POTUS agrees to gut the protection of Bears Ears Nat’l monument #StandWithBearsEars

We must not destroy our natural lands, these landmarks are far more than magnificent splendors of nature. They are part of our survival. Our natural fauna helps to generate and clean the very air we breath everyday. We must all participate in protecting our future and our children's future. 

Corporate greed will destroy our way of life as we know it if we allow it. Protecting our parks reduces pollution and allows us a healthier air to breathe, free of inhalers, antibiotics and chemicals trying to mask illness and make corporations richer due to our dependence on there creations.  Cut the cord and get back to the basics!

The cycle of life is desperately compromised every time man encroaches on natural habitat.
