Top Victories in 2015
Our efforts result in real, on-the-ground changes that defend ecosystems and communities across the West. These are our top victories for 2015.
We kept 170 million tons of coal in the ground by halting expansion of the dirty, polluting Bull Mountain Coal Mine in Montana.
We saved more than 150,000 acres of vital forest lands, spotted owls, and salmon from an irresponsible logging project in northern California.
We kept 12 million tons of coal in the ground by blocking expanded coal mining at the Navajo Mine in New Mexico.
We protected imperiled Western predators from trapping, safeguarding Canada lynx and wolverine.
We forced Washington state to aggressively fight climate change, representing eight youths as our clients.
We stopped a nearly 3,000-acre fracking lease sale near Chaco Canyon, an UNESCO World Heritage Site in New Mexico.
These victories and numerous others were made possible by our supporters. Thank you!
