Mission

Our mission is to reform wildlife management in the U.S. to be more democratic, just, compassionate and focused on protecting native species and ecosystems:

  • Democratic, because wildlife is held in the public trust and everyone should have a voice in wildlife decisions.
  • Just, because wild animals deserve to be treated fairly as members of the community of life.
  • Compassionate, because wild creatures are sentient beings worthy of our empathy and respect.
  • Ecologically focused, because of the urgent need  to protect species and ecosystems in the face of a global extinction crisis.
