What’s Next for Sage-Grouse?
On March 15, the Bureau of Land Management stripped protections from 8.9 million acres of sage-grouse habitat. With backing from hundreds of bird-advocates like you who signed our petitions, Audubon is now asking western governors to hold the BLM accountable to their mission of multiple-use. Thank you to everyone who spoke up for sage-grouse. It’s not over.

Urge Your State Senator to Help Colorado's Rivers
Healthy rivers help our birds and economies to thrive, but drought and climate change are depleting Colorado's rivers, taking a toll on birds, businesses, and other wildlife. The new bill HB19-1218 improves and expands an existing law to broaden water sharing abilities for the benefit of rivers and the livelihoods of those who depend on them. The Colorado House just passed the bill but now it must pass the Senate, where it faces opposition. Coloradans, please write to your state senator now, telling them you support HB19-1218.Take action
