A bold enforcement of existing environmental laws is absolutely essential to advancing the interests of the Wild. However, as necessary as agency compliance with existing laws may be, time and time again existing laws prove insufficient in realizing a restoration of the Wild that WLD’s activists, supporters, and members aspire to.
WildLands Defense’s activists and supporters’ on-the-ground presence, extensive experience enforcing existing statutory and regulatory regimes, and the group’s unparalleled conviction provide policy-makers a clear and competent picture of the conditions of our public lands and wildlife communities on the ground as they exist, as well as lend decision-makers the sense of informed urgency as to the need for policy changes into the future.
WildLands Defense’s founders, supporters, and volunteers have experience influencing policy affecting the management of public lands and wildlife in a variety of prominent policy-making venues including:
Administrative Policy & Oversight
U.S. Department of Interior, US Fish & Wildlife Service
U.S. Department of Interior, Bureau of Land Management
