Grants to this Grantee
for the Western Energy Project  
The Resources Legacy Fund’s Western Energy Project works to protect treasured landscapes in the American West by ensuring that any development of oil and gas from our federal public lands is done in a responsible manner. The Fund empowers diverse organizations to preserve ecologically and culturally important areas; support the adoption of common-sense protections for our water, air, land, and wildlife; and work to safeguard opportunities for Americans to enjoy our public lands across the Intermountain West. (Substrategy: Defend Public Lands)
for the International Boreal Conservation Campaign  
Resources Legacy Fund serves as fiscal sponsor for the International Boreal Conservation Campaign (IBCC), which empowers Canadians to protect the boreal forestlands for the benefit of people and nature. For instance, IBCC supports the Indigenous Leadership Initiative to help strengthen indigenous nationhood and fulfill indigenous cultural responsibilities to the land. The Indigenous Leadership Initiative is working with First Nations across Canada on land-use planning, designation of new Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas, and programs to fund Indigenous Guardians to steward these protected areas.
