Grants to this Grantee
for public lands protection opportunities  
Many administrative actions to protect public lands were delayed until after the 2012 elections. These include potential new national monument designations and whether to lease sensitive wildlife habitat for oil and gas development. This grant to The Wilderness Society would support the organization's efforts to secure protective decisions for ecologically important public land during the post-election season. The Wilderness Society is the only national conservation organization whose sole focus is the nation's public lands. The Society will use communications, outreach and organizing and public education as tools to help accomplish its protection goals.
