Defend nature: Ask Congress to donate oil contributions to gulf wildlife restoration

Environmental groups come up with a lot of inspired campaigns. Some, like Greenpeace and the Rainforest Action Network, are masters of eco-guerilla warfare, turning up at national icons or even in grocery stores with campaigns that make us think about deforestation, oil dependence and climate change.

Defenders of Wildlife is not such a showy group, but they work in their own way to connect the dots, trying to find solutions to wildlife issues. They’ve been instrumental in working toward peaceful solutions between ranchers and wolf advocates in the Rocky Mountains.
