Help Win More Protections for Mountain Caribou

In response to work by the Center for Biological Diversity and our partners, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed more than 375,000 acres of protected critical habitat for mountain caribou in northern Idaho and northeastern Washington -- a victory for these rare alpine animals, but not a complete one.

Caribou once ranged across the upper Midwest and Northeast, but the northern Rocky Mountains are now their last stronghold in the contiguous United States. The proposed protected habitat should be expanded to include areas where the caribou formerly ranged.

Please write to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and voice your support for protecting more of the caribou's last habitat in the lower 48.
