Motivating Issue

Conservation of all species, not just humans. The loss of biological diversity is one of the worst impacts we are having on our planet.

Why I Belong To MEIC

MEIC is very good at seeing what’s coming over the horizon. They led on our subdivision and streambed laws, for which I’m very grateful every time I see an unspoiled view.

What I Want To Pass On

If you feel discouraged, that’s okay. It’s good to see the world clearly if that leads to action. Nothing is more important than conservation activism.

But the EPA’s proposal for Montana is weak and the forces opposing any carbon pollution controls are rich and powerful. We need you to show your support for stronger emission reduction goals for Montana and encourage our Governor and the EPA to support reducing carbon pollution as much as possible. <TAKE ACTION NOW>
