Save the Organ Mountains

Sprawl threatens this unique landscape that is home to two endangered cacti species, bald eagles and pronghorn antelope. We're urging President Obama to save the Organ Mountains from these threats by designating this desert terrain a national monument.

Program

Save Otero Mesa

Mining and drilling is threatening Otero Mesa—an important source of drinking water and critical habitat for 1,000 native species, including our herd of pronghorn antelope. We’re urging President Obama to save Otero Mesa from these threats forever by formally designating it as a national monument.

Our Water, Our Future

More than 85% of New Mexico’s rivers and streams are vulnerable to dumping and development. Now, polluters’ allies in Congress are trying to block the EPA from restoring vital safeguards. To protect New Mexico’s waterways, we need to show massive public support for clean water. 

Program

Go Solar, New Mexico

If New Mexico has the second highest solar potential in the country, why are we getting so much of our energy from oil and coal, which pollute our air, threaten the health of our kids, and fuel global warming? We have a plan to change that and see 100,000 solar roofs by 2020.

Program

Get New Mexico Off Oil

The environmental costs of our oil dependence are out of control — from the accidents and spills, to smog, to climate change. It's time to set this country on a path to getting off oil for good. We can get there by convincing our leaders to make new investments in fuel-efficient cars, new technology, and a first-class system of public transportation.

Program

Don't Frack Chaco Canyon

As fracking booms across our state, federal officials are close to allowing this dirty drilling near Chaco Culture National Historical Park, home to the densest and most exceptional concentration of ancient Pueblos in the Southwest. We have a chance to protect this special place—and keep it from turning into an industrial wasteland. But we have to act now.

Program

Clean Air, Healthy Families

New EPA clean air standards will cut mercury pollution by 90% and save 46,000 lives each year. The coal industry and their friends in Congress are trying to roll back these standards, but we’re urging Congress to let EPA do its job and move forward with its commonsense plan to protect public health.
