Save the Atlantic Salmon

Maine is home to the last wild Atlantic salmon populations in the United States, but the endangered fish are nearly extinct in the Kennebec and Androscoggin rivers, which provide key spawning habitat and migration routes. We’ve turned to the courts to protect the salmon and our natural heritage.

Protect Acadia National Park

Our national parks have been called “America’s best idea,” and Acadia is living proof. Yet parcels of land within Acadia National Park are privately owned and therefore vulnerable to development — and when the land comes up for sale, the park lacks the resources to purchase it. If Maine's senators commit to fixing the Land and Water Conservation Fund, Acadia can get the protection it needs.

No Oil in Sebago Lake

ExxonMobil plans to use an antiquated oil pipeline that passes right next to Sebago Lake to transport highly corrosive tar sands oil from Canada to Casco Bay for export. We're working to stop this reckless plan and protect Sebago from the threat of a toxic tar sands oil spill.

Keep Maine's North Woods Wild

Gov. LePage wants to throw open the North Woods to development — threatening some of Maine’s most beautiful places, like the Rangeley Lakes and countless remote areas. But if enough Mainers speak out, we can convince the Legislature to reject his reckless plan.

Program

Healthy Farms, Healthy Maine

Increasing locally grown foods in Maine’s schools will help local, sustainable farmers and provide Maine’s kids with fresh, nutritious meals at school.

Program

Global Warming Solutions

Activists in Maine and throughout the Northeast are gearing up to improve the region’s landmark pollution program, which limits global warming pollution from power plants and invests in clean energy. With your support, we can convince state officials to strengthen the program so that Maine cuts more pollution and generates more efficient, clean and renewable energy. 

Program

Get Maine Off Oil

The environmental costs of our oil dependence are out of control — from air pollution to accidents and spills to global warming. It's time to set Maine on a path to getting off oil for good. We can get there by convincing our leaders to improve the energy efficiency of our homes and businesses, move people and goods more efficiently, and transition to sustainable substitutes for oil.

Program

Clean Air, Healthy Families

New carbon pollution standards will help protect our health. The coal industry and many utilities are trying to block these standards, but we're urging the EPA to move forward with commonsense standards to help protect our health and our environment.

Program

Build a Toxic-Free Future

Toxic BPA seeps into infant formula, baby food and todller food from the tops of jars and the linings of  cans, exposing our children—even in the first months of life—to a chemical with serious long-term health effects, including early onset puberty, obesity and even cancer. Join with us to ban BPA in our children’s food.
