Speak Up for Wildlife! Get your petitions to protect Arizona's Wild Cats

Arizonans for Wildlife launched a statewide campaign to ban the trophy hunting of Arizona's wild cats. Sierra Club is supporting this effort after decades of seeking action via the Arizona Game and Fish Commission. We need 230,000 signatures to qualify for the November 2018 election.

That is where YOU can help us make history in our state to ensure that populations of mountain lions, bobcats, and other wild cat species are sustained or in the case of jaguars and ocelots, recovered.

Kick-off events are this week!

Tempe Kickoff Wed., Oct. 11th at 6pm

Tucson Kickoff Thurs., Oct. 12th at 6pm

Flagstaff Kickoff Fri., Oct. 13th at 6pm

RSVP for the event nearest you!

RSVP to learn about the campaign and receive training as a signature gatherer. Stand with Sierra Club and more than 50 other organizations to date to protect Arizona's wild cats.

If you can't make the kick-off events, please consider volunteering for this important effort. You can sign up by going to

Sign Letter to Governor Ducey on Climate! Tell Him to Act on Climate Chamge

While the Trump Administration continues its efforts to roll back programs to address climate change, including the Clean Power Plan, and to remove the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, governors, mayors, businesses, and millions of people across America have committed to the emissions reductions in the Paris Accord. Please sign the letter to Governor Ducey asking for support of climate action and to make sure he understands Arizonans support action on climate change.

Ask Governor Ducey to Act on Climate!

We plan to submit the petition to Governor Ducey this month! Please contact us if you would like to participate in the delivery.
