Everyday Actions


register to vote

If you're not already registered to vote, you can do it here! Online registration is available in 37 states plus the District of Columbia, and mail-in registration forms are easily accessible at your local post office or DMV. Call your local elections office for more details. Your vote is the single most important tool you have to make the change you want to see.


Write to media outlets

If you feel passionate about a particular conservation issue—perhaps one of the news items described above—consider writing to a local or regional newspaper. Letters to the Editor are effective communication methods, as they reach a broad group of individuals, including decision-makers and elected leaders.


contact your elected officials

Find out who represents you. When issues arise, contact your local, state, and national elected officials directly, so they know their constituents are concerned. Thank them personally when they vote, lobby, or speak up in support of important conservation issues. Attend town hall meetings and information-gathering sessions they host in your community.
