Don’t Let the Rio Grande Run Dry

A Great Migration is in Danger

Help Save the Sandhill Crane and Donate Today

Dear clint,

Every year, sandhill cranes fly thousands of miles from their breeding grounds as far north as the Arctic down to their winter nesting grounds in the Southwest. This is one of the greatest migrations on Earth, and it happens in our own backyards across the American West.

But this ancient migration is in peril due to wasteful, inefficient, and unsustainable water use that is drying up our rivers. The crisis is growing on the Rio Grande and especially in the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico, where the cranes could end their great migration on a depleted, dry river instead of the lush floodplain upon which they depend.

Donate $25.00 or more today and help WildEarth Guardians fight to keep water flowing in the Rio Grande and ensure its life-giving flows reach key habitats like the Bosque del Apache.

The Bosque del Apache Refuge was created to save wildlife like the iconic sandhill crane. However, as long as we continue living beyond our means, not even a refuge can save these birds if the lifeblood of the river runs dry.

The sandhill cranes depend on the Rio breathing life into the refuge, and the Rio depends on people like you to save it.

Make a donation now to ensure that the Rio Grande has a right to its own water and that the call of the sandhill crane continues to echo through the Rio Grande valley.
