Our Mission

Western Resource Advocates protects the West’s land, air and water to ensure that vibrant communities exist in balance with nature.

Jon Goldin-Dubois“You’ve seen wind farms that generate clean energy – we help make those happen. You’ve enjoyed the West’s rivers, like the Colorado and the Green – we help keep those flowing. You’ve admired iconic landscapes, like the Grand Canyon and Utah’s Great Salt Lake – we safeguard these places. We work throughout the Interior West to protect the region for future generations.”

 – Jon Goldin-Dubois, President of Western Resource Advocates

Our Vision

Western rivers and lakes will have abundant clean water to support habitat for fish and wildlife, communities and agriculture, and world-class recreational opportunities. The Colorado River will flow to the sea.

Our homes, buildings and transportation systems will be powered by clean energy. The West will prosper in a zero-carbon economy.

Half of western landscapes and habitat will be protected and connected to support thriving wildlife populations and unparalleled opportunities to enjoy the West’s natural beauty.

The West will have clean air and clean water to support healthy communities and vital habitat.
