In this turbulent world, it’s good to keep some things as they are.
For millennia, America’s redrock wilderness has stood as testament to the wonders of the natural world. Places like Greater Canyonlands, the Grand Staircase-Escalante, Robbers Roost and Labyrinth Canyon are just a few of the wild landscapes the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) works to protect.
The threats to America’s redrock wilderness are numerous and immediate – ranging from the shortsighted development of dirty fuels to the epidemic spread of off-road vehicles.
Since 1983, SUWA has effectively held off these threats, securing some form of protection for over 5 million acres of treasured wild landscapes. Prior to SUWA’s existence – between 1930 and 1980 – America lost over 14 million acres of Utah’s wild desert lands. Fortunately, in the 29 years since SUWA was founded, with support from people like you, we’ve preserved almost 99% of the remaining wild country.
Eighty percent of our funding comes from individuals like you. This support allows our small, dedicated staff of field specialists, organizers, policy advocates and attorneys to do their work to protect some of our nation’s most iconic and imminently threatened wilderness – so it will be there for you and future generations to enjoy.
