Help Reduce Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions and Improve Habitat Connectivity
Wildlife-vehicle collisions are harmful to humans and wildlife and are costly to taxpayers. Every year, collisions between motorists and wildlife cause over 200 human deaths and more than 26,000 injuries. In turn, millions of animals die yearly, leading to degraded wildlife populations. These incidents cost taxpayers more than $8 billion yearly.
That’s why we need support for AB 112. This bill would establish an account to fund the development of wildlife crossings in Nevada. Take action right now. Urge your state legislators to invest in wildlife-friendly transportation infrastructure that will make our roads safer for everyone, including our wildlife.
Help Us Increase Access to Outdoor Education and Recreation
Nevada’s natural resources and public lands are not equally accessible to all. Low-income communities and communities of color face significant barriers to accessing public lands, open spaces, and parks. Although the Division of Outdoor Recreation was created in 2019 to provide outdoor education and recreation opportunities to underserved youth, it has yet to receive state funding.
Tell your state legislators to pass AB 128. This bill will fund the Outdoor Education and Recreation Grant Program to provide outdoor education and recreation opportunities for underserved students across Nevada.
Transportation is Nevada’s largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, with medium and heavy-duty vehicles being responsible for 30% of transportation pollution despite only comprising 5% of cars on the road. This pollution is harmful to public health and disproportionately affects historically underserved neighborhoods near trucking corridors.
Urge your state legislators to support the electrification of medium and heavy-duty vehicles by passing AB 184, which will fund an incentive program for electric vehicles in small businesses, underserved communities, and school and transit buses
Let’s end our reliance on polluting methane gas in homes.
Gas appliances in homes contribute to respiratory problems and Nevada’s climate targets cannot be met without reducing gas usage in homes. The state spends $1.4 billion annually to import methane gas, but by investing in renewable energy, the economy can be boosted, and good jobs created. Tell your legislators to support the transition to clean energy homes in Nevada!
