Protect Wild Places

Protect Wild Places

Support grassroots groups working to protect landscapes and wildland communities.

Wild places offer a solution to mitigate the climate crisis, provide habitat to animals large and small, and are magnificent landscapes for everyone to enjoy, now and across future generations. Around the world, many wild places are under unprecedented threat from big corporations. Support the activists who are fighting back to defend these lands.

A feature-length documentary about America’s system of public lands and the fight to protect them.

Despite support from voters across the political spectrum, our public lands face unprecedented threats from extractive industries and the politicians in their pockets. Part love letter, part political exposé, Public Trust investigates how we arrived at this precarious moment through three heated conflicts—a national monument in the Utah desert, a mine in the Boundary Waters and oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—and makes a case for their continued protection.
