Arctic foxes are adapted to thrive in the cold winters and thick snows of the far north. But as climate change takes its toll and the snow-line recedes further north, the arctic fox’s range shrinks, giving way to the range of the red fox, which often drives out its more specialized cousins.
Your adoption supports our work to pass vital legislation that would help wildlife survive and adapt to climate change. It also enables us to continue to oppose efforts to open up the Arctic Refuge to oil and gas development and educate the public about climate change and threats to arctic species.
All donations support our work to protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you care about.
Named "America's Best Wildlife Charity" by Reader's Digest, Defenders of Wildlife has been a leading innovator in developing the most effective ways to conserve imperiled wildlife and wild lands for over 65 years. Your adoption donation will immediately be put to use where it is most needed to achieve these goals.
