Yet again, anti-conservation members of
Congress are attacking our nation’s most rare and imperiled wildlife.
sneak attacks are coming in the form of policy riders attached to must-pass
spending legislation. The riders would deny Endangered Species Act protections to
deserving wildlife including the lesser prairie chicken and greater sage grouse,
prematurely strip protections from still recovering species including gray
wolves, and defund the agencies charged with aiding these rare species.
Join us in defending the Endangered
Species Act! Tell your Congressional representatives and President Obama that
playing politics with extinction is unacceptable.
Wildly successful, the Endangered
Species Act has prevented extinction for our most imperiled wildlife by
implementing safeguards based on science, not politics, for over 40 years. Yet
some members of Congress, at the behest of the filthy fossil fuel industry and
other special interests, are trying to undermine the law. They know the Act has
broad support, so they aren’t attacking it directly, but through underhanded riders
attached to unrelated legislation.
Help put a stop to these indefensible
attacks: join us in calling on our leaders to protect our most imperiled
Congress needs to hear from you and the
vast majority of Americans who support protecting rare native wildlife. Take a
few extra minutes and call your leaders too. Join us in telling our elected
leaders to defend the Endangered Species Act.
For the wild,
Wildlife Program Director
