Defend Pennsylvania's Endangered Species

Action: Wildlife Conservation

March 3, 2014   Action Alert ID# 135

 

Pennsylvania House Bill 1576 -- known as the Endangered Species Coordination Act -- may sound like a bold move forward. But in fact it would seriously set back state efforts to protect endangered species like ospreys, great egrets and Indiana bats.

H.B. 1576 would handcuff the Fish and Boat Commission as well as the Game Commission -- our state's wildlife experts -- and would grant the authority to decide which species are protected in Pennsylvania to the industry-dominated Independent Regulatory Review Commission.

We can't let this happen.

Whether or not a species should be protected is a question for our scientists and wildlife experts -- not a slow, politicized commission. Giving the IRRC this review authority would delay and deny protections for species that need those protections urgently just to survive.

Not surprisingly, H.B. 1576 is being championed by some of the state's most destructive extractive industries, including mining, fracking and timber.

Take action now to urge your state representative to vote no on H.B. 1576 and support wildlife experts and our state's successful endangered species law.
