Speak Out Against Attacks on the Endangered Species Act

Action: Wildlife Conservation

February 4, 2013   Action Alert ID# 43

 

It's hard to understand how some in Congress think they were elected to sacrifice our wildest and most vulnerable creatures for political gain. This session, Congress took aim at the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in the form of 13 different provisions that would strip funding and authority away from the ESA and its ability to protect our nationís most vulnerable wildlife.

But, this grim anti-environment faction isn't quitting. Congress still needs to pass spending bills and when they do so, we expect a new wave of legislative attacks on the ESA and other cornerstone environmental laws.

A recent poll shows that most Americans agree on the importance of protecting endangered species. Ninety-two percent agree that decisions about wildlife management and which animals need protection should be made by scientists, not politicians; 90 percent agree that the ESA has helped hundreds of species recover from the brink of extinction; and 87 percent agree that the ESA is a successful safety net for protecting wildlife, plants and fish from extinction.

During the budget battle, we will be in the halls of Congress, as we have all along, to defend against attacks on the ESA.

Will you stand with us? We stand for keeping:

-The polar bear's Arctic Ocean homeland, which already is feeling the impacts of climate change, free from unsafe and risky drilling practices

-Salmon abundant and healthy in rivers threatened by political water deals

-The haunting voice of gray wolves echoing throughout the Northern Rockies, where for decades it had been silenced

Please take time now to tell your Congressional representatives to support science-based wildlife management and to oppose any legislation that would weaken protections for any American wild animal and the Endangered Species Act.
