Stop politicians from weakening the Endangered Species Act

Action: Wildlife Conservation

December 30, 2015   Action Alert ID# 317

 

The Endangered Species Act is one of the strongest, most effective wildlife protection laws in the world. It was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support more than 40 years ago to provide a legal safety net for wildlife, fish, and plant species that are in danger of extinction.

In all the years since it was enacted, the Endangered Species Act has prevented 99 percent of the species under its care from going extinct. The Act has prevented the extinction of the bald eagle, the American alligator, the California condor, plus thousands of other species.

Take action now to ensure this landmark law is not weakened by political attacks.

Anti-environment interests and their friends in Congress are currently orchestrating some of the most serious threats ever posed to the Endangered Species Act. Already this year, more than 80 proposals have been introduced that would put imperiled species at greater risk by:

Establishing arbitrary land boundaries where species protections would not apply.

Imposing limitations on citizens’ ability to help enforce the Act.

Undermining the use of science under the Act.

Declaring open season on individual species by blocking federal protections or denying existing protections.

And more...

Anti-environment members of Congress and their supporters in destructive and polluting industries have made it a priority to roll back protections for our wildlife, fish, and plants, and the habitats upon which these species depend. If they get their way, the Endangered Species Act’s vital protections will be cast aside.

Tell your congressional representative and senators to oppose any legislation that hurts imperiled wildlife!

Earthjustice and supporters like you have been fighting to stop political attacks on the Endangered Species Act for decades. We can’t do it without you—we need your help to urge your members of Congress to defend this important law by opposing all anti-wildlife legislation.
