Don’t play politics with sage-grouse protections!

Knuckling under to ranching and oil industry lobbyists, Congress has inserted a measure that would bar the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from taking any action to protect imperiled greater sage-grouse. Habitat loss and degradation has driven many of these birds to the brink of extinction.

It is simply outrageous that Congress would include such a grossly irresponsible rider on this Omnibus. This is yet another example of the recent political attacks on our nation’s wildlife and natural heritage with Congress once again meddling in what should be science-driven decision making and ultimately placing an imperiled species at grave risk.

Tell Congress and President Obama to stop playing politics with our nation’s wildlife!
