Don’t Let Congress Destroy the Endangered Species Act
The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is in the fight of its life.
Powerful members of Congress have leveled attack after attack on this landmark law and it now faces an imminent threat that could be its undoing.
Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) is pushing forward with a bill to “rewrite” the ESA, this bill contains harmful provisions that undermine the law, strip it of its effectiveness and compromise the role of science in the protection of endangered species. It could also open the door to even worse attacks on the law from opponents of the ESA.
We cannot let the last line of defense against extinction for the Mexican gray wolf, the North Atlantic right whale, the Florida panther and so many more be eviscerated.
Senator Barrasso’s bill could be the linchpin that undoes the ESA.
Tell your senators to oppose Barrasso’s bill and all efforts to rewrite the ESA.
