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 a barrage of dangerous threats that could be its undoing.
The Western Caucus, a block of anti-wildlife House members, has just announced yet another destructive package of legislation that would severely undermine the ESA, these bills contain deadly provisions that undermine the law, strip it of its effectiveness and compromise the role of science in the protection of endangered species.
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.
The Congressional Western Caucus should put effort into providing resources the ESA badly needs to save species instead of trying to destroy this highly successful law!
Tell your representatives to stop all efforts to rewrite the ESA.
