Save this species from extinction

Kangaroo Rat (c) US Fish & Wildlife

The San Bernardino kangaroo rat species is fighting a losing battle against extinction due to dramatic habitat loss, urban development and more. Already, six known populations have been eliminated. Only three remain.

20 years of ineffective federal protection have failed to safeguard the San Bernardino kangaroo rat from the threat of aggressive development. Now it’s up to California and wildlife lovers like us to help this kangaroo rat survive!

Comments are due this week – tell the Fish & Game Commission to approve the San Bernardino kangaroo rat's listing under the California Endangered Species Act!
