Washington is home to 268 species of endangered and threatened wildlife, and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is the main agency responsible for managing their protection and recovery.
But WDFW gets just 5% of the funding needed to save vulnerable species. As a result, budget shortfalls are cutting the programs they need to survive.
The longer Washington drags its feet in fully funding WDFW, the more it’s going to cost to recover endangered wildlife - worse yet, if they wait too long, we could start losing these species to extinction.
We can't wait even one more year! Tell Washington to fund the WDFW and save our wildlife before it’s too late!
Dear state lawmaker,
