The Endangered Species Act is the bedrock law protecting the wildlife we love. It has been successful at keeping 99 percent of species listed from going extinct. But it’s also more than that. It’s the promise we make to our children and grandchildren to pass on our wildlife treasures to future generations.
But powerful members of Congress and their corporate supporters have this incredible law in their sights. Their true intention is to dismantle it – to take authority away from scientists and put it in the hands of Congress so that they can make decisions that help the special interests that line their campaign coffers.
