Protect the Endangered Species Act
Target: President-Elect Barack Obama
Sponsored by: Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund
For more than 30 years, the Endangered Species Act has protected wildlife at the brink of extinction. From our national symbol, the bald eagle, to grizzlies, wolves and California condors, our nation's wildlife continue to survive in the wild thanks to these protections.
But the Bush administration is making a last ditch effort to undermine the Endangered Species Act. Currently, federal agencies are required to consult with expert scientists at US Fish and Wildlife or National Marine Fisheries Service to ensure proposed actions will not jeopardize threatened or endangered wildlife. Now the Bush administration wants to remove this fundamental check and balance, putting wildlife in harm's way.
We owe it to our children and grandchildren to be good stewards of the environment and leave behind a legacy of protecting endangered species and the special places they call home. Please sign our petition urging President-Elect Obama to stop the Bush administration's last ditch efforts to undermine the Endangered Species Act.
