Endangered Species Act Is Endangered

After 40 years of providing federal protection for wildlife facing extinction, the Endangered Species Act is now itself under threat. A bill recently filed in both the US Senate and US House of Representatives (S. 1731/H.R. 3533) would weaken or remove many key provisions of the ESA. The bill would make the "endangered" status limited and dependent on political calculations rather than biological ones; it's been dubbed "The Extinction Bill" by Save Our Environment, a coalition of environmental groups that includes the Sierra Club. 

Tell Congress to oppose this bill, S. 1731/H.R. 3533, and all other efforts to weaken the Endangered Species Act, by signing the letter at SaveOurEnvironment.org.
