Defend the Endangered Species Act

Ask Congress to do more for species at risk

United States
Endangered Species

Recently, the Trump administration released its finalized revisions for how the federal government assesses and implements species recovery under the Endangered Species Act. While the final rule can improve how federal agencies collaborate on recovery efforts for endangered species, we are concerned with changes that inappropriately insert economic considerations into the listing process and others that could reduce core protections for threatened species.

Rare and important species across the country, from the tiny piping plover to the majestic bald eagle, are increasingly at risk.

At a time when threats like habitat loss, increased development, and climate change are driving a staggering level of species decline across the globe, now is the time to be more proactive in protecting endangered and threatened species, not less.

We must ensure that the Endangered Species Act is well funded and defended from changes that weaken protections for species. Call on Congress today to protect this critical law. Tell your leaders you support the act and collaborative efforts to save species from extinction.

Uphold Protections for Endangered Species

Dear TNC

The Endangered Species Act is one of America's bedrock conservation laws. The act has protected our country's most beloved and iconic species, such as the gray wolf, grizzly bear, and the bald eagle, for the last 40 years.

One-third of all U.S. wildlife species are already imperiled or vulnerable. At a time when threats like habitat loss, increased development, and climate change are driving a staggering level of species decline across the globe, now is the time to be more proactive in protecting endangered and threatened species, not less.

I am writing to you to let you know that I support the Endangered Species Act and oppose any changes that weaken protections for species. I call on you to protect endangered species across the nation.

Sincerely,
