Don't Let Congress Dismantle the Endangered Species Act

Congress is moving quickly to gut the Endangered Species Act, America’s strongest and most important law for protecting wildlife. 

The Endangered Species Act has a proven track record of success in providing a safety net that protects our most vulnerable wildlife. It has prevented 99 percent of the species under its care from going extinct, including America's symbol, the Bald Eagle. We should allow this critical law to continue to protect wildlife for future generations, not undermine it.

Please ask your members of Congress to oppose efforts to weaken the Endangered Species Act.

American Golden-Plovers are among the more than 200 bird species that depend on the pristine habitat in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.  
The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA) was signed on December 28, 1973, and provides for the conservation of species that are endangered or threatened throughout all or a significant portion of their range, and the conservation of the ecosystems on which they depend.
