FROM Endangered Species Coalition

Please oppose any regulations that weaken endangered species protections. In particular, please ensure that federal agencies thoroughly consult with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service when their actions may increase the climate change impacts on endangered species.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is a uniquely American law — a true expression of our concern for our land and all of its inhabitants. For more than 35 years, the ESA has been a safety net for our nation's wildlife, fish and plants on the brink of extinction. It has supported our country’s protection of majestic waterways and magnificent landscapes. The ESA has also driven billions into our economy through fishing, ecotourism, medicine development and other benefits.

Now, we have the opportunity to strengthen endangered species programs. Please support the strong scientifically based protections afforded our nation's wildlife, birds, fish and plants under the ESA.

The Department of Interior must strengthen endangered species protections by:

  • Overturning Bush-era policies and regulations that greatly undermine endangered species protection and recovery;
  • Protecting species throughout their entire ranges;
  • Extending the Act’s safety net to all species in need;
  • Strengthening habitat protections;
  • Addressing global warming impacts on endangered species and their habitat; and
  • Increasing funding for endangered species programs.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
