There is a very serious threat that some of these anti-species riders could become law, unless leaders in Congress stand firm in rejecting them.

Last week, the House and Senate Appropriations Committees finished work on their respective versions of the federal spending bill that funds the Department of the Interior, the EPA and the U.S. Forest Service.

Annoyed by the fact that endangered species protection decisions are by law based on science rather than politics, some congressional leaders are trying to slip a legislative noose around some of the nation’s most needy species by loading the must-pass spending legislation with dozens of toxic riders including some that eliminate Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for wolves.

With extinction there is no turning back, no second chance. Thankfully, the ESA has given thousands of at-risk species a second chance for over four decades and has worked successfully to prevent the extinction of 99% of the species placed under its protection. A national poll conducted this year found that the Endangered Species Act is supported by 90% of American voters.

Despite its success and public support, the ESA is under attack like never before. Some members of Congress have introduced dozens of legislative proposals that seek to gut the ESA, block its protections for wolves, other imperiled species and habitat, and obstruct our ability to enforce this federal law.

Please urge your Congressional representatives to preserve the spirit and integrity of this robust federal law and to oppose any legislation that takes aim at imperiled wildlife!

This action is open to U.S. residents only.

It’s my understanding that some congressional leaders are trying to slip a legislative noose around some of the nation’s most needy species by loading the House and Senate Interior and Environment Appropriations bills with dozens of anti-environmental riders - including some that eliminate Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for wolves.

As a lifelong supporter of the ESA, I write to urge you to preserve the spirit and integrity of this important federal law.

The ESA was passed in 1973 because Americans believed that protecting our wildlife was an obligation to future generations, our nation’s environmental health, our fellow creatures, and the heart of the American way of life. It included wildlife ranges and habitats irrespective of political boundaries because these habitats, which are vital to species survival, cross arbitrary lines. Today, many politicians have forgotten the values Congress embraced four decades ago, and they now attempt to undermine one of most successful bipartisan pieces of legislation our country has ever adopted.

The ESA has given thousands of at-risk species a second chance for over four decades and has worked successfully to prevent the extinction of 99% of the species placed under its protection. A national poll conducted last year found that the ESA is supported by 90% of American voters.

Despite its success and public support, the ESA is under attack like never before.

While those Congressional leaders and lobbyists have spoken for major corporations and special interests, my individual voice as a voting American counts just as much. I expect you will protect and preserve one of our nation's most effective environmental laws and oppose these back-door assaults on our environment, wildlife and public lands.
