Please add your name to tell the Trump administration to reconsider these proposed revisions and instead focus on fully funding the Endangered Species Act.

The Departments of Interior and Commerce recently proposed drastic changes to the way they carry out the Endangered Species Act. If these revisions go into effect as written, protecting endangered and threatened species and the wild places they rely upon will be much more difficult.

The changes would:

Insert economic impact into decisions about protecting species;
Make it much more difficult to protect species threatened by climate change;
Add new burdens to the process of protecting plants, fish, and animals and make it easier to slash protections from species now on the list;
Make it harder to designate critical habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife;
Reduce protections for threatened species;
Reduce voluntary conservation incentives; and
Weaken the consultation process that requires government agencies to check with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to determine if their actions will harm protected plants, fish, and animals.

The Endangered Species Act is phenomenally successful. It has a 99 percent success rate at preventing the extinction of species in its care. But it only works if politicians stay out of the way.
