Stop the Assault on the Endangered Species Act

Protect the future of wildlife—stop the Trump Administration from gutting the Endangered Species Act.

Dear Secretary Zinke:

I support maintaining the full extent of the Endangered Species Act protections and oppose the regulatory changes proposed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service on July 25. Specifically, I oppose:

  • stripping protections from threatened species
  • crippling the ability to designate critical habitat
  • decreasing science-based decision-making while increasing political and economic influence over ESA implementation
  • minimizing the need for interagency consultation and providing deference on ESA implementation to government agencies with no expertise in species conservation

Please maintain the much-needed protections provided by the ESA and its current implementing regulations and halt this Administration's efforts to undermine what has been one of the world's most effective laws for protecting wildlife.

The Endangered Species Act has provided needed protections to wildlife in danger for well over 40 years, preventing the extinction of 99% of listed species. Please allow it to continue working to protect our wildlife.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]
