Thank you for your interest in taking this action. This campaign is now closed.
The Great Cats and Rare Canids Act, a bill to protect imperiled species such as lions, leopards, jaguars, cheetahs, Ethiopian wolves and African wild dogs, came close to passing Congress in 2008. It was approved by the full U.S. House of Representatives and by a key senate committee in 2008, setting the stage, we hope, for reintroduction and rapid progress in the 111th Congress, which convenes in January 2009. Learn more about this campaign.
