Take action: Take Action: Fight the Extinction Crisis Hundreds of species are currently in the pipeline for listing decisions by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and as industries continue to expand and climate change increases the frequency of catastrophic fires and other extreme weather events, this problem will only get worse. With adequate U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service funding, we can get ahead of the extinction curve—but in Congress, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is being challenged like never before, with some pushing repeated legislative attacks to block protections for species and blocking the USFWS’s ability to carry out Endangered Species Act protections. Tell Congress: Don't let a dire situation get worse. Support much-needed conservation efforts. Recipients Your SenatorsYour Representative Message * Subject: Dear [Decision Maker], * Personalize your message Some in Congress are pushing repeated legislative attempts to block protections for species with riders prohibiting the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's ability to carry out the ESA. These tactics will only make the already dire situation worse, while also upsetting the majority of American voters (90 percent of whom support the Endangered Species Act and do not support congressional delisting efforts). The ESA riders put forth by Congress in spending bills for the coming fiscal year upend much-needed conservation efforts, including innovative mitigation approaches such as habitat exchanges that could help resolve species conflicts and bring species back from the brink of collapse. Hundreds of species are currently in the pipeline for listing decisions by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and as industries continue to expand and climate change increases the frequency of catastrophic fires and other extreme weather events, this problem will only get worse. Please oppose any threats to species protection in Congress.
