Defend the Endangered Species Act! In the latest episode of “Wonderful Things Congress is Putting at Risk,” Congress is considering multiple attacks that would undermine the Endangered Species Act — attacks that put safeguards to thousands of species in jeopardy. Two of these bills, H.R. 717 and H.R. 1274 put economic impacts over the well-being of wildlife and value state and local data as the “best available science,” even if other, better data was available. These endangered species — from polar bears to bald eagles to gray whales, totaling at around 2,300 species — aren’t just beautiful. They are symbols of America’s natural heritage that play crucial roles in their ecosystems. It’s up to us to protect them. Tell your Members of Congress to stand with 90% of Americans in support of the Endangered Species Act. Message Young People Demand Protection of the ESA. Dear [Decision Maker], * Personalize your message I am deeply opposed to bills moving through the House of Representatives that attack the integrity of the Endangered Species Act. Combined, H.R. 717 and H.R. 1274 would together undermine the core mission of the Endangered Species Act, putting economic impacts over the well-being of wildlife and undermining the integrity of the scientific process. As a young person, I'm concerned about the future we are preserving for future generations. A future that puts profits over environmental impacts is not the future we need. The ESA protects the natural heritage of America a heritage that should continue to exist for everyone. Please protect America's wildlife, and vote as 9 out of 10 Americans would want: Against bills that compromise the integrity of the Endangered Species Act and the very species it was designed to protect.
