Endangered Species Act



© FOUR PAWS

Help Save the Endangered Species Act!

One of the most successful conservation laws of our time, the Endangered Species Act (ESA), is under attack by the Trump Administration and members of Congress who are seeking to place corporate interests above science and the survival of endangered species.  

 

Recently proposed bills in the US Congress are aiming to strip the ESA of its strength and power in protecting our world’s wildlife. Lobbyists for the oil, mining, and logging industries have persuaded the Trump Administration and federal lawmakers to push for reforms that: place economic profits over species survival, remove climate change as a factor that impacts species survival, allow critical species habitats to be destroyed for oil pipelines and other disastrous industry projects, and replace sound science for economic factors in determining the listing of threatened species under the Act.  

 

We must act now to ensure the ESA and the animals it protects do not become victims of corporate greed!

 

Animals on the Endangered species list need your help! Without the ESA, iconic species like Bald eagles, Grizzly bears, and American gray wolves would not be here today without the current legal protections granted under the ESA. Threatened international species like African lions and elephants are granted protection under the ESA as part of our international treaty obligations to ensure the survival of these species against harmful international trade between the US and other countries. The ESA also affords protections to endangered species in captivity, allowing for the rescue of animals like tigers and lions living in deplorable conditions in roadside zoos.
