Join the Aquarium in saving the Endangered Species Act

  The Endangered Species Act helped bring sea otters
back from the brink of extinction.

The Endangered Species Act is an important law to help preserve and protect species that are threatened or on the path to recovery. These important federal protections have a 99% success rate when it comes to ensuring the survival of endangered or threatened animals and it is critical we keep these laws in place.

Proposed administrative action by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) would weaken the Endangered Species Act and we need your help to ensure these important protections remain in place.

The USFWS is taking public comment on their three proposed rule changes and we would encourage you to add your name to the letter below. Conservation policies like the Endangered Species Act should be driven by the best available science and the proposed administrative changes just don’t make sense.

 

To the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,

Endangered species deserve our support and the Endangered Species Act has been an incredibly successful tool to bring back numerous species from the brink of extinction. Polling shows that 83 percent of the public support strong protections for endangered species and the three proposed administrative rule changes would weaken this important law.

Policies like the Endangered Species Act should be shaped by the best available science, not special or economic interests. Ecosystems across the globe continue to be threatened by a changing climate and human development. We must conserve and protect our planet and the many species that call it home. Weakening this important law takes us backward and puts many important species at risk. I join Seattle Aquarium in urging the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to rescind the proposed rule changes to the Endangered Species Act.
