Action Alert for the Endangered Species Act
Add your name to speak up for species, and protect our wildlife for future generations.
As written today, our Endangered Species Act works! 99% of species protected under the act are on the path to recovery.
Proposed administrative changes to the Endangered Species Act would significantly weaken protections for threatened and endangered species. Our wildlife needs YOU to protect the Act.
These changes are open to public comment. Please add your name and a personalized message (in the comment field) to the letter below. Use your own words to tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and our leaders we want our country’s conservation policies to be driven by the best available science. The proposed changes to the Endangered Species Act make threatened and endangered species more vulnerable. All information submitted with your comment (name, address, etc.) may be placed in the public record for this proceeding. Do NOT submit confidential or sensitive information.
To the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
The Endangered Species Act is considered one of the most successful conservation policies in the world because of an effective governmental process that continues to bring species back from the brink of extinction. Decisions regarding the protection of animal species and their habitats should be made by the best available science, not special interests.
We, as stewards, have a duty to save endangered animals and the places they live. Recently proposed rule changes would significantly weaken the Endangered Species Act, risking extinction for currently protected species throughout our country and the world. As habitats shrink, biodiversity declines, and animals face threats from human development and a changing climate, we must increase protections for endangered species, not weaken them.
I join Cleveland Metroparks and Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in urging the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to carefully consider the potential negative impacts of the proposed rule changes as noted in docket numbers FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0006, FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0007, and FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0009.
Cleveland Metroparks will submit your name, city, state, zip code and comments to USFWS. All comments become part of the public record.
Do NOT submit confidential or sensitive information.
