ACTION ALERT: Endangered Species Act

Hudson Polar Bear at Brookfield Zoo

Add Your Name to Speak Up for Species

99% of species protected under the Endangered Species Act have survived and are on the path to recovery.

Proposed administrative changes to the Endangered Species Act would significantly weaken protections for endangered species. Threatened animals need you to protect the Act.

These changes are open to public comment. Please add your name to the letter below to tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and our leaders we want our country’s conservation policies driven by the best available science. Changing our nation’s landmark conservation policy doesn’t make sense.

Sign this Letter Right Now to Make your Voice Heard!

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 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 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 undermine them.

I join Brookfield Zoo in urging the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to rescind the proposed rule changes (Docket No. FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0007, FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0006, FWS-HQ-ES-2018-0009)
