The Endangered Species Act is our nation's most effective law for protecting threatened wildlife. But the Trump administration decimated rules implementing this vital legislation, rolling back critical protections for habitat and species alike.
And it's having real consequences: after the Trump administration delisted the gray wolf across almost the entire lower 48, states have aggressively gone after these majestic creatures. Wisconsin hunters killed 216 wolves in less than 60 hours, wiping out 20% of the state's wolf population. Idaho passed a law allowing the killing of 90% of the state's wolves. Montana is in the midst of passing a series of bills targeting wolves, bears, and other wildlife.
It's time for Congress to make the extinction crisis a priority, strengthen and fully fund implementation of the Endangered Species Act and ensure protections are once again decided by science, not politics. Add your name now to demand that Congress strengthens the Endangered Species Act!
