Stop the Stealth Attack on the Endangered Species Act

Stop the Stealth Attack on the Endangered Species Act
View this message online * Forward this message
Dear James M,
According to leaked documents obtained by the National Wildlife Federation, the Bush Administration is planning to rollback protections for America’s imperiled wildlife by re-writing the regulations of the Endangered Species Act.
If adopted, these changes would seriously weaken the safety net of habitat protections that we have relied upon to protect and recover endangered fish, wildlife and plants for the past 35 years.
We need your help to make sure this attack on the Endangered Species Act is met with a huge public outcry!
"Do not be fooled when the Administration claims it is merely tweaking the law," said NWF’s John Kostyack, Executive Director of Wildlife Conservation and Global Warming.
"The cumulative impact of these changes equals a full blown attack on America’s premier conservation law. We owe it to future generations to stop this attack and continue our legacy of protecting wildlife on the brink of extinction."
Please email Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne and make sure he knows that the American people will not stand for any attempts to weaken the Endangered Species Act.
And please forward this email to any friend or family member who might speak up for wildlife too!
Thank you so much,
Kristin Johnson
