Support for the Endangered Species Act

As part of the Endangered Species Coalition, S.P.E.C.I.E.S. is proud to join The Center for Biological Diversity, Defenders of Wildlife, Earth Justice, Endangered Species Coalition, Natural Resources Defense Council, Public Citizen, Sierra Club, and WeAct in garnering support for the Endangered Species Act.

The ESA is essential for conserving and protecting species that are endangered or threatened. It has been fundamental to the survival and recovery of imperiled species such as the Grizzly bear, the Gray wolf, and the Florida panther.

Yet, many of our native species still need our help. There are currently over 1,200 species listed on the Endangered Species Act in the United States. S.P.E.C.I.E.S. has launched its first project in the United States, California Carnivores

, in an effort to draw greater attention to the major threats facing carnivores and other wildlife in our backyard. The Endangered Species Act is a crucial aspect to conserving these carnivore communities.

It is paramount that we protect the integrity of this important Act. Without it, many of our native species will soon face extinction. If your organization wishes to support the Endangered Species Act, join us in signing this letter of support: http://www.endangered.org/organizational-support-for-the-e…/
