Tell Sen. Tom Coburn to Stop Blocking Wildlife Bills

Just before Congress left Washington to go home and campaign, Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) put a personal hold on five important pieces of wildlife legislation, effectively blocking them from a vote.

Coburn's rash actions affect a wide variety of species, including sharks, big cats, wolves, sea otters, and marine mammals - including some threatened species.

Add your voice to the call for Tom Coburn to let his fellow Senators vote on these crucial bills.
