Block President Trump's dangerous efforts to harm the Endangered Species Act

If the Trump administration has its way, the North American Wolverine may be doomed to the endangered species list.
For years pro-industry legislators have pushed for dismantling key provisions in the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and now the Department of the Interior and the Commerce Department’s National Marine Fisheries Service just announced a proposal to gut automatic protections for wildlife like the North American Wolverine and the Monarch Butterfly, to name a few, that are currently under consideration for threatened species protection.
Sign and share today to stop the Trump administration from stripping 45 years of protection for threatened species from the Endangered Species Act.
Under the guise of an administrative effort to scale back "government regulation," this new proposal is just a way to give agriculture and energy companies the freedom to drill and graze cattle in habitats earmarked for protected species. The new rules specifically target two provisions of the ESA:
- Protection for species listed as threatened — The new rule would only grant "certain protections" to threatened species, species at risk of becoming endangered if no action is taken, on a case-by-case basis.
- Economic factors for habitat protection — The new rule would allow officials to factor in economic opportunities, like drilling and ranching, when considering protection for wildlife.
We have 60 days to tell the Trump administration to keep the ESA intact with these key wildlife protections. Sign and share today to protect the most at-risk species, like the North American Wolverine.
