Join us in applauding President Obama's stated commitment to protect endangered species and restore scientific integrity. Urge President Obama to immediately reverse regulations that weaken the Endangered Species Act and to take steps to strengthen endangered species protections. The Bush Administration has pushed through last minute regulations to weaken the Endangered Species Act. The Obama administration has an opportunity to restore protections for our nation's disappearing wildlife and last remaining wild lands. Sign the petition to President Obama.
The Endangered Species Act is a safety net for our nation's wildlife, fish and plants on the brink of extinction. Please reverse the Bush Administration's regulations that weaken the Endangered Species Act. The last minute regulations weaken listing and habitat protections, remove scientific consultations that provide the necessary checks and balances, and ignore global warming as a threat to our nation's wildlife.
We have the opportunity to not only repair all of the damage done to endangered species programs, but to also take endangered species programs a step further in protecting America's wildlife. As an American citizen who is committed to protecting wildlife, I support efforts to:
· extend the Endangered Species Act's safety net to all species in need
· strengthen habitat protections
· address global warming impacts on threatened and endangered species
· provide adequate funding for endangered species programs
