Stop the Attack on Endangered Species


The Endangered Species Act is one of the most important environmental laws in our country. It protects polar bears from dangerous drilling in their Arctic homes. It safeguards threatened and endangered turtles from reckless fishing practices. And it safeguards rare Mexican gray wolves from poachers.

But now this important law -- a law that protects more than 1,000 unique kinds of wildlife from extinction -- is under attack.

Our animals need you. Urge Congress to stand up for the Endangered Species Act.


Already, Congress has eliminated vital protections for wolves in the Northern Rockies and Greater Yellowstone. Members of Alaska’s Congressional delegation are now fighting to roll back protections for America’s vanishing polar bears and rare Cook Inlet beluga whales. 

Speak out for polar bears, wolves and other threatened and endangered wildlife. Sign our petition now.
