The House of Representatives has left town for its summer recess, but not before unveiling a barrage of new anti-wildlife provisions in the Interior spending bill.
Just two weeks ago, tens of thousands of wildlife supporters joined together and successfully defeated the Extinction Rider on the Interior Department’s appropriations bill that would have threatened walruses, wolverines and other wildlife with extinction. We won that battle -- but the fight's not over.
These new provisions threaten wild Mexican gray wolves and endangered Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles with extinction and pose a significant threat of increased injury and death for gentle manatees.
Speak out for imperiled animals. Write your representative now and urge him or her to oppose the interior spending bill.
