Protect the Endangered Species Act

This petition had 10,197 supporters


The Endangered Species Act is helping to save more than 1,600 U.S. plants, fish, and animal species from extinction so they will continue to be a part of our children's and grandchildren's worlds. This benchmark conservation law has saved the bald eagle, gray whale, grizzly bear, and many others and has a whopping 99 percent success record at preventing the extinction of listed species.

In spite of the success of this law and the urgent need for the protections it provides, Congress has taken aim at it with more than two dozen pieces of legislation that would weaken it. Bills that would transfer Endangered Species Act listing decisions from scientists to politicians, legislatively delist wolves, and block courts from reviewing these actions.

Please sign the petition to tell Congress that you support the Endangered Species Act and oppose any efforts to weaken it.
