Urge Congress to boost funding for endangered species conservation

secure.wildearthguardians.org

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is one of the best tools America has to stem the current extinction crisis facing plants and wildlife. In fact, the ESA has prevented more than 99% of species protected by the Act from going extinct over the past four decades.

Unfortunately, the ESA has been chronically underfunded for decades. Hundreds of endangered animals and plants receive less than $1,000 a year for their recovery and many species receive no funding at all from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). This must change immediately.

WildEarth Guardians has joined more than 170 groups calling on Congress to significantly increase the USFWS’ budget for endangered species conservation and we could use your help. Please write your members of Congress today.
