Congressional Attack on the Endangered Species Act

Senators Rand Paul, Dean Heller (R-Nev.) & Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.) introduced a bill that attempts to undermine the Endangered Species Act’s authority. The ‘Endangered Species Management Self-Determination Act’ is a congressional attack on the ESA, providing state governors with the power to decide how to regulate intrastate endangered species – so states can ignore the ESA if it best serves political interests.

Sen. Paul explained, “The Endangered Species Management Self-Determination Act ensures that local needs will be considered in the regulation process & places the decision-making into the hands of the states by allowing them to choose whether regulation occurs on the state or federal level.”

The ESA has been more than 99% successful at preventing extinction for wildlife under its protection for 40 years.  Help  prevent the Act itself from going extinct, please SIGN/SHARE the Wolf Conservation Center’s POPVOX legislative campaign to show your OPPOSITION of this bill – here.

When you sign the Popvox campaign, your vote goes directly to the lawmakers who represent you! If you like, you can also send a short *optional* message along with your vote. Please ask your representatives to oppose the bill too.  Thank you!

One Response to Congressional Attack on the Endangered Species Act

  1. Jeanie Riggio says:

    States should not be able to – on their own – make the decision to delist the wolf. Wolves are able to be killed for sport in states surrounding Yellowstone National Park. LEAVE THE WOLF ON THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST….
