Wolf Conservation Center Talks Wolves and the Endangered Species Act on NBC News

The Wolf Conservation Center is featured in a story about the Endangered Species Act, Wolves, and  Politics on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.

In the 40 years since the ESA was established, it has protected more than 1500 domestic species.  Sadly, politicians have forgotten the values Congress embraced 40 years ago when conservation laws such as the ESA passed overwhelmingly. Now, a number of lawmakers are actually intent on weakening or repealing these laws altogether.

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. If passed, the ‘Endangered Species Management Self-Determination Act’ will provide 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.  Are we ready to allow these congressional attacks cause the Act itself to go extinct?

Please SIGN/SHARE the WCC’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!

    Salvar y respetar la vida de los lobos

  2. Susan Childs says:

    Wolves need our protection. They are a keystone species and without them in the environment it will collapse as it has been doing since their removal. We try to correct it over and over by doing other things when only their presence is required

  3. Helen Gentner says:

    Please kep the federal protections on endangered species. Wolves have contributed to the invironment especially in Yellowstone.
