Endangered Species Act under attack
In 1973 the United States Congress passed one of the most important pieces of legislation in the history of the world. The Endangered Species Act is under political attack by the Trump Administration. One of the organizations working to save the act is EarthJustice. Join their efforts today.
The following information was posted on their website on August 21, 2019.
RECOGNIZING THAT EXTINCTION IS IRREVERSIBLE,the United States did in 1973 what no country had done before, establishing a commitment to protect and restore the species that are most at risk of extinction.
In the four decades since the Endangered Species Act became law, 99% of species protected under the Endangered Species Act have not perished.
On Aug. 21, Earthjustice, on behalf of environmental and animal protection groups, suedthe Trump administration over its new regulations that dramatically weaken the Endangered Species Act. The rollbacks imperil hundreds of species and violate the spirit and purpose of the law itself.
