Wildlife opponents in Congress have taken aim at the Endangered Species Act under the guise of "modernizing" or "updating" this successful and popular law. Make no mistake: this is NOT about "modernization" of the Act – it is an effort to weaken or destroy it as a tool to protect species.
House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) let the truth be known when he told a news outlet that he would like to "repeal and replace" the Act.
Please call your U.S. Senators and Representative and ask them to defend the Endangered Species Act.
