Save Endangered Species From Attack by Politicians

sage-grouse-by-jeannie-stafford

Target: Nancy Pelosi, minority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives

Goal: Stop the Endangered Species Act from being rolled back in order to serve business interests over animal welfare and conservation.

A conversation over whether or not to protect the endangered bird the sage grouse has sparked a Republican movement in the U.S. House of Representatives aiming to roll back the Endangered Species Act. In aiming to protect the sage grouse under the Endangered Species Act, an expanse of land the size of Texas that is inhabited by the sage grouse would be protected and therefore out of the reach of business developers who want to use the land.

Oil and agricultural business interests want this expanse of sagebrush to be used for environmentally hazardous drilling and grazing the animals they’ll raise to be murdered for meat.  This area is one of the last big spaces of undeveloped wildernesses in the U.S., but these businesses don’t care. They just care about profit.

Two major environmental groups, the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and WildEarth Guardians, have fought through petitions to protect many animals under the Endangered Species Act. We cannot allow these protections to end just so big business can continue to make massive profits.

Tell lawmakers to rally in protection of the Endangered Species Act and not allow it to be rolled back.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Nancy Pelosi,

A conversation over whether or not to protect the endangered bird the sage grouse has sparked a Republican movement in the U.S. House of Representatives aiming to roll back the Endangered Species Act for the benefit of big business.

Oil and agricultural business interests want this expanse of sagebrush to be used for environmentally hazardous drilling and grazing the animals they’ll raise to be murdered for meat, but we must protect this land as it is one of the last few undeveloped wildernesses in the U.S.

We cannot allow these protections to end just so big business can continue to make massive profits. I urge you to rally in protection of the Endangered Species Act and not allow it to be rolled back.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
