Defend the Endangered Species Act

We don't just want our most precious endangered species to survive. We want them to thrive. When it comes to protecting our nation's unique creatures, the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is the most successful conservation law in the books. From the bald eagle to the grizzly bear, we've seen time and time again that recovery for endangered species is entirely possible -- but only if we give them the protection they need.

The proposal by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to change "critical habitat" classifications under the ESA would make it more difficult for these incredible species to recover and thrive. We must protect these creatures before they vanish from our world forever.
