According to the National Wildlife Federation, the Bush Administration is planning to rollback protections for America's imperiled wildlife by rewriting the regulations of the Endangered Species Act.
If adopted, these changes would seriously weaken the safety net of habitat protections that we have relied upon to protect and recover endangered fish, wildlife and plants for the past 35 years.
According to NWF's John Kostyack, Executive Director of Wildlife Conservation and Global Warming:
Do not be fooled when the Administration claims it is merely tweaking the law. The cumulative impact of these changes equals a full blown attack on America's premier conservation law. We owe it to future generations to stop this attack and continue our legacy of protecting wildlife on the brink of extinction.
