PETITION TARGET: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer
UPDATE (1/17/2023): RAWA died in 2022 after Congress cut the legislation from the omnibus spending package, with concerns over how the government could pay for the funding. Thankfully, however, bipartisan support remains strong for the wildlife protections, and news reporting that the bill could be passed in 2023 after being reintroduced in the House and Senate. We’ll advocate for this bill again when that happens. Thanks in the meantime to everyone who signed and voiced your support. —Lady Freethinker Staff
Resource-strapped state agencies are racing against the clock to conserve vulnerable species inching closer toward being permanently wiped out– including the Florida panther, lesser prairie chicken, red wolf, and dusky gopher frog.
The disappearance of these animals would likely cause a domino effect, putting currently stable populations at risk and devastating ecosystems throughout the country.
A recently reintroduced bill called the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act would infuse state, territory, and tribal fish and wildlife agencies with desperately needed funding for preserving fragile wildlife habitats that are home to species of concern.
As the biodiversity crisis deepens, lawmakers must now pass this critical and life-saving proposed legislation.
Sign this petition urging Congress to support this crucial bill to combat urgent conservation challenges and promote the long-term health of wildlife in the United States.
