PETITION TARGET: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer
UPDATE (10/13/2021): S. 2372 was approved by the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and now heads to the Senate Floor. It currently has 32 co-sponsors, while House Companion bill 2773 has 171 co-sponsors and advanced out of the House Natural Resources Committee in January. We’ll keep watching this life-saving legislation. —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.
