Call Your Senator Today / Republicans Trying to Destroy The Endangered Species Act / Vote NO on H.J. Res. 69 & S.J. Res. 18!

Republicans are trying to systematically destroy The Endangered Species Act. This is the law that saved the Bald Eagle from extinction as well as many other iconic species. The Endangered Species act has a 99% success rate. It does NOT need to be fixed as the GOP contends. Republicans are trying to gut the bill to appease the NRA, Big Oil, and other corporate interests. Saving endangered animals is a bipartisan issue! Don't let the Republicans destroy this vital piece of legislation! 

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed House Joint Resolution 69, which would revoke an important federal rule that bans various controversial hunting practices on federally owned land in Alaska. 

The Senate will soon be voting on a companion bill Senate Joint Resolution (S.J. Res.) 18 as well as House Joint Resolution 69

If passed, it they will legalize cruelty in refuges where countless wild species make their homes. 

  • Hunters can kill hibernating Bear & Wolf cubs and mothers in their dens. 
  • Hunters can kill animals from airplanes. 
  • Trappers can use barbaric steel-jaw and wire-snare traps.
  • The Bill would prevent the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from regulating these cruel hunting practices in any way moving forward.
