Will Struggling Polar Bears Survive Without Protections?

Will Struggling Polar Bears Survive Without Protections?

By SOP newswire2

First it was wolves in the Northern Rockies, now some Members of Congress are targeting protections for polar bears and virtually all other wildlife threatened and endangered wildlife as extremists set their sights on the Endangered Species Act.

Please donate today to help defend the Endangered Species Act and protect our most vulnerable wildlife.

For nearly four decades, the Endangered Species Act has protected wildlife on the edge of survival. Without it, Mexican wolves would be extinct in the wild, bald eagles would be gone in the lower 48 states and sea turtles would have already dwindled from our shores.

But powerful special interests and extremists in Congress have launched a sneak attack on this landmark law -- and the more than 1,000 species it protects.

Our vulnerable wildlfe needs your help. Please donate todayto support our work to defend the Endangered Species Act.

Earlier this year, Congress stripped protections for wolves in the Northern Rockies -- the first time a species has been delisted through legislation. It`s opened the doors for one of the biggest assaults on the Endangered Species Act in years.

Now, extremists in Congress are targeting protections for America`s vanishing polar bears, our Mexican wolves and other wildlife struggling to survive.

Help save our most vulnerable wildlife. Make a tax-deductible donation now to support our work to defend the Endangered Species Act.

These sneak attacks are funded by some of the most powerful special interests -- Big Oil, Big Ag and others -- and they won`t stop until this vital law is gutted to oblivion.

Your support today will help Defenders:

  • Fight on Capitol Hill for protections for our most vulnerable wildlife and keep the Endangered Species Act intact; 
  • Mobilize tens of thousands of grassroots supporters to defend the ESA;
  • Educate the media and the public about the ESA and how it protects our wildlife and wild places; and
  • Other efforts on the ground to ensure a lasting future for wildlife struggling to survive.

America`s threatened and endangered wildlife is under attack -- backed by some of the nation`s most powerful special interests. But you can help us fight back -- and give our struggling wildlife a chance at survival. Please donate today.

For the Wild Ones,
