Lawmakers Thwart Effort to Kill Endangered Species Protection

On July 27, 2011 with a vote of 224-202 the U.S House of Representatives rejected the “extinction rider,” which would have prohibited species listings and habitat conservation under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).  Defeating the “extinction rider” is great news for America’s most vulnerable species and their habitat.

A big Thank You to all of Big Wildlife’s supporters who took action and contacted their Representative!!  Together, we’re all making a difference for wildlife and wild places!
