DEADLINE TODAY! Write. It takes less than 5 minutes to save the Tule Elk.

Take a moment to write a comment supporting the continued existence of the tule elk, a subspecies of elk that was decimated nearly to extinction.  (Californians need to call too. Script below.)

This is what we’re in danger of losing (This video is from 2009)…

A small protected population survives in California, and now livestock interests are pressing the National Park Service to kill them or severely restrict their movements (which has previously led to starvation) so that the relatively small amount of public land allotted to this native species can instead be used to graze their cattle. Speak up so that they can survive and remain free-roaming.

Write! It’s easy! Use this link to make your public comment TODAY NOV. 15TH.

While our attention was on taxes, these horrors have quietly crept out of their committees. Call, Call, Call!

Unfortunately these anti-“Endangered Species Act” (ESA) bills have just made it out of committee and can be put on the schedule as early as this week!  Put them all together in a single call and make sure the intern answering the phone gets all the bill numbers right and that it’s a big fat “NO” on all of them. 

If you made these calls before, please do it again. There’s also a new one included here that puts fish populations in their sights.

Minimal Script: Are you ready to record a series of numbers? I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Rep. [___] to vote NO on the following bills: HR 424,  HR 717HR 1274, HR 2603,  HR 3131, and HR3916 .

More script if you need it: These bills weaken protections of the Endangered Species Act or exempt individual species from protection. I care about biodiversity and I’m tired of this administration putting resource development above the environment.

Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

or Rep. Salud Carbajal: (CA-24): DC (202) 225-3601, SB (805) 730-1710 SLO (805) 546-8348
