(Quote by Rep. Raúl Grijalva (Ariz.), the Natural Resources Committee’s top Democrat)
Action – Protect the Endangered Species Act by speaking out.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA Fisheries has been forced by law to seek public input on proposed reforms to “Improve & Modernize Implementation of the Endangered Species Act”. So, let’s blow them out of the oil-polluted water in which they swim. Deadline is September 24th, so comment early and often. Continue reading “Mon – 8/6: How much is our wildlife worth? The GOP is willing to liquidate our natural heritage for cash. WRITE! Deadline Sept. 24th.”
We originally published this on 5/31. Deadline was extended to Sept. 6th.
This is not hunting. This is the lazy and inhumane slaughter of key predator animals necessary to keep natural ecosystems in balance in areas where they should be safe.
The Interior Department is planning on easing regulations on “sport” hunting in Alaska national reserves. The new rule would allow bear cubs to be killed along with their mothers, caribou to be killed while swimming, and wolves and their pups to be killed in their dens. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, speaking next to a dead animal head, argues that this is merely a move to align federal regulations with Alaska state law, while others say that the rollback would allow for cruel and inhumane hunting practices. The proposed rule has a 60-day open comment period which IS COMING TO AN END THIS Friday, September 6th.
Rule being discussed is here. There are fewer than 75,000 comments! Please add more! Let’s make this a 6-figure response!
