Submit your comment: Protect endangered species from a dangerous new rule
Docket No. NOAA_FRDOC_0001-5578
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service:
The Trump administration's proposed change to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) would narrow the very meaning of "habitat" and have a disastrous effect on the very species the Act was created to protect.
The new definition would make it harder to save vulnerable wildlife under the ESA through the restoration of historical habitat. At a time when species are dying off at an unprecedented rate, it simply makes no sense to weaken a law that has a 99 percent success rate in preventing the extinction of listed wildlife.
I urge you to reject this proposed rule, and to let the ESA continue protecting the natural world.
