Tell Interior Secretary Salazar to reverse Bush administration attacks on endangered species

polar-bearsJust before leaving office, the Bush administration issued sweeping changes to the Endangered Species Act to weaken protections for imperiled wildlife, including polar bears, wolves and whales. These changes decrease scientific review for activities that could harm threatened and endangered species and prohibit the government from considering the impact of global warming pollution on polar bears and other wildlife.

Interior Secretary Salazar now has the opportunity to help reverse these destructive changes. In March President Obama signed a spending bill that allows Secretary Salazar to overturn President Bush's last-minute changes to the Endangered Species Act regulations as well as a separate rule that weakens Endangered Species Act protections for polar bears. But the Obama administration must act by May 10th, and opponents of the Endangered Species Act are working hard to convince Secretary Salazar that he should not withdraw these rules.

What to do

Send a message right away urging Secretary Salazar to withdraw the Bush administration's last-minute Endangered Species Act regulations and polar bear rule under the authority granted by President Obama and Congress
