The Endangerment of the Endangered Species Act

By Shannon Perry

The Endangered Species Act has been a powerful and effective tool in protecting fragile species. The act is itself in danger from the Trump Administration.

There are other proposed cuts as well. Make your voice heard, write your representatives, and please vote in November.
