Protect the Endangered Species Act

President Biden

First enacted in 1973, the Endangered Species Act has become one of the United States' most popular laws amongst Americans and has been highly effective in preventing several species, including the bald eagle, grizzly bear, and gray wolf, from going extinct.

The Trump Administration weakened the Act and the Biden Administration has been slow to reverse these changes. With a scientific report from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) finding that up to one million plant and animal species on Earth are at risk of extinction, we need the Administration to fully restore this crucial law.

The implications of mass extinction are grave and we cannot afford to wait any longer to empower the Endangered Species Act. It’s time for the Biden Administration to act.

Sign the petition to tell President Biden to fully restore the Endangered Species Act.

The Trump Administration made a series of damaging changes to the way that the government carries out the Endangered Species Act. This crucial safeguard is more than 99 percent effective–making it one of our most successful laws. But it only works when we let it.

Please fully reverse the Trump Administration's changes to the Endangered Species Act immediately to allow it to continue saving species from extinction.
