Everyaction,

Thousands of species depend on the Endangered Species Act for survival.

But the Act has been severely underfunded for decades and desperately needs more funding to combat the climate crisis, habitat loss, wildlife exploitation and pollution, which are pushing more animal and plant species to the brink.

We've called on Congress to double its funding for endangered species conservation to $592 million per year. We can't curb the extinction crisis without giving every species what it needs.

Join us in telling Congress to save life on Earth by fully funding species conservation.

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, hundreds of endangered animals and plants receive less than $1,000 a year for their recovery. Many species receive no funding at all.

Our proposal calls for every species listed under the Act to receive a minimum of $50,000 per year for recovery.

The Endangered Species Act saves 99% of the species that are granted its powerful protection.

One million animal and plant species face extinction in the coming decades — and there simply isn't enough budgeted for their survival.

In the continental United States, more than 10 species have been declared extinct since 2010, including two butterflies, two beetles, two freshwater snails, a snake, a crustacean, a pocket gopher and the eastern puma.

Wildlife can’t wait. Please tell Congress to fight the extinction crisis with all the tools available.
