    You really should stop destroying our public lands and monuments for greed! You should be protecting these vast resources and the animals that inhabit them for future generations, instead of lining the pockets of your rich cronies!

    I support the Endangered Species Act 100%! Do NOT touch it, or try to weaken it to make your super rich supporters even richer, and to enrich powerful, greedy corporations.

    These programs do essential work and at a resaonable cost and should not be cut.

    As creators of Global Warming we have put so many creatures at risk including the environment and ourselves, the least little bit we should do is help protect animals at risk due to our actions/or lack of.

    My father and his his brothers were in the CCC and each served in WWII. There are sources that have said that because of the CCC and WPA programs hundreds and thousands of American were trained,disciplined and ready for WWII. That helped us to achieve victory by having these men who were prepared to serve.

    Please do not allow science to be divorced from policy-making
    when considering bills about endangered species.

    The Listing Reform Act (H.R. 717), introduced by Representative Pete Olson (R-TX-22) earlier this year, amends the Endangered Species Act (ESA) requiring economic costs be a determining factor before adding any imperiled species to the list of endangered or threatened species. This takes science out of the process; instead of listing species that are imperiled because of loss of habitat, Congress will only list species that do not pose high economic costs for their recovery. The purpose of the act is to protect all species scientifically considered to be so threatened that they need help to recover. It is not to protect only those species that are the least costly to recover.
    Determining whether or not a species is entitled to threatened or endangered status is a serious matter. The decision should rely on recent and reliable scientific discoveries, not costs. Do your part and urge your representatives to vote against legislation that threatens the Endangered Species Act. Tell your representative to vote against H.R. 717 today!

    We must do what we can to preserve our wildlife, especially those species which are endangered, from short-term development interests and corporate greed. The long-term result would be devastating to the plant and to us. When a species goes extinct, we all suffer.

    The National Academy of Sciences states, the extinctions of biological diversity and bio means, “life”, are as safe for humankind and planet Earth as global, thermonuclear war. Science maintains, the appearance of trees and plants on the land’s surface the evolutionary event that provided life as we know it. This event provided habitats/homes, food, shelter, nurseries and cover for all biological diversity; this is also mankind’s only true, veritable habitat as well. “In Wildness is the salvation of the Earth and the preservation of all life, long known among wolves and planet Earth but seldom perceived by man.” When we protect biological diversity, we protect planet Earth and every reason mankind has oxygen, water, life and safety.

    There are millions of dedicated people out there in the free-thinking parts of the world, who are deeply concerned over the regime change in the USA, and its stance on protecting the American environment and wildlife. Years of hard work and determination have saved many species from extinction, and protected fabulous areas of the USA for posterity. Yet here we have licence being given to a collection of people hell bent in creating a free-for-all for mining, gas and oil extractors, pipelines carrying dangerous chemicals layers, trophy shooters, invaders of Native American lands, deforesters, marine polluters and others out to leave America as a polluted no-go area. What has saved the USA has been the great humane American public, who donate and petition to protect that which is good and wholesome, and who stand against that destructive element in their country, that would erode the quality of life for many people and obliterate harmless creatures. What the world is witnessing, is a circus spectacle with too many clowns running the show.

    The ESA is necessary because of the actions of humans. people kill animals with no limits and take heir habitat for many different reasons and now many are dwindling in numbers very quickly. it is because of us they are disappearing and thus up to us to help keep them fem losing even more animals/species.

  36. Vivianne Mosca-Clark July 6, 2017 at 7:15 pm - Reply

    The protection act was made because it was needed. The animals were dying off and needed to have laws made for their survival. Continue this and do not stop protections. Thank you.

    It is evident that the Trump Administration would wipe out all animals and any regulation that stands in the way of a select group of people making a whole lot of money. This fact is both saddening and infuriating. We are the best country in the world. We have the talent and the intelligence to devise plans and methods that are beneficial to both the economy and the environment. Yes we need to invest in these methods – but they will be well worth it in the long run. We must not be short sighted. We must not allow our country’s environment and amazing wildlife to be destroyed because they are an impediment to someone’s economic gain. This would be shameful. Our children and their children will look back and wonder why we left them with so little.
