I’m writing to share a quick update on our federal campaign to keep wolves protected, and to ask for your help.
Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey and Barbara Boxer of California have composed a letter to President Obama, pointing out that a record number of anti-environmental provisions undermining the Endangered Species Act have been included in the Senate and House versions of the FY 2016 Interior appropriations bill. The letter, now co-signed by 14 other Senators, urges President Obama to flatly reject all riders that would undermine Endangered Species Act protections for particular species or otherwise erode the Act.
We would like Senator Tammy Baldwin to sign onto that letter. In fact, I’ve been told that she is the most pivotal Congressperson to reach; if she signs on, it changes the dynamics in the Democratic caucus on the wolf issue.
Will you please help me by making a call to Senator Baldwin’s D.C. office (202-224-5653) and saying the following:
I am calling to ask Senator Baldwin to sign onto the Booker-Boxer letter to oppose delisting of wolves and other endangered species in the omnibus spending bill.
And then please circulate this request among your networks!
Thanks so much,
