#ESA50: Act Against Extinction
As we approach the 50th anniversary on December 28, Defenders is spotlighting 50 days of Endangered Species Act successes and challenges through the eyes of some of our most iconic wildlife. Despite its record as the most effective U.S. law for preventing extinction, the ESA is constantly under Congressional attack and chronically starved for funding. Join us in championing the ESA and calling for Congress to fully fund the ESA and save our wildlife and wild places from disappearing forever.
