There is a battle between the environment and Congress and the environment needs your help. Approximately two weeks ago legislation was introduced into Congress that would strip away federal Endangered Species Act protections from several great animals, such as the polar bear, the salmon and the gray wolf. Mother nature loves these animals and so should we. So how can you help?
Thanks to EarthJustice, a nonprofit environmental law firm dedicated to protecting wildlife and the environment, There is a viral campaign called Save our Skins which is helping educate the public and raise awareness for these animals. The animals are speaking on their own behalf and will share their daily trial and tribulations with the public, you can follow them on twitter. They want to be heard and they want to be saved. The videos are not only funny and adorable but also informative, you can’t help but fall in love with these animals.
You can let Congress know your distaste for this legislation and give the animals a voice by sending a letter to Senators Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell. Earthjustice is hoping to send out 37,000 letters, 1,000 letters for every year that the ESA has been around, letting Congress know that we oppose these attacks on wildlife and that the animals deserve to be on the endangered species list. Listen to the animals, they need your help.
