06 April 2011 Take Action: Stop the Anti-Wildlife Agenda Posted by: Chris Burley | 1 comment | Share: House Majority Leader John Boehner and others are insisting that vital protections for wolves be eliminated as part of must-pass legislation to keep the federal government operating. Ridiculous. That’s the only way to describe what’s happening in Washington, DC right now. The House leadership is holding the federal government hostage, insisting that their extremist anti-wildlife agenda be part of a must-pass bill to keep the federal government running. Our wolves, polar bears, clean water and clean air are at stake. Please urge your U.S. senators to oppose anti-wildlife riders in the must-pass continuing resolution. House Speaker John Boehner and his extremist allies have tucked the worst anti-environment agenda in the last 15 years in the pages of a must-pass spending bill to keep the federal government functioning. The Senate has already rejected it once — but that’s not stopping Rep. Boehner. Boehner and his allies in the House are insisting that Congress… Strip vital protections from wolves; Render the federal government powerless to save polar bears and other wildlife from the effects of climate change; and Gut the programs that protect the air we breathe and the water we drink. Sound serious? It is. The House leadership is playing politics with our wildlife and our environment. It’s a reckless, scorched earth agenda against our natural heritage — if they win, the consequences will be severe. Please take action today and urge the Senate to stand firm against this anti-wildlife agenda.

We’ve Got to Protect What’s Left of the Sagebrush Sea New research shows that after a fire, the Sagebrush Sea (home to the imperiled greater sage-grouse) could take up to 20 years to fully recover. With other factors already threatening so much of this habitat, what does that mean for the species that call it home?
