Congress is moving quickly to gut the Endangered Species Act, America’s strongest and most important law for protecting wildlife. Chicago Audubon stands with National Audubon against all efforts to weaken the Endangered Species Act.

The Endangered Species Act has a proven track record of success in providing a safety net that protects our most vulnerable wildlife. It has prevented 99 percent of the species under its care from going extinct, including America's symbol, the Bald Eagle. We should allow this critical law to continue to protect wildlife for future generations, not undermine it.

Please ask your members of Congress to oppose efforts to weaken the Endangered Species Act:
