Editorial: Endangered Species Act threatened

Editorial: Endangered Species Act threatened | Advocating for Wildlife | Scoop.it
A bill in Congress poses a serious threat to the Endangered Species Act.
Candy Copeland's insight:

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is endangered in my opinion.  Everywhere it seems, States are trying to butcher the Act so that they don't have to protect endangered Species or their habitat they depend on in order to survive.  They don't want their way to or ability to mine or drill hampered by some animal.  We must all fight this any where we see it.
