Scientists Oppose Trump Attack on Endangered Species Act

Polar bears

The Trump 🦀 administration 🐉🦕🦖 has proposed brutal 👹 changes to the Endangered Species Act. But hundreds of scientists and organizations, including the Center, are fighting back. We've called on the administration to withdraw the proposed rules, which ignore science, would strip protection from many species, and would speed up habitat destruction.

And you've spoken up too: On Monday we delivered more than 56,000 comments from Center supporters, defending the Act, to Interior Secretary Zinke. Thank you. We'll keep you posted.

Yellowstone grizzly bear cubs

Victory: A Safe Future for Yellowstone Grizzlies 🐻

We're still buzzing with excitement over Monday's historic court ruling that restored Endangered Species Act protection to Yellowstone grizzlies.

The federal judge's decision to overturn a 2017 Trump administration order that stripped protection from these threatened bears is a massive victory. The Center for Biological Diversity, with our environmental and tribal allies, has been fighting that order since it was issued. Monday's decision not only returns protection but also halts plans in Wyoming and Idaho to hunt more than 20 bears.

Thanks to everyone who helped with this fight. We couldn't have done it without you.

But we fully expect the Trump administration to appeal this decision — and your gift to our Predator Defense Fund will help us defend this lifesaving victory.

Pacific fisher

A Crucial Win for Pacific Fishers

Thanks to another court victory won by the Center and allies, Pacific fishers now have a better shot at Endangered Species Act protection.

Relatives of minks and otters, Pacific fishers once lived in forests from British Columbia to Southern California. But intense logging and trapping drove their numbers way down, and now only two naturally occurring populations are left in California and Oregon.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed federal protection for the fishers in 2014, but in 2016 arbitrarily withdrew that proposal. So we challenged the decision, and a judge just ruled the agency must reconsider by March 2019. Hopefully that means these amazing, forest-dwelling creatures will finally get the protections they so badly need.

Do Elephants Thrive in the Wild?

In many parts of the world, elephant populations are threatened, due to demand for ivory and loss of habitat. A comprehensive study, however, suggests that protected areas may offer real hope for both Asian and African elephants.

According to the results of the six-year study, elephants living in protected areas of Kenya and Myanmar have lifespans that are at least twice as long as those housed in zoos.

In fact, even elephants born and raised in zoos tended to have shorter lifespans than those captured in the wild and later taken to zoos.

The study's authors point to factors such as obesity and stress as likely reasons why elephants do not survive nearly as long in zoos as in protected areas of the wild.

A trunkload of elephant facts: 🐘

African elephants have the longest gestation period of any mammal, at an average of 22 months.

Only cartoon elephants eat peanuts; real ones never touch the stuff.  ;D

No Asian elephant has ever been filmed running; they appear to always keep at least two feet on the ground.

We elephants belong in the protected (FROM HUMANS) wild, NOT in a prison you humans call a zoo.

For Immediate Release, October 6, 2018

Contact: Kierán Suckling, (520) 275-5960, ksuckling@biologicaldiversity.org

Statement on Kavanaugh's Confirmation to Supreme Court

TUCSON, Ariz.— Kierán Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity, released this statement after the Senate’s vote today to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as the next U.S. Supreme Court justice:

This is a profound and shameful moment for the U.S. Senate and the Trump administration that will have disturbing ripple effects for decades to come. By brushing aside serious and credible allegations, Republicans in the Senate are doubling down on an ugly kind of politics that rewards the powerful and pushes everyone else, including women, to the margins.

The U.S. Supreme Court will now tilt firmly in favor of right-wing ideologies, corporations, perpetrators and those to whom the notion of civil rights for all is a nuisance rather than a necessity.

“Beyond that Kavanaugh’s vote on Supreme Court will have awful consequences for clean air and water, wildlife, climate and anyone struggling against pollution in their own communities. Time and again, he has sided with corporations and other powerful interests when it comes to wildlife and the environment. That will continue. 🤬

“But Trump and his network of corruption shouldn’t rest easy. The resistance will galvanize and strengthen during this dark hour. We’ll link arms, speak louder, get more organized, demand more justice and fight harder than we ever have before. Too much is at stake now to do anything less.”

The Center for Biological Diversity is a national, nonprofit conservation organization with more than 1.6 million members and online activists dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places.
