Tell the USFWS: Don't reduce critical habitat for endangered species
Docket # FWS-HQ-ES-2020-0047
I oppose the proposed rule to redefine “habitat” as “areas with existing attributes that have the capacity to support individuals of the species.” This change would preclude restoration of endangered species’ historical habitat, and further threaten our most vulnerable wildlife.
The Endangered Species Act is intended to protect wildlife from extinction. But this proposal would weaken those protections. As such, I urge you to abandon this proposal.
