Dear Senators Manchin and Capito,
We need a strong Endangered Species Act to protect the natural world for today and future generations.
The ESA has protected West Virginia’s most beautiful places like Canaan Valley and Blackwater Canyon and the Monongahela National Forest. National symbols like the bald eagle were saved by this law. Republican and Democratic Presidents have used the Act to make our country a better place.
The ESA has been working as it was designed, and there is no reason to change it. Americans are counting on Congress to hold the line and preserve the environmental protections that we have fought so hard to achieve.
