USA News – 9/1/18.



Mark, thank you for donating to the Center for Biological Diversity last year. Every dollar saves lives; every gift goes toward our love of the wild

Here’s what we accomplished together in 2017:LITIGATED: No environmental group sued Trump more than we did in 2017. We’ve filed 46 lawsuits — and counting — to beat back threats to the air we breathe, the water we drink, our climate, wildlife, public lands and public health, and we’re not about to stop now.

ACTIVATED: Through Ignite Change and other grassroots work, we mobilized more than 15,000 people across the country to stand up and speak out every time Trump and Congress try to harm wildlife, weaken pollution laws, destroy public lands or attack vulnerable communities.

ILLUMINATED: We filed more than 500 Freedom of Information Act requests to expose the Trump administration and those in Congress who value profits and pollution over people and wildlife.

PROTECTED: We secured Endangered Species Act protection for eight species. And we successfully defended 750,000 acres of protected habitat for jaguars, 6,500 acres for dusky gopher frogs and 120 million acres for polar bears.

Our promise to you for 2018: We won’t let up.

We’re in the fight of our lives for endangered wildlife and the places they live, and we’re glad you’re in that fight with us.

Dear Mark,

The Trump administration is taking its war on wildlife to the oceans.

In its latest bid to sell out our public resources, the Trump administration recently announced its intentions to expose nearly all U.S. coastal waters to dirty and dangerous oil and gas exploration.

Act Now: Demand that our marine wildlife and oceans be protected from destructive oil and gas drilling.

A new five-year offshore oil leasing plan, presented last Thursday by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, puts coastal communities and countless marine wildlife species in real danger.

This administration is blatantly ignoring the lessons of spills like the 2010 Deepwater Horizon catastrophe – and adding insult to injury, this new plan comes just days after a proposal to repeal the offshore drilling safety regulations that were put in place to prevent a disaster like that from ever happening again.

Stop this madness! Take action now and tell Secretary Zinke our oceans aren’t for sale.

In 2010, the world watched in horror as oil poured into the Gulf of Mexico. Bottlenose dolphins washed up dead on our shores, Kemp’s ridley sea turtles – the world’s most endangered sea turtles – were killed by the thousands and seabirds like laughing gulls sustained losses of nearly 40 percent of their populations.

We can’t let wildlife ever pay that price again.

Drilling in our oceans is a dangerous and dirty business even when there is no major disaster. Seismic blasting can deafen marine mammals like whales and dolphins; small, routine spills poison birds, turtles and other marine life; and undersea pipelines, dumping and drilling infrastructure further contaminate ocean ecosystems.

At a time when our planet needs to reduce its dependence on oil and gas in the face of climate change, the Trump administration is proposing a massive expansion that only increases the risks of climate disasters, contamination and harm to wildlife and coastal communities.

We won’t let our oceans run thick with oil that poisons precious marine wildlife and ecosystems – and we know you won’t either.

Stand with us and demand that Secretary Zinke’s ill-conceived plan get torn up.
