just finalized regulations to severely undermine the strength of the Endangered Species Act, risking the future of wildlife species and further threatening the balance of fragile ecosystems that we depend on for survival. The regulations would curtail protections afforded to threatened species, allow economic considerations to be weighed when deciding whether to list a species, significantly weaken the process for designating protected habitat, and dismantle the interagency consultation process, effectively silencing the voices of experts best suited to determine the effect of projects on imperiled species. At a time of global mass extinction driven by human activities, we need the ESA more than ever, and these regulations are a devastating blow to vulnerable wildlife.
