Killer whales. Caribou. Cutthroat trout. These animals are supposed to be “protected” under the Endangered Species Act, but all three species are at risk of being completely wiped off the planet by destructive industrial projects. [1]
 
Right now, when a species is designated “endangered” under the Endangered Species Act, there’s no enforced time limit on how long the government can take to put a plan in place to actually protect them.
 
That means that after being identified as endangered, these animals and their habitats are being left unprotected from oil, gas, and mining corporations who want to tear up their precious ecosystems for profit. [2]
 
Protection plans have been taking over six years to create, and many endangered animals still don’t have one at all. [3] For the almost 200 vulnerable species -- like the caribou, killer whale, and sea otter -- that could mean a death sentence.
 
If we can blow the lid off this giant failing in the Endangered Species Act with a massive petition pressuring the federal government, we could force them to implement a 1-year time limit on creating protection plans for animals deemed endangered. Will you add your name before endangered species lose more of their habitat?
 

To: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Environment Minister Catherine McKenna

Implement an enforced 1-year time limit to create protection plans for species designated as endangered under the Endangered Species Act.
