America harbors a remarkable array of wildlife, yet many are in serious trouble and up to one third of U.S. species are at increased risk of extinction. Habitat loss and degradation, invasive species, disease, and pollution all pose threats to our wildlife—threats that are being amplified by a rapidly changing climate.
Reversing America’s Wildlife Crisis—a collaboration among the National Wildlife Federation, American Fisheries Society, and The Wildlife Society—celebrates the extraordinary diversity of U.S. wildlife while calling attention to the severe declines affecting many of the nation’s species.
Although severe, these declines can be halted—and even reversed. A growing body of research demonstrates that investing in conservation can make a difference. This report highlights the conservation successes made possible by State Wildlife Action Plans, and calls for a dramatic increase in wildlife funding—particularly through the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act—to reverse this crisis and secure the future of our fish and wildlife heritage.
