National Wildlife Federation Urges White House, Senate to Select Supreme Court Nominee Who Understands Wildlife Stewardship

Washington, DC – The National Wildlife Federation urged the White House and the U.S. Senate to ensure the next Supreme Court justice understands the critical role our courts play in wildlife conservation.

“Restoring America’s wildlife is a generational endeavor. We need fair minded justices who will adhere to the text and intent of the many strong wildlife and environmental protections that Congress has passed over the years. These laws reflect Americans’ deep commitment to conservation,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “The president and senators should ask potential nominees their views about the role of the courts in stewarding our wildlife, water, air, land, and climate.”
