Fair Funding for Wildlife: Investing in our Commitment to Save America's Endangered Wildlife

Polls show that Americans overwhelmingly support the Endangered Species Act. Even so, the Act is chronically under-funded. Unfortunately, current funding levels often force wildlife officials to do their essential work on a shoestring budget. As a result, some of America’s endangered plants and animals languish on the brink of extinction.

The report shows that only by providing full, fair funding for wildlife under the Endangered Species Act can Americans meet their responsibility to save species from extinction and restore healthy ecosystems.

The selected species highlighted in this report demonstrate the effectiveness of the Endangered Species Act when it is backed with strong community support for recovering species and with resources dedicated to making recovery happen. The success that the Endangered Species Act has achieved on a limited budget should give impetus to Congress to provide more resources for restoring all of America’s threatened and endangered species and the places they call home.
