PRESS STATEMENT: Trump Administration Weakens Endangered Species Act

STATEMENT FROM ALIKI MONCRIEF, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, FLORIDA CONSERVATION VOTERS

“The Endangered Species Act is the most-successful conservation law ever written. Imagine a Florida without the Bald eagle or the manatee – that would be our terrible reality were it not for the ESA. Interior Secretary Bernhardt and President Trump’s decision to weaken these protections is ignorant, short-sighted, and a blatant giveaway to the biggest polluters in our country. I hope Governor DeSantis stands up for Florida by denouncing this latest shameful and anti-environmental policy of the Trump Administration.”
