Act Now: Protect Maine’s Endangered Species
Tell Congress to address the extinction crisis
The planet’s rich diversity of plants, animals, and other life forms is under increasing threat from habitat loss, climate change, invasive species, wildlife exploitation, and pollution. According to a recent international study, an estimated one million species are at risk of extinction globally. This biodiversity crisis presents a direct threat to human health and security by impacting nature’s ability to provide critical ecosystem services, like clean air and water among a multitude of others.
Here in Maine, there are many plant and animal species that are at risk of extinction, including the Atlantic salmon, Canada lynx, and Piping Plover, which are beloved across the state and have played important roles in Maine’s culture and history. A significant portion of other Maine species, including birds, mammals, fish, fungi, lichen, and invertebrates, are vulnerable to climate change.
Human activity led to this crisis, and we can fix it. It’s time for our nation to act. Please play a leadership role in protecting the health of the planet for future generations by:
