Have You Seen an Endangered Species?

Have you seen an endangered species? We need your story to help us defend the Endangered Species Act in the Senate:

//actionnetwork.org/campaign/esa_stories/i5sxe8zl5x7nnb?

People who care about America's wildlife are speaking up, and so far, it's working. Thank you to the nearly 20,000 Environmental Defense supporters who told their senators to keep our strong protection for rare animals.

In our campaign to save the Endangered Species Act (ESA), it's time to step up the pressure -- and nothing is more powerful than a personal story. Have you, or a friend or family member, seen a bald eagle, California sea otter, or grizzly bear? Tell us about the experience.

Tell Your Story:

The Senate has delayed taking up a bill that would cripple endangered species protections, and we're working to keep it that way. As we prepare to meet with key senators, your story will help us show them how much voters care about preserving our rarest species.

Seeing a bald eagle or other endangered species can be an amazing experience, as some of our own staff can attest.

Our own ecosystems scientist, Linda Laack, described seeing an ocelot and her kitten in Texas:

"About 20 years ago I was a graduate student conducting research on the small population of ocelots that occur in south Texas. I couldn't believe my good fortune one night in seeing a beautiful female ocelot.

Imagine my elation when moments later a kitten leapt from the brush onto its mother's back and began wrestling with her! Little did I know then that I would eventually end up following that kitten's progress over the next twelve years of her life as she became a mother and even a grandmother."

Our director of internet strategies, Kira Marchenese, also recalled seeing a bald eagle.

"Last month, I was on an afternoon paddle on the West Coast. The guide told us we'd see no eagles, as they were fishing somewhere else that day.

Just as we came back into the harbor, a lone bald eagle skimmed the water 20 feet in front of me. I got a perfect view of its yellow talons and startlingly white head."
