We are currently in the midst of the sixth mass extinction. One species is responsible: our own. Thanks to humans, hundreds of animals and plants risk disappearing from our planet forever. But there is hope, thanks to WildEarth Guardians and a historic Endangered Species Act settlement we engineered.
On May 9, 2011, WildEarth Guardians entered into a historic settlement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which aims to resolve decades of litigation and shift the way endangered species are added to the threatened and endangered species list. The settlement ended years of waiting for species on the candidate list -- animals and plants that both the Service and WildEarth Guardians agree need the protection of the Endangered Species Act.
