Our nation and the planet are in the midst of a biodiversity crisis

This sign-on letter calls on the federal government to establish a National Biodiversity Strategy to protect, restore, and secure our rich biodiversity for generations to come. Only current state legislators can sign on to this letter.

While states are working hard to conserve their plants and wildlife, the threats to biodiversity are manifold and don’t recognize state boundaries. States rely on the federal government to help them coordinate a bold, whole-of-government response to a crisis of national and global proportions. It is critical that the federal government strengthen the nation’s collective response to escalating species extinctions and reaffirm America’s role as a global leader in biodiversity conservation.

State legislators can sign on to this letter by filling out the form. Deadline for signatures is May 19.

Only current state legislators can sign on to this letter.
