Stop Bush From Taking a Last Stab at Endangered Species The National Environmental Policy Act is a safeguard that forces agencies to look before they leap, considering the environmental implications of federal projects. It guarantees that relevant information will be made available to the public that may play a role in both the decision-making process and the implementation of decisions.
But the Bush administration, trying to hastily shove the regulation changes to the Endangered Species Act through before it leaves office, is disregarding the safeguards put in place — its new Environmental Assessment completely ignores the impact of climate change and pretends there are no alternatives to changing the Endangered Species Act. Additionally, the administration is giving the public only until this Thursday — November 6th — to comment.
We'll be collecting comments to submit, please add your comments by Tuesday to ensure that they get there in time. Don't let the Bush administration ignore the impacts of its decisions just because it's in its final days. Take action now: Submit your comments today by filling in the information below.

John McCain on NBC’s, Meet the Press, 1/30/00: Mr. Russert: “A Constitutional Amendment to ban all abortions?” McCain: “Yes Sir.” Mr. Russert: “But, Senator, women across the country would say, prior to Roe v. Wade, hundreds of thousands of women a year went to back alleys to have abortions.” McCain: “I understand that.” Mr. Russert: “Many died.” McCain: “I understand that.”

The World Conservation Union (IUCN) lists all seven sea turtle species as 'threatened' or 'endangered.' Five of the seven species inhabit the Bahamas — green, loggerhead, leatherback, hawksbill, and olive ridley sea turtles. Since sea turtles are known to migrate between waters of the U.S. and Bahamas, turtle conservation efforts in the US are hindered by the lack of adequate protections in the Bahamas.
The Bahamas Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources has proposed a rule that will enhance sea turtle conservation by prohibiting all harvest, purchase, and sale of sea turtles and turtle products.
We need your help to convince the Bahamas to move forward with this rule to protect sea turtles. Please take action today to help us get better international protection for these ancient mariners.
