Born Free USA works hard to help wildlife in need, and birds are no exception. That’s why we’re excited to celebrate the 13th Annual National Bird Day on Sunday, January 5, 2014! National Bird Day, created by Born Free USA and the Avian Welfare Coalition, shines a spotlight on issues critical to the protection and survival of birds – captive and wild. The annual campaign educates people about the international trade in wild birds, raises awareness about standards of care for pet birds, and engenders a deeper respect and understanding about global avian conservation issues.
This bill would severely weaken the Endangered Species Act (ESA), which has a remarkable track record of saving species from extinction over four decades. S.1731/H.R. 3533 would require the federal delisting of all species every five years, regardless of how fragile their populations are. All legal protections would be eliminated until Congress passed a joint resolution renewing their protections under the act for another five years. Five years later, this process would start over again. This wasteful procedure would repeatedly jeopardize species that depend on ESA safeguards for survival.
