Stop Congress From Threatening Vulnerable Fish Species

Target: Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader, House of Representatives

Goal: Do not pass bill that would legalize overfishing.

A bill introduced back in January of this year intends to roll back the laws against overfishing set in place over ten years ago. With several aquatic species already in danger due to people violating the existing law, this repeal could mean the extinction of many more. This new law would give the green light to fisheries to deplete nearly all of the planet’s aquatic wildlife, snuffing out vulnerable species before they had the chance to repopulate and damaging our ecosystem.

This is yet another attempt by the current political administration to destroy all of the hard work we have done to improve this planet’s well-being in the last eight years. Nearly every law and regulation set in place to improve the quality of our air and water, to protect wildlife and national parks, and to normalize renewable energy sources has been challenged or threatened in some way, and this attempt to legalize overfishing is just another bullet being fired.

We cannot let this bill become a law. Sign this petition to demand this bill be voted down so that we can continue to protect vulnerable species of fish from extinction.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Representative Pelosi,

The House of Representatives has introduced a bill rolling back the laws and regulations against overfishing. If passed, this law would allow fisheries to deplete the ocean’s entire population of fish and other aquatic wildlife, as overfishing would hinder their attempts to repopulate.

This bill is extremely dangerous to the well-being of our oceans and aquatic wildlife, and yet another attempt by the current administration to undo all the hard work we have done in the past eight years to protect our environment. We cannot let another one of our environmental regulations be threatened. Please ensure that this bill is voted down, so that we may continue to protect vulnerable fish species and other aquatic wildlife.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Stop messing and undermining nature. Keep it up and sooner or later everyone will starve to death. We need animals to balance living and growing on this planet.
