National Alert: Endangered Cats and Dogs Need Your Help

The United States Congress is currently considering legislation to establish a new fund to provide much-needed grant money to conservation projects that help conserve threatened and endangered wild cat and dog species in developing countries microsoft word auf deutsch herunterladen.

The pending legislation, H.R. 1464 (introduced by Congressman Udall of New Mexico) and S. 1033 (introduced by Senator Lieberman of Connecticut), would establish a fund “to restore and perpetuate healthy populations of rare felids and rare canids in the wild; and to assist in the conservation of rare felid and rare canid populations worldwide.” This fund would be authorized to include as much as $5,000,000 each year from 2008 to 2012.

Please write your elected federal officials today and urge them to pass the Great Cats and Rare Canids Act of 2007.
