Freshwater turtles and tortoises are in serious trouble. Though they have survived since the age of the dinosaurs, today over HALF of all species are threatened with extinction. WCS is launching a global effort to save more than a dozen of the most endangered turtles and tortoises through its New York Zoos and Aquarium, and Global Health and Global Conservation Programs. But to ensure these beloved creatures won't be wiped off the face of the planet, we need your help.
Congress is marking up the budget for the Wildlife Without Borders Program, and if their constituents don't speak up, conservation programs that protect freshwater turtles and tortoises could be cut. Please tell your representatives that these animals need our help NOW. Congress can help stop them from slipping away forever.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Wildlife Conservation Society.
Dear [Decision Maker],
