SAVING LIFE ON EARTH -
A Plan To Halt The Global Extinction Crisis
The Saving Life on Earth plan says the United States must: Take a global leadership role by declaring an extinction crisis national emergency and investing $100 billion to stem the disappearance of the world’s wildlife and plants, protect irreplaceable places around the world, and end the illegal trafficking and overexploitation of wildlife and plants. Conserve 30% of U.S. lands and waters for wildlife by 2030 and 50% by 2050, and clarify that the primary mandate of federal public lands is to protect biological diversity, ensure clean water, provide recreational opportunities, increase climate resiliency, and sequester carbon dioxide. Restore the full power of the Endangered Species Act and invest $20 billion to save the 1,800 endangered species in the United States, along with dedicating $10 billion to state fish and game agencies to ensure abundant population levels. Crack down on all forms of air and water pollution, toxics and pesticides to protect sensitive species from the harms caused by the modern industrial world; require 100% recycling mandates for all plastics while moving away from plastic production. Stem the spread of invasive species by investing in new technologies and establishing new rules to detect invasive species in global trade, enacting zero-discharge requirements for cargo ships, and removing invasive species from critical wildlife habitats

WILDLIFE SOS -
“The primary reason for the founding of Wildlife SOS has been to rescue and rehabilitate wildlife in distress in both urban and rural environments. Wildlife SOS rescues a number of orphaned, injured, and displaced wildlife found in cities and locations from wherever they work in India.

Their conservation work includes: Leopard Conservation; Elephant Conservation and Care; Habitat Conservation, Anti-Poaching; ‘Dancing Bear’ Project; Research and Conservation and much more.

“The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) is an international treaty to prevent species from becoming endangered or extinct because of international trade. Under this treaty, countries work together to regulate the international trade of animal and plant species and ensure that this trade is not detrimental to the survival of wild populations. Any trade in protected plant and animal species should be sustainable, based on sound biological understanding and principles”.

CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY -
Mission: Saving Life On Earth
“At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.
We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive”.
