Whenever we can protect critical habitat for a threatened or endangered species, we give that species a better chance at recovery. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to protect more than 375,000 acres of critical habitat for mountain caribou in northern Idaho and northeastern Washington.
Please write to the service in support of this action and encourage the service to protect even more territory south of the designated area to provide even greater support for mountain caribou. Whenever we save a species from the brink of extinction and preserve enough of the habitat for the species to thrive, we keep a part of our natural world intact for future generations.
