This bill would undermine the ability of wildlife professionals to list any species in Pennsylvania as state threatened or state endangered. It would politicize and subject decisions to a lengthy review process involving those with no expertize in science or wildlife management. It would erode the Fish and Boat Commission’s ability to designate wild trout streams. Pennsylvania has a long and proud tradition of allowing independent commissions to manage and protect birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, and amphibians. House Bill 1576 would end that tradition. Contact your PA House Representative to stop the attack on our wildlife and prevent their decline and extinction.
