Fighting Legislative Threats to Nongame and Endangered Species

 

On numerous occasions, one or more members of the Kansas Legislature who are generally opposed to conservation of imperiled wildlife--if the presence of an at-risk species and/or critical habitat delay or impede, in any way, development activities--have attempted to eviscerate the 1975 Kansas Nongame and Endangered Species Conservation Act. On every occasion, Audubon of Kansas has stepped forward to alert members and others who care about wildlife conservation, prepared science-based position papers for testimony before legislative committees, and made known the importance of this Act through outreach to the media.
