Dear Wildlife Supporter,

They're among our country's most special places -- so special, that they've earned some of the strongest protections offered by the U.S. government.

But some in Congress want to overturn decades of protections for America's beloved Wilderness Areas -- and allow new mining, logging and other harmful practices to invade these special places.

Stop the latest attack on our wildlife and wild places: Urge your U.S. Representative to oppose HR 4089, a bill that would undermine vital protections for federally designated Wilderness Areas and other public lands.

A vote on this terrible bill is expected as early as tomorrow, so please take action today.

The bill before the U.S. House this week contains harmful provisions that would reduce or eliminate important protections for America's most precious public lands.

It would allow recreational off-road vehicles to invade federally designated wilderness areas -- something that has never been allowed before. It would also open the door to new logging, mining and extraction of fossil fuels in these special places.

Speak out now for our public lands. Urge your U.S. Representative to oppose HR 4089.

HR 4089 would also eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency's authority to regulate toxic lead in ammunition and fishing equipment. This dangerous neurotoxin can poison or kill eagles, bears and other wildlife that feed on prey tainted by lead fragments.

Urge your U.S. Representative to stand up for the health of our Wilderness Areas and other public lands. Take action today.

Thank you for all you do to protect our wildlife and wild places.

Mary Elizabeth Beetham,  Defenders of Wildlife Sincerely,

Mary Beth Beetham
