The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a critical role to play in protecting the national heritage of the country – from iconic wildlife species to clean air and water. Throughout the years, the agency has created some of the most important and effective environmental protections, including the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. It has also succeeded in saving species from extinction and improving the quality of habitat for others. The agency’s work is indispensable and it is no secret that its work does not bear discounting.

But now, the agency is under attack, warns International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) in its petition launched in the matter. Congress is currently threatening to roll back the vital EPA protections for clean air and water and some of its members are going as far as to seek to eliminate the EPA altogether.

At the same time that the agency is being seriously threatened, the Trump administration is restricting the release of agency data, freezing hiring and grants, and actively working to eradicate rules that protect the environment and public health, as well as calling for considerable cuts to the EPA’s budget.

One of the species that was saved from extinction thanks to the efforts of the EPA, is the bald eagle. As IFAW points out, only around 40 years ago, the species was in danger of extinction because of habitat destruction, illegal shooting, and the contamination of the eagle’s food source due to, in a large part, the insecticide DDT. If it had not been for the actions undertaken by the agency, it is almost for sure that those beautiful and majestic animals would not have been in the country today.

The critical work of the EPA has to be protected – since it safeguards the natural resources required for all of us to be able to live a healthy life. The EPA being strong means clean air and water for humans and animals alike.
