END THE ATTACK ON U.S. WILDERNESS AND THE 1964 WILDERNESS ACT: KILL HR 4089.

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Petition Statement

I am adamantly opposed to H.R. 4089, the so-called Sportsmen's Heritage Act. This bill is a thinly disguised attempt to destroy the National Wilderness Preservation System and the 1964 Wilderness Act. I urge you to use every means at your disposal to ensure that this bill dies without ever seeing the light of day in the Senate.
There are currently 7,262 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

On April 17, 2012, the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 4089, the Sportsmen's Heritage Act, supposedly to protect and enhance opportunities for recreational hunting, fishing, and shooting.

This bill is a thinly disguised measure to gut the 1964 Wilderness Act and protections for every acre of the National Wilderness Preservation System.

Supported by the National Rifle Association, the bill would allow the dismemberment of wilderness through road, dam and building construction, as well as extensive habitat modifications. We are petitioning Senate Majority Leader Reid who can prevent this destructive legislation from going any further.

This petition is in partnership with The REWILDING INSTITUTE. http://rewilding.org/rewildit/
