“President Obama’s endangered species budget request barely maintains the status quo, leaving most endangered species no closer to hope of recovery. Hundreds of species still need protection under the Endangered Species Act, and sadly this budget request means that many of them, which have been waiting decades for protection while hovering on the brink of extinction, will have to keep on waiting” — CBD endangered species policy director Brett Hartl
“In its proposal the administration requested approximately $18.8 million to list and protect highly imperiled species under the Endangered Species Act and another $4 million to designate critical habitat for listed species — a small increase from last year, but roughly the same amount of funding received in 2010, prior to three years of cuts under budget sequestration. The Fish and Wildlife Service’s overall budget for the endangered species program remained approximately the same at around $170 million, less than the cost of a single F-35C fighter jet.” — press release
