“The Endangered Species Act holds sacred the flora and fauna that make our planet the wonderful entity that it is. It provides a protective limit for economic growth which greed can cause to metastasize regardless of the consequences. Without the Endangered Species Act and its protections against pesticide misuse, my children and grandchildren will liken wolves and whales to unicorns and dragons – only creatures of fantasy.”
