Kirsten Gillibrand

…As President, will you uphold our Endangered Species Act and better fund it, to protect imperiled plants and animals?

“Yes, as president of the United States I will not only fully fund the Endangered Species Act, but I will also increase the funding. I’ve been a leading voice to protect endangered species as senator in the United States. I’ve fought very hard for the gray wolf which is an issue where many western states want to start hunting the gray wolf, but the truth is they haven’t recovered fully and they need more protection. So my track record on actually protecting endangered species is strong and as a president I will make it a priority to protect endangered species.”
