The Yazoo Pumps threatens to destroy 200,000 acres of Mississippi Delta wetlands

Right now a project called the Yazoo Pumps threatens to destroy 200,000 acres of Mississippi Delta wetlands – the home of the Louisiana black bear. The Environmental Protection Agency recently announced a plan to stop the Yazoo Pumps, but we need your help to make sure there is a groundswell of public support for this plan. Write the EPA today to say how important this is to you! May 5th is the fast-approaching deadline to send your official public comment to the Environmental Protection Agency supporting its plan to stop the Yazoo Pumps. For the first time in nearly 20 years, the EPA is using its "veto authority" to stop the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from constructing the environmentally destructive Yazoo Pumps project. But for the final veto to go through, the EPA needs to hear from you that you want this project gone. Just one minute of your time will help protect 200,000 acres of Mississippi Delta wetlands that would be drained and destroyed by the pumps. These are the same wetlands where Theodore Roosevelt famously refused to shoot a bear that had been tied to a tree – an action that sparked the creation of the teddy bear. Stopping this project will also protect some of the best wildlife habitat in the heart of the Mississippi River Flyway, keep several wildlife refuges and national forests healthy and save taxpayers more than $220 million! On April 17th, hundreds of people came to the public hearing in Vicksburg, Mississippi, to support the EPA's plan to veto the pumps. Now YOU can help by personalizing and sending comments to the EPA to make sure it "Dumps the Pumps" to protect Mississippi's precious wetlands and wildlife. Send your message today before the May 5th deadline. Let's flood the EPA with messages urging it to protect this important wildlife habitat!
