Established by the Center for Biological Diversity in 2007 as a way to spotlight those who do their very worst to destroy wild places and drive species to extinction.

Montana Senator Jon Tester.

    A person you might want to consider is Montana Senator Jon Tester who stuck a rider on a must-pass budget bill that eliminated federal protections from wolves in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and parts of three other states.

    The bill marks the first time that politicians, rather than scientists, decided when a species should lose its protections. Since Tester’s bill, more than 600 wolves in the West have been killed by hunters, trappers and government agents. And Tester just added another provision to another bill, aiming to ban the government from saving thousands of eagles, condors, swans and other birds from being lethally poisoned by lead hunting ammunition left in the wild.
