Statement on EPA nomination
As the Delaware state affiliate for the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), Delaware Nature Society agrees with National Wildlife Federation's (NWF) decision to oppose Scott Pruitt’s nomination as Environmental Protection Agency Administrator. While it is highly unusual for NWF or Delaware Nature Society to take such a strong stance against a cabinet nominee, we have made this decision based on our belief that America and Delaware needs an EPA Administrator who respects sound science, protects our outdoor heritage, and will uphold our bedrock conservation protections, and puts the interests of all Americans above special interests.

If you agree with our concerns, please contact the congressional leaders in your state. View contact information by state: Contact your Senator
We also thank Senator Chris Coons and Senator Tom Carper who have voiced their concerns on the Pruitt nomination and intend to oppose his appointment.
Thank you for your continued support of our efforts to uphold our conservation mission, as well as the protection of clean water, air and open space.
