Bald eagles, wood storks, loggerhead sea turtles, brown pelicans, American alligators, and red-cockaded woodpeckers. These are some of the species that have rebounded dramatically in Newt’s home state of Georgia since enactment of the Endangered Species Act in 1973. They join a growing list of other wildlife that have similarly benefitted from this far-sighted law elsewhere in the nation, including gray wolves, whooping cranes, grizzly bears, black-footed ferrets, and California condors.
At Gingrich 360, we are dedicated to conservation of the natural world. When Newt was kid, he dreamed of being either a zookeeper or a vertebrate paleontologist. In 1953, when Newt was only ten, he went to the Harrisburg City Council and made an appeal for a zoo for Pennsylvania’s capital city. Today, we believe in building on this life-long effort and protecting America’s endangered animals and their habitats.
