Conservation Action Alerts – Birds and Wildlife Need You!

The only way we’ll be successful in our conservation efforts is with your help.

We know that lawmakers care about your views and opinions. As a constituent, you have a unique ability to convey your concerns about issues affecting birds, wildlife and their habitats.

Helping is easy, won’t take much time, and most importantly, will go a very long way in protecting our birds and wildlife!

 

Oppose Opening Our Oceans To New Offshore Drilling

The federal government has just released a proposal that would open up vast areas of our oceans to offshore drilling. In Washington state, even the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary is on the table for consideration. Across the Pacific Flyway (Alaska to California), almost 160 species of marine birds could face increased risks from infrastructure and spills. Here in Washington, imperiled species like Tufted Puffins and Marbled Murrelets could suffer catastrophic impacts.

Write to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and urge them to reject this plan and instead keep these sensitive areas protected from new offshore drilling.

 

Pledge to Defend the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

We, the American people, oppose drilling in our nation’s wildest refuge. We will not give up. Audubon stands united with other conservation organizations and the Gwich’in people in our efforts to prevent drilling in this nursery for millions of migratory birds, polar bears, and the Porcupine Caribou Herd. We are working together with other groups to collect 200,000 pledges—one for every caribou that depends on the Arctic Refuge.

Take The Pledge

 

Endangered Species Act In Trouble

Congress is moving quickly to gut the Endangered Species Act, America’s strongest and most important law for protecting wildlife. 

The Endangered Species Act has a proven track record of success in providing a safety net that protects our most vulnerable wildlife. It has prevented 99 percent of the species under its care from going extinct, including America’s symbol, the Bald Eagle. We should allow this critical law to continue to protect wildlife for future generations, not undermine it.

Please ask your members of Congress to oppose efforts to weaken the Endangered Species Act.

 

Support Legislative Action On Climate Change – Audubon WA

Looking forward, we anticipate that conservation action at the state and local level will become increasingly important to help us advance policies that protect birds, the places they need, and the communities that steward them. Our elected officials work on policy based on what they hear from the constituents they serve.

Ask for Action on Climate Change.
