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!
Defend the Migratory Bird Act
This year, as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA), our most important bird protection law is under attack. Legislation in Congress (HR 4239), and a new interpretation of the law by the administration, would end the ability to hold industries accountable for bird deaths.
These proposals would prevent enforcement of “incidental” bird deaths, removing incentives for companies to adopt practices that protect birds from threats such as oil waste pits, and eliminating penalties for companies that kill substantial numbers of birds, including from large oil spills.
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.
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.
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.
