Conservation Action Alerts – Birds and Wildlife Need You!

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

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


Marbled Murrelet Action Alert

Advocate for more protection of Marbled Murrelet habitat

The Board of Natural Resources (BNR) has the final say on which conservation strategy is adopted for the Marbled Murrelet, and they can and must do more to protect vital habitat. This is a critical decision point that will affect the survival of the species in Washington. More conservation of habitat must be included in the plan and the BNR and Commissioner Franz have the ability to make that call.

Now is the time to do what is necessary to recover this imperiled species in our state. The BNR needs to hear from you that you support additional protection for Marbled Murrelet habitat on state-managed forest lands. Email the board members now!


Protect Birds From Climate Change

Audubon’s science shows that almost half of North American bird species are threatened by climate change. The survival of some of our most beloved species is dependent on our ability to quickly and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in part by shifting to clean energy sources.

Ask your elected officials to support the Better Energy Storage Technology Act of 2019! The Better Energy Storage Technology (BEST) Act of 2019 invests in the innovative technology needed to make the transition to clean energy sources.


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.


Urge your Representative to Protect Seabirds

Today, there are three hundred million fewer seabirds in the world than there were in 1950, a population decline of seventy percent. Recently, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife drafted a recovery plan for the declining population of the Tufted Puffin in Washington state. One of several reasons for the decline is the lack of prey fish.

A new bill in Congress would help these essential fish populations to rebound and become more stable for the seabirds and other marine wildlife, people, and economies that depend on them. 

Ask your U.S. Representative to support the Forage Fish Conservation Act.  


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.
