On Wednesday, July 11, Congress will be voting on a bill that would devastate fish populations and starve the seabirds and other marine wildlife that depend on them, including birds that not only depend on marine coastal waters but also spend time in the Great Lakes such as Caspian Terns, American White Pelicans, Bald Eagles and Common Loons. The so-called "Modern Fish Act" (HR 200) will make overfishing a threat once again for seabirds and coastal economies. We must stop HR 200.

Keep oceans fishy, tell your U.S. Representative to vote “no” on HR 200: http://ow.ly/eFCs30kLvCH

ACTION CENTER

Protect America's Land and Water Conservation Legacy

Please ask your Members of Congress to support robust funding and permanent reauthorization for the Land and Water Conservation Fund
Since 1964, LWCF has helped conserve seven million acres of land across the United States, with projects in all 50 states and nearly every county. The program is funded through the sale of preexisting offshore oil and gas leases, which means that it comes at no additional cost to the taxpayer. This exchange is based on the idea that when these extractive activities occur, they should help fund land and water conservation elsewhere. Over the years, the funds have been used to protect national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, and battlefields while simultaneously providing grants for state and local parks and recreation areas.

It has helped safeguard numerous Important Bird Areas, such as California’s Point Reyes National Sea Shore, has protected Cerulean Warbler habitat in Arkansas and wintering areas for Bald Eagles in Washington, and is helping to restore the Everglades. Thanks to LWCF, every year we see the expansion of our network of protected land, improvement in our access to outdoor recreation, and more essential places for birds protected from development.

Please urge your members of Congress to cosponsor legislation in the House and Senate (HR 502 & S 569) that would save the program from expiring on September 30th and permanently reauthorize it to ensure it will never lapse again.

Audubon Advisory

July 14, 2018

As MBTA Turns 100, Audubon Defends the Law in Court and in Congress

July 3rd marked the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. On that day in 1918, America’s most important bird protection law went into effect. Throughout 2018, we are celebrating this milestone as the Year of the Bird, yet at the same time, we are defending the law in the face of unprecedented attacks. Read more.
