Conservation funding on federal chopping block – you can help
Now is the time to weigh in with your members of Congress and urge them to restore funding for the programs you care about. For specifics, visit the action alert sites of the organizations below who are fighting these cuts:
Ducks Unlimited (working on NAWCA, State Wildlife Grants and other programs)
Environmental Defense Fund (fighting cuts to farm bill conservation programs)
The Nature Conservancy (fighting for a broad suite of programs)
Congressional leaders are currently seeking a compromise between the House’s H.R. 1 (which would cut important conservation programs by 85-100 percent) and more modest cuts favored by Democrats.
