The Migratory Bird Treaty Act—one of the oldest and most successful conservation laws in the United States—will be gutted unless we act now. The Act currently protects 1,000 bird species from intentional and preventable harm, such as oil spills in coastal waters, poorly placed transmission lines, and other actions that result in bird deaths.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently signaled that the agency would no longer enforce the Migratory Bird Treaty Act except in the extremely limited cases of purposefully causing death and harm. This is a drastic reduction in protection for vulnerable species.
This is unacceptable! We need these strong protections to stay in place to prevent the deaths of millions of migratory birds.
Your signature can make a difference! Sign the petition and call on President Trump to reinstate protections and uphold the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
