Take a Moment to Help Strengthen 
America’s Most Important Bird Law
In recent months, we’ve heard a lot of distressing headline news: reports about the devastating loss of birds over the last 50 years and predictions of future extinctions due to climate change. 

This year we must pledge to do more than ever before to safeguard the birds we love.

America’s most important bird protection law, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act , has been under attack and was recently weakened, but there is hope! Right now there is a bipartisan bill in Congress aimed at strengthening this landmark law once again. 

Audubon is working to get this bill passed -- and we hope you will join us. It’s easy... simply click the button below to ask our Representatives to support this important bill.
Over the last 100 years, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act has saved millions -- if not billions -- of birds by safeguarding over a thousand bird species. Led by Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-CA), the new bill, H.R. 5552 , will reaffirm current law while creating more certainty for business and creating incentives for innovation to protect birds. 

As of now, there are no co-sponsors from North Carolina. Let’s see if together we can change that -- and work to get this important bill passed into law.

Audubon CEO David Yarnold said “America’s 46 million bipartisan bird lovers don’t ask a lot of Congress on behalf of birds — but this is a bedrock law and a vote that every legislator can take — and it’s a win for birds and for legislators across the aisle.” 

Birds are clearly under threat -- now more than ever before. Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society stands behind Audubon’s fight to strengthen the Migratory Bird Treaty Act . Please join with us in asking your member of Congress to support this important bill

Together, we can help the birds we love.
