The Trump Administration’s latest budget proposal once again calls for stripping much of the critical funding required to protect our lands and waters, study environmental threats, reduce risks to communities from extreme weather events and improve public health.
The biggest threats include major cuts to the budgets of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of the Interior, along with eliminating funding for programs like the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
It’s simple: We can’t protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and our nation’s natural places unless we keep essential conservation and science funding off the chopping block. Together, we must call on members of Congress to ensure that funding levels stay strong as they craft the federal budget.
Because gutting funding for conservation doesn’t just hurt wildlife and natural treasures—it harms local communities and our national economy.
Stand with us now and tell Congress to protect funding for conservation.

America needs to honor our commitments to global climate action. Call for strong and continued U.S. leadership.
The lands that the endangered Florida panther calls home are at risk. Only 180 of these majestic cats are left, and every acre of habitat is critical. Call on Congress today to protect the natural resources the panther and other wildlife depends on.
Invasive species run amok in our lakes, parks -- and even in our own backyards. They overrun native plants and damage the lands and waters that plants and animals need to survive.
Congress is close to taking a critical step to reduce U.S. energy use -- an essential strategy in the fight against climate change. But unless they hear from you now, this vital legislation will go unpassed, increasing threats to nature and communities.
There’s a leafy superhero in your backyard. How much do you know about the power of trees?
Protect Conservation and Science Funding
Congress must act to preserve funding for essential conservation and environmental protection efforts to strengthen our economy, create jobs, protect clean air and water, and preserve the unique natural legacy that is essential to our nation's future.Gutting conservation funding doesn't just hurt wildlife and our natural treasures, it harms local communities, our health, and our national economy. Natural resources and outdoor recreation are major economic drivers, generating billions of dollars in annual revenue and supporting millions of jobs. Federal funding is essential to meeting our responsibilities as stewards of this planet and our country's valuable natural wonders. I urge you to commit to this stewardship by protecting federal funding for conservation and science priorities in the federal budget.
