Tell Congress: Protect Conservation Funding


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.

Protect Conservation and Science Funding

Dear TNC

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.
