Tell Congress: Stand up for science funding

US
Climate Change
Land & Water Conservation

We believe in the power of science to address the greatest threats we face as a planet. Science is essential to restoring degraded coral reefs, saving threatened species, securing clean water for all, and slowing the onslaught of climate change.

But the reality is the Administration's proposed budget makes devastating cuts to vital scientific programs we need for a brighter future—from cutting the EPA Office of Research and Development budget in half, to completely eliminating funding for UN climate change research and NOAA coastal and marine research.

Here's the bottom line: Without critical scientific programs like these, we will fall behind—and more special places will be lost forever.

We need you to add your voice today to protect science and keep innovation off the chopping block. Take a stand right now and tell your representatives and senators to say no to cuts to scientific research.

Protect science and conservation funding

Dear TNC

Congress must act to preserve funding for science that is vital to conservation 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.

Undermining conservation doesn't just hurt wildlife and our nature's treasures it harms local communities and our national economy. Natural resources and outdoor recreation are an essential foundation of the American economy. They create billions of dollars in annual revenue, and 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 duty by protecting federal funding for science and conservation efforts.

Sincerely,
