Tell Congress: Protect Against Cuts to Conservation Funding


It's simple: science and conservation need strong federal funding to tackle our planet's biggest challenges.

This year and every year, we need to speak out so science funding doesn't end up on the chopping block. The Administration's last two budget proposals included devastating cuts — from slashing 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.

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 strong.

Because undermining conservation protections and science programs 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 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.

Undermining conservation 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 a fundamental 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 stewardship by protecting federal funding for conservation and science efforts in final budget appropriations.
