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.
We’re contacting your representatives right now!
Hang on a moment — we will confirm their response just as soon as it comes through.
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.
It's simple: we can't protect our nation's air, water and natural places unless we protect conservation funding.
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 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.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.
