Tell Congress to Save America's Wildlife

Wildlife

The whooping crane is one of the rarest birds in North America, with fewer than 830 of them left on Earth. Wetland conversion, habitat loss and hunting pressures have pushed the population to dangerously low numbers. Reduced to just fragments of their historic range, the whooping crane is running out of space it needs to survive.

And it's just one of the thousands of species in need of conservation help. More than one third of America's fish and wildlife species are at risk of extinction today. The alarming loss of biodiversity is not just a threat to species themselves, but to the communities, jobs and economies that depend on them.

State fish and wildlife agencies could do more to protect at-risk species before they slide toward extinction, but current funding levels are less than 5 percent of what is necessary to halt biodiversity loss. That's why Congress must pass the Recovering America's Wildlife Act (RAWA) to dramatically increase funding for local and state efforts needed to save struggling wildlife before it's too late.

Add your name now to tell Congress you're counting on them to pass RAWA and save America's threatened wildlife. Time is running out to conserve our most vulnerable species while we still can.

Pass Recovering America's Wildlife Act

Dear TNC

I agree that we must take immediate action to protect America's at-risk and endangered wildlife. The alarming loss of biodiversity is not just a threat to species themselves, but to the communities and economies that depend on them. The Recovering America's Wildlife Act (RAWA) could generate as many as 33,600 direct jobs every year in fields ranging from construction to forestry, as well as improve the country's outdoor recreation economy. I'm adding my voice to support passing RAWA, a bill that will boost the critically underfunded state and local fish and wildlife agencies before more species are at risk of extinction.

Sincerely,
