Contact your representatives and senators to tell Congress not to disproportionately cut conservation funding!
The House of Representatives Interior Subcommittee has proposed zeroing out funding for some conservation programs, including the North American Wetlands Conservation Act – essentially eliminating them. Help us tell members of Congress that the government gets a “conservation rebate” from the jobs, taxes and direct spending created by conservation programs.
Conservation cuts are a loss Americans cannot afford
Each year Congress makes important decisions about wildlife habitat conservation programs that directly impact the long-term health of waterfowl populations.
DU's office in Washington, D.C., exists to promote these programs and other wildlife-friendly legislation.
To learn more about DU's office in Washington, read Director of the Governmental Affairs Office's article in DU Magazine, Conservation's Best Kept Secret.
