The North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA)
is vital to wetlands protection and restoration and has conserved almost 27 million acres of wetlands and associated uplands
. It's been so effective that every federally funded dollar is matched by at least $3 at the local level by states or conservation organizations like Ducks Unlimited.
All 50 states will significantly benefit from the positive impacts this program has on the environment.
Please show your support for one of the federal government's most cost-effective conservation programs by asking your member of Congress to sign onto the Dear Colleague letter encouraging funding for NAWCA in Fiscal Year 2014
. The letter is being circulated by Representative John Dingell (MI) and Representative Don Young (AK).
Thank you for all of your help in supporting wetlands conservation.
