Migratory Birds Under Attack: Act Now!

One of the oldest environmental laws in our country, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA), is coming under attack by Members of Congress. The House of Representatives has passed a provision in a fiscal appropriations bill that would bar the Department of Justice from enforcing the MBTA - essentially declaring that it's open season on birds by entities such as large corporations!

We need you to ACT NOW: Tell your Senators to stand up and fight for birds by protecting the Migratory Bird Treaty Act!

Bring Back the
Greater Sage-Grouse


You already know that Greater Sage-Grouse is one of the most iconic and imperiled bird species of the American West. It has already disappeared from a number of states and provinces. Now, in spite of the urgent need for conservation, the U.S. Congress has passed a bill containing a rider that prevents the administration from protecting sage grouse under the Endangered Species Act. Send a letter to President Obama today, urging his administration to stand up for the Endangered Species Act.

Help Congress Pass the 2015 Federal Bird-Safe Buildings Act

Did you know that collisions with glass claim the lives of hundreds of millions of birds in the United States each year?

Birds that have successfully flown thousands of miles on migration can then die in seconds on a pane of glass. Luckily, we have the bird-friendly design strategies and technology needed to make a difference now. Please urge your U.S. Representative to support the 2015 Federal Bird-Safe Buildings Act.

Take the Pledge:
Keep Your Cats Indoors


The transition to keeping cats indoors has enabled cats to live longer, healthier lives, resulting in fewer trips to the veterinarian, and extending the years of mutual companionship. Keeping cats indoors also protects birds and other wildlife from a cat’s instinctive predatory drive. To stand up and be counted among the many cat owners doing their part to protect cats and birds, please Take the Pledge to Keep Cats Indoors. By signing this pledge, you agree or reaffirm your commitment to keep cats safely indoors or on a leash.

Protect Birds and Bees from Toxic Neonic Pesticides

Please write your Member of Congress today and ask her or him to cosponsor H.R. 1284, the Saving America's Pollinators Act of 2015. This bill directs the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to suspend registration of a toxic group of pesticides called neonicotinoids, or "neonics," which are causing serious damage to birds, bees, and aquatic life.

Help Protect Old-Growth Forests to Save Northern Spotted Owls

Please write to President Obama, administration officials, and your Members of Congress today and urge them to support stronger conservation measures for the endangered Northern Spotted Owl. The Northwest Forest Plan which protects the owl's habitat is up for revision, and your voice is needed to keep its protections for the owl and the threatened Marbled Murrelet.

Time to End Bird
Deaths in Pipes


Each year, tens of thousands of birds, including iconic Western Bluebirds, fall into open pipes used for a variety of purposes on public lands in the western United States. Sadly, these birds frequently are trapped and die. PVC mine markers are most numerous, but uncapped fence posts and outhouse vents are other culprits.The USDA Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have taken notice of the problem and started to take steps to prevent these needless deaths, but more needs to be done. Please help us encourage further action!
