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.

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.

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 encouragefurther action!

Marbled Murrelet, Thomas Hamer
Marbled Murrelet in Trouble

The Marbled Murrelet, a rare seabird of the North Pacific, nests in trees older than 200 years. The species is now endangered, and logging of old-growth forests is a major cause of its decline. That's why we at ABC are concerned about legislation that would intensify logging of old-growth in the Pacific Northwest. The O&C Land Grant Act would increase logging on 2.6 million acres of federal forests in western Oregon, destroying as much as 20 percent of the Marbled Murrelet’s remaining habitat in that area. Urge your Senator to oppose the O&C Land Grant Act and stop habitat destruction for this and other Western birds!
