Take Action

Last week, the US House Natural Resources Committee passed the bipartisan Recovering America’s Wildlife Act. The bill would provide much needed funding to every state and territory to help protect 12,000 species that are currently at risk. Iconic species such as the rare whooping crane, monarch butterfly and the wood bison would benefit greatly from the bill. Moreover, the Act could create more than 30,000 new conservation-related jobs. 
To learn more about the act, check out this insightful report by PBS.
