The House of Representatives is planning to cut over $50 million in funding for key bird conservation programs in its budget. If passed by the full House and Senate, these destructive cuts will harm birds and other wildlife, and undo decades of successful conservation efforts.
• The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act, the only federal U.S. grants program specifically dedicated to the conservation of our migrant birds throughout the Americas
• State Wildlife Grants, the nation’s core program for preventing birds and wildlife from becoming endangered in addition to supporting strategic conservation investments in every state and territory
• The North American Wetlands Conservation Act, which provides funding for conservation projects that benefit wetland birds
