The Department of the Interior is fast-tracking efforts to strip away critical protections in the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA). Proposed changes in its recent Draft Environmental Impact Statement would make permanent the bird-killing policy the agency adopted in 2017, which overturned decades of bipartisan precedent and gives companies a free pass for bird deaths from industrial hazards such as open oil pits and power lines. It’s time for Congress to respond to this attack on America’s birds.
Contact your U.S. Representative to support the Migratory Bird Protection Act. You can find out more and send a letter directly to your own member of Congress through Audubon’s Action Center: http://act.audubon.org/onlineactions/f7KGDIYb40WGTI_7m1voyg2?ms=emshare_ty
