Make Bird Conservation a Priority in Congress
Right now, the U.S. Congress is working to put together a bill to fund the government for Fiscal Year 2017. Congress has an opportunity to boost much-needed funding levels for bird conservation programs as a result of the budget compromise last fall. But much more is at stake.
One of the “riders” in this year’s spending bill prohibits funding Endangered Species Act protections for the Greater Sage-Grouse. That means that the species would have no safety net if populations continue their rapid decline is spite of substantial conservation efforts being made now.
Please act now! Tell your Senators and Representative: Let’s make protecting the Greater Sage-Grouse, and other birds and wildlife, a priority. Thank you. Take Action Here
Our mission is to preserve the earth′s biological diversity and to secure the future of threatened bird species in their natural environments. We work to fulfill this mission through education, propagation, field studies and rehabilitation.
The World Bird Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides refuge to over 270 residents and rehabilitation and emergency care for up to 400 patients every year. We receive no state, federal or county funding and rely on donations from the public, corporate and foundation supporters to achieve our mission.
