Subject: Tell your Elected Officials Not to Slash Funding for Bird Conservation!


Painted Bunting by Greg Lavaty, texastargetbirds.org   
Dear John,
The House of Representatives has cut over $50 million in funding for key bird 
conservation programs in its budget.  If passed by the Senate, these 
destructive cuts will harm birds and other wildlife, and undo decades of 
successful conservation efforts.
Three of our most valuable programs are threatened by the proposed cuts: the 
Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act Grants Program, State Wildlife 
Grants and the North American Wetlands Conservation Act.

Representatives and Senators need to hear from bird advocates like you today to 
ensure that these critical bird conservation programs continue to be funded.

Thank you for your help in ensuring the next generation of Americans will have 
a chance to appreciate the native birds we enjoy today.
