Help Save Our Migratory Birds!

The Western Tanager is one of the many bird species that has benefited from the Neotropical Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
Each spring, millions of birds travel thousands of miles from Latin America and the Caribbean to their breeding grounds as far north as the Arctic. Months later, as the temperature drops and winter sets in, these migrants make the long trip back to warmer southern climates.

These Neotropical migrants face increasing threats—habitat loss, invasive species, disease, and a changing climate. Since its inception in 2002, the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act has provided millions of dollars for vital conservation efforts, including monitoring efforts, habitat restoration, education, and other projects in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean. But many essential conservation projects remain unfunded. Find out more.

Please urge your U.S. Representative and Senators to cosponsor legislation to reauthorize this vital program with increased funding.

Send the sample letter below, or edit it with your own words to explain why protecting migratory songbirds is important to YOU.

Subject: Protect Migratory Birds - Please Support S 690/HR 2213

As a supporter of the National Audubon Society, a constituent, and someone who cares about protecting the world's migratory birds, I strongly urge you to cosponsor S 690/HR 2213 to reauthorize the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act.

The Act supports vital conservation projects in 44 U.S. states and territories, 33 Latin American and Caribbean countries, and 12 Canadian provinces, benefiting roughly 3 million acres of migratory bird habitat.

Sadly, many projects still need funding. Current funding can not keep pace with applications for grants. Without increases in funding, the songs of Cerulean Warblers and many other neotropical birds may soon fade from America's landscapes.

S 690/HR 2213 would reauthorize the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act and provide a much-needed increase in vital conservation dollars.

Migratory birds are more than just a treasured part of our natural world; they also play a critical role in supporting economic and recreational opportunities across the country. I strongly urge you to support S 690/HR 2213 and stand up for America's songbirds.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
