Congress and the Department of the Interior are proposing to severely undermine one of our nation's strongest bird conservation laws -- the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.?
Congress and the Department of the Interior are proposing to severely undermine one of our nation's strongest bird conservation laws, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
The House Committee on Natural Resources has included an amendment in the Energy Bill, H.R. 4239, and the Department of the Interior has issued a new policy directive that would absolve oil and gas companies from responsibility for bird deaths in oil pits, on power lines, and from other energy-related infrastructure.
Please take action todayand tell Congress and the Administration to fight for migratory birds and oppose changes to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
