Import Action Alert

June 18th, 2021|

HELP SAVE THE MIGRATORY BIRD PROTECTION ACT The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) has been one of our nation’s most effective bird conservation laws for over 100 years.  During the last administration, a new federal rule severely weakened the MBTA, ending enforcement of a provision that holds industry accountable for bird deaths. Recently a new act has been proposed by some members of Congress to restore and expand the protections provided by the MBTA. The Migratory Bird Protection Act would regulate incidental bird mortalities by requiring mitigation fees for unavoidable impacts, and encouraging the use of best practices to reduce bird mortality. Please click on this action link to ask your Representative and Senators to be original co-sponsors of the Migratory Bird Protection Act now! Tell Congress to Protect Migratory Birds! (abcbirds.org)
