The 2011 spending bill passed by the U.S. Congress cut conservation programs by unprecedented levels. While conservation and environmental programs should shoulder a fair portion of the burden of the budget reductions needed to reduce our national debt, significant cuts run counter to America’s long bi-partisan tradition of protecting land and water for people and nature.
Help us save future funding for these programs. These are programs that protect the health and safety of the water we drink, the food we eat, the air we breathe and the habitat for America’s plants and animals. These are the programs that protect our national parks and landmarks, our national wildlife areas, our coasts and waterways.
Funding to help prevent deforestation around the world helps to combat climate change
