Your Help Needed - Stop House Bill that Slashes FWS Budget by 27% and instead Support Senate version
Tuesday, September 10, 2013
The House has proposed a funding bill for Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14) that would slash the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service budget by 27 percent - taking programs like the Refuge System down to levels not seen for a decade, and eliminates completely numerous grant programs. The Senate, on the other hand, restores funding for the Refuge System, the Land and Water Conservation Fund and grant programs.

Urge Secretary Jewell to Protect the Izembek NWR!
The House Natural Resources Committee is voting on H.R. 638 Wednesday, July 24th! Take Action Now!

We need your help to put a stop to a proposed road that would slice through the biological heart of Alaska’s Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, a designated Wilderness that is home to brown bears, fox, and caribou, as well as a critical stopover point for many migratory birds. Supporters of the road claim that it is needed to safely evacuate residents of rural King Cove during medical emergencies, but taxpayers have already spent $37.5 million on an effective solution to this very problem. Please urge Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell to keep this amazing place protected!
