The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) is our nation’s most important tool for preventing bird deaths – and now, this landmark law is under attack.
With millions of birds killed each year from uncovered oil waste pits, power lines and other dangers, the MBTA has been key to making sure companies take simple steps to cut down on these needless deaths – and that when their practices kill birds, they’re held responsible for helping undo the damage.
That’s about to change under a controversial new proposal from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service which lets those companies off the hook for the harm they cause to birds.
Don’t let this happen: Add your voice and demand that the FWS keeps critical protections for migratory birds!
