Migratory Bird Treaty Act Under Fire

Posted on Jun 17, 2015

Please take a minute to fill out this petition through the American Bird Conservancy to uphold the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. If it was not for the MBTA we would not be able to enjoy many of the birds that we see around us every day. For example, the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds may have been moot as likely all long-legged waders, terns and other shorebirds would have been extirpated.

Birds like this Piping Plover may already be extinct without the Migratory Bird Treaty Act

How can it be that we are trying to unravel some of the 20th century’s greatest conservation achievements, pushed forward by many people like Roger Tory Peterson, here in the 21st century? Please spread the word and get many people to sign this! support.abcbirds.org/ProtectMBTA
