The U.S. Senate is now considering the bipartisan Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Enhancements Act of 2022, an important bill that would provide a major funding increase to migratory bird conservation, as well as more equitable access to the funding.
This new bill would boost the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA) — the only federal grants program specifically dedicated to the conservation of migratory birds across the Western Hemisphere.
Saving migratory birds requires collaboration from experts and communities throughout the Americas. Since 2002, the NMBCA has supported more than 500 conservation projects in 36 countries, on more than 4.2 million acres of critical bird habitat. Nearly 400 migratory bird species benefit from these efforts, including the Red Knot and Cerulean Warbler.
Please let your U.S. Senators know that birds matter to you! Ask them to co-sponsor the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Enhancements Act of 2022.
