This bill will provide needed funds for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and other wildlife professionals to implement the Tennessee Wildlife Action Plan, which is a roadmap to slowing and reversing the decline of 100s of wildlife species in our state.  Please prioritize passage of this extremely important legislation.

ACTION ALERT….immediate attention needed!

After passing in the House of Representatives this summer, the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (RAWA) is about to become law —  it just needs one final push.

If passed, RAWA will provide a major funding increase for state, territory, and tribal conservation programs – a huge win for birds and other declining wildlife.

With a final victory so close, we need to raise our voices even louder. Please take the next step for declining birds and wildlife by calling your U.S. Senators today (script included).
