Cosponsor the U.S. Foundation for International Conservation
Destruction of natural environments around the world are contributing to global temperature rise and loss of biodiversity. But it's not too late to slow climate change and save wildlife at the same time. Save nature to turn the tide on climate change.
H.R. 1298/S.618, The U.S. Foundation for International Conservation Act, is critical for the enduring success of conservation programs: It would incentivize philanthropic giving to match government funds which provide long-term, predictable funding for core protected area management programs; and ensure these strongholds of biodiversity continue to provide economic, environmental, social, and cultural benefits both locally and globally.
This bill must get across the finish line. Take action now, urging your Members of Congress to support H.R. 1298/S.618 right away.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Wildlife Conservation Society.
