We need your help asking Congress to support the WILD Act, a bipartisan bill that contains several measures imperative to conserving wildlife and wild places.
This bill re-authorizes the Multinational Species Conservation Fund, a U.S. Fish & Wildlife program that is vital to the protection of elephants and rhinos, great apes, marine turtles, and tigers.
The WILD Act would also be great news for tortoises and freshwater turtles, expanding the Marine Turtle Conservation Act grant program to establish a new source of funding for conserving these species. About 60 percent of tortoises and freshwater turtles are listed as threatened or endangered according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Some are already either extinct in the wild or have less than 100 individuals remaining, so this help can't come soon enough.
Please urge your members of Congress to support this bill. Send the letter below to protect turtles, elephants and others in danger.
