Act to Save Birds

National Audubon urges members to help defend the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA), one of our nation’s oldest and most important wildlife conservation laws, especially to oppose any effort that undermines the ability to address what’s called “incidental take” of birds under the MBTA.

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act, enacted in 1918, is credited with saving many species from extinction, such as the Wood Duck, Sandhill Crane, Snowy Egret and more. This law protects more than 1,000 species, most of which are not covered by other laws, while also allowing for the regulation of hunting.
