Protect America’s Migratory Birds from Extinction

Target: Ryan Zinke, Secretary of Interior Department

Goal: Reinstate vital protections on migratory birds.

The Trump Administration, which continues to categorically destroy the natural environment of this country, is now attacking migratory birds protected under The Migratory Bird Treaty Act. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act is one of the nation’s first conservation laws and is vital to protecting our birds that both inhabit and pass through the United States on migration. Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke recently announced an end to the way the law has traditionally been enforced, a move which is devastating for the birds that had so far been successfully protected.

The law states in plain language that any harming, capturing, hunting, or killing of migratory birds is strictly forbidden. Secretary Zinke has changed the language in an opinion stating how the law will be enforced to state that only “intentional acts” are prohibited, leaving huge loopholes for hunters and industrial zones to harm or kill migratory birds without any repercussions. This move is another attempt to decimate our natural landscape and we will not tolerate this any further. Demand Secretary Zinke undo his harm to the law at once.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Zinke,

You recently led the charge in changing how The Migratory Bird Treaty Act will be enforced, to the detriment of countless migratory birds in our country. We believe your change to implementation of this vital migratory bird law is not only predatory, but malicious in nature. Your reasoning for this change is absolutely unacceptable and we will not stand for destruction of our natural landscape by someone who only seeks to exploit. This rule change is outrageous and you should be held accountable for such a mistake.

We have had enough of the environmental bullying by the Trump Administration and we are seeking to undo all of your damage before it’s too late. We demand that you take the measures to reverse this decision immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Is the USA turning into China when it comes to Animal Welfare and the environment? Seems that way.

  2. With so many species in peril, we must be doing more to protect them. This is just sad.

    Ever since this creep has been in office, every living thing or persons has been attacked. When does it end with this creep Trump. He is ruining are country. Please Mr. Secretary Zinke can you see to it that at least are birds can be protected. This is getting sickening that Trump wants to KILL everything and everybody. WAKE-UP before its to late.
