Red-cockaded woodpecker populations have been in trouble for decades, because of damage to the forests where they live. But the birds have been making a comeback in recent years, partly because of a conservation program—the Land and Water Conservation Fund—which helps protect their habitat.
For over five decades, this important initiative has funded more than 41,000 parks, wildlife refuges and other outdoor spaces in nearly every county in America. Earlier this year, Congress voted overwhelmingly – with support from both Democrats and Republicans—to permanently reauthorize this program. Now Congress needs to take the next step and permanently fund it.
Make a difference for the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker by asking your Senator to vote for permanent funding for the conservation program that has helped restore bird and wildlife habitat all across the nation.
