Thank Our Congressional Champions of the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act of 2019

We are thrilled to announce that the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act of 2019 was introduced last week with bi-partisan support! In the Senate, the bill was led by Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM), and was co-sponsored by Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Cory Booker (D- NJ), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Bernie Sanders (D-VT), Jon Tester (D-MT), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), and Ron Wyden (D-OR). The bill was introduced in the House of Representatives by Congressmen Don Beyer (D-VA) and Vern Buchanan (R-FL).

Wildlife corridors are incredibly important to the survival of such iconic species as Florida panthers, pronghorns, monarch butterflies, and grizzly bears, allowing them to move and migrate to find food, water, mates, and shelter in the face of climate change.

Please let the co-sponsors know how much we appreciate their leadership on wildlife corridors! Take a moment to send a thank you to your senators and representatives for cosponsoring this crucial legislation that will help protect and preserve America’s native wildlife!

Note: You may only send a thank you to the senators or representatives who represent your area. For example, only those who enter a California address can send a note of thanks to Senators Harris and Feinstein. Only those in Rep. Beyer’s district can send him a note of thanks.
