We know birds don’t have a political party and that they don’t vote.
We also know it’s both disrespectful and simplistic to pigeonhole a commitment to conservation as progressive or conservative. Protecting birds, their habitats and our natural resources is just plain common sense.
Bird lovers come in all political flavors. But many politicians and their media messengers have polarized the debate, pitting everyday people against each other. It’s causing gridlock that makes progress nearly impossible. And the clear losers are our children.
It’s time to send a message: conservation is too important to be held hostage by partisan politics. Please join us in signing the American Eagle Compact.
Audubon has joined forces with ConservAmerica, a leading conservative pro-environment group, on a campaign based on common ground called “Because Conservation Doesn’t Have a Party.” Our hope is to deliver hundreds of thousands of signatures on the American Eagle Compact to the winners of November’s elections. It’s a set of principles with a simple message: conservation is not left, or right, or center — it’s common sense.
Your signature will tell legislators that playing politics with nature and with our children’s future isn’t the right path forward. You can tell them that there’s a better way to move ahead, a way to support smart conservation practices that we agree on in communities across America.
Sharing a commitment to conservation isn’t progressive or conservative — it’s American.
