Defend the Migratory Bird Treaty Act
Action Alert - Thursday, May 24, 2018 

The MBTA is a century-old law utilized by Republican and Democratic administrations to protect birds as they navigate the globe.

Now, under the Trump administration, MBTA violations will only be issued if the individual or organization acted purposefully to harm or kill migratory birds — rendering the Act useless. ~ Eliza Donoghue, Maine Audubon
