Tell the U.S House to pass a 2013 Farm Bill!
The agricultural conservation programs that are authorized and funded through the farm bill are the backbone of DU's cooperative conservation work with our partners in agriculture. Thus, it's critical that programs such as the Conservation Reserve Program and Wetlands Reserve Program are adequately funded to sustain our traditions of waterfowl conservation and hunting.
Tell your House of Representatives members:
More than 70 percent of the nation’s native grasslands and 50 percent of wetlands have already been lost.
The rate of loss has been accelerated by unintended consequences of current agriculture policy and advanced technology.
Vote yes on Rep. Mike Thompson’s (CA) amendment to re-couple conservation compliance to crop insurance, a crucial step in conserving our remaining wetlands and grasslands.
They must pass a comprehensive 2013 Farm Bill to help conserve our nation’s remaining wetlands and grasslands.
