Hold companies accountable for killing thousands of birds
The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) has been the strongest protection for birds in America for over a century. It holds companies liable for harm done to birds as a result of oil and gas drilling, construction and infrastructure projects, and more. More than 1,000 species of birds depend on the MBTA for protection, and this law has saved species like the snowy egret from extinction.
North America has lost more than 3 billion birds since 1970. We need to strengthen protection for birds, not remove consequences for companies that kill them by the thousands. I strongly urge you not to allow companies to "incidentally" kill birds without consequences.
