Don’t turn your back on this one.

Only one of the candidates running for the U.S. Congress is pledging to protect our wildlife. Diane Mitsch Bush has pledged to defend our century old Migratory Bird Treaty as well as The Endangered Species Act. Scott Tipton is part of the current government trying to not only weaken environmental protections humans require, but also weaken protections that our dwindling native bird populations and other animals require to have a chance to survive.

Our native animals can’t vote — but you can.
