Episode Summary:

Today we are going to learn about the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, a piece of legislation that the Trump administration is attempting to dismantle 100 years after it was passed.  We are presenting for you in today’s episode a presentation given by the Chief Network Officer of the National Audubon Society, David Ringer.  David highlights the key role played by the Audubon Society in the passage of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act 100 years ago, and discusses how Audubon is currently working to ensure that this and other important protections for birds and our environment are maintained.

David gave this presentation back in November of 2018 as Audubon was winding down it’s celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act – but this message remains equally critical now, at the start of the new year.  While our current political situation can be downright depressing, it’s important to remember that we do have options for making our voices heard.
