Advocate for more protection of marbled murrelet habitat


The Board of Natural Resources has the final say on which conservation strategy is adopted for the marbled murrelet, and they can and must do more to protect vital habitat. This is a critical decision point that will affect the survival of the species in Washington. More conservation of habitat must be included in the plan and the BNR and Commissioner Franz have the ability to make that call.

Now is the time to do what is necessary to recover this imperiled species in our state. The BNR needs to hear from you that you support additional protection for marbled murrelet habitat on state-managed forestlands. Email the board members now!

Hello, my name is _____ and I live in ______. 

I am calling to urge you to recognize the value of fully funding environmental programs. Environmental programs are a mere 1.9% of the state operating budget but these programs provide benefits to communities across the state through clean air, clean water, and thriving communities that make Washington a great place to live, work, and play.   

Specifically, I hope you will adopt a final budget that maintains funding for existing environmental programs and provide new funding for:

- Oil spill prevention (HB 1611)

- Reducing toxic pollution (HB 2182)

- The Clean Air Rule

- Puget Sound recovery

Thank you for all of your hard work during the 2017 legislative session and for considering my comments. I look forward to hearing from you, I can be reached at __(Phone Number)__.
