Restoring America’s Wildlife Act one step closer to reality

Recovering America's Wildlife Act (RAWA) will provide funding needed for conservation efforts.

Wildlife in the United States is at risk. Government agencies for fish and wildlife have collectively identified more than 12,000 species of mammals, birds, fish and insects, which you probably have never heard of because they need proactive conservation measures.

If passed, the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (RAWA) will provide the funding needed for such efforts.

Restoring America’s Wildlife Act is a two-pronged piece of legislation.
