Loan to buy wetlands, grasslands in NWRs?

Two bills being considered by Congress -- H.R. 2757 and S. 1641, both named the Wetlands Loan Act -- could secure a loan of $400 million to buy wetlands and grasslands for the National Wildlife Refuge System during the next 10 years.

If you consider the conservation of wetlands and grasslands important, consider contacting your senators and representatives and sharing your views.

Speak up. Help the birds.

Cool news! Thanks for the info! I don't think raising the price of duck stamps is a bad idea, although it might discourage some non-hunters from buying one. It is the BEST way in terms of how much money actually goes for the conservation, so I am all for it.
