The Red Knot has one of the most impressive migrations in the world, traveling over 9,000 miles twice a year along the Atlantic Flyway from the Arctic to Argentina and back, but habitat and the food resources to fuel this demanding journey have declined, putting these birds at risk. Since the 1980s, populations have fallen by 75 percent, with the steepest declines in the past decade.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has proposed protecting the Red Knot under the Endangered Species Act, and is accepting public comments through November 29. Send your public comments in support of protecting these imperiled birds today. You can send the sample letter below, or edit with your own words for even greater impact.
NOTE: Your name and address will automatically be added to the bottom of the letter. Your letter will become part of the public record.
