No Water for Klamath Wildlife?

Wildlife in the Klamath Basin are in trouble again, this time because the Bureau of Reclamation is once again imposing a man-made drought on Lower Klamath and Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuges.

Forecasters are predicting a low water year this summer, but rather than asking agribusiness in the massive Klamath Irrigation Project to conserve, the Bureau is cutting water for wetlands and the wildlife which depend on them.

Please contact Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and urge them to support wildlife by directing the Bureau of Reclamation to provide enough water to maintain vital wetlands in the National Wildlife Refuges.

Please take action now before the spring migration season gets underway, and the current Klamath crisis goes from being a critical situation to a disaster for wildlife.

Thank you for your help!
