Act now to save the Canada lynx's home

This petition had 37,132 supporters

The rare Canada lynx is so elusive, it’s sometimes called the “ghost cat.” In the face of threats from habitat loss and the fur trade, the species is making an inspiring comeback against all odds. But now these majestic wild cats face a dangerous new threat: Congressional budget cuts.

The Nature Conservancy has made great strides to protect critical habitats for lynx and other animals in areas like western Montana, but now proposed budget cuts to key conservation programs like the Land and Water Conservation Fund put these efforts in danger. Without full funding for these essential programs, the habitat that lynx and many other species in Montana depend on could be lost forever.

Congress needs to know: Species like the Canada lynx cannot afford the devastating proposed budget cuts to the Land and Water Conservation Fund and other key public lands programs.

Take action today and urge your elected officials to support robust funding for programs to protect Canada lynx and other critical species.
