Tell Congress: Stand up for science funding

This petition had 56,656 supporters

Science is essential to restoring degraded coral reefs, saving threatened species, securing clean water for all, and slowing the onslaught of climate change. But the reality is the Administration's proposed budget makes devastating cuts to vital scientific programs we need for a brighter future—from cutting the EPA Office of Research and Development budget in half, to completely eliminating funding for UN climate change research and NOAA coastal and marine research.

Here's the bottom line: Without critical scientific programs like these, we will fall behind—and more special places will be lost forever. We need you to add your voice today to protect science and keep innovation off the chopping block.

Take a stand right now and tell your representatives and senators to say no to cuts to scientific research.
