Take Action for America’s Otter Habitats

In recent years, the habitat of America’s river otters has been on the decline.

Pollution, invasive species, climate change, and habitat loss have degraded many of America’s water habitats–from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, and from the Puget Sound to the Chesapeake Bay.

Tell your senators that it’s time to make restoration of America’s watersheds a priority to ensure clean clear rivers and streams throughout the nation.

River otters are one of America’s most iconic aquatic species, living in rivers, lakes, marshes, swamps, and estuaries across the nation.

And it’s not just otters, waterfowl, fish and wildlife that are depending on us to restore our waters. Restoring America’s watersheds is a matter of public health; our communities depend on these watersheds for clean and safe drinking water.

Speak up now to restore America’s watersheds for the wildlife and communities that depend on them.

Right now, a U.S. Senate committee is debating an important group of bills that would impact the future of America’s watersheds. That’s why the time is now to speak up for restoring our waters and making sure that restoring wildlife habitat is a top priority for this Congress.

Please tell your senators to take action today to help this bill move one step closer to becoming law.

Sincerely,

National Wildlife Federation
