Thank you for your interest in taking this action. This campaign is now closed.
WWF greatly appreciates all of the supporters who pushed for increased U.S. fiscal year 2009 appropriations for programs that protect nature in developing countries.
In the fall of 2008, Congress passed a "continuing resolution" to keep the federal government operating at 2008 levels until March 2009. WWF will continue to push Congress to increase funding for international conservation programs when it takes up the fiscal year 2009 appropriations bills again. Learn more about this campaign.
