Acute Water Shortage in Oregon: Nation's Oldest Waterfowl Refuge in Crisis

Portland Audubon is sounding the alarm on the situation in the nation’s oldest waterfowl refuge. “The Klamath National Wildlife Refuges are some of the most important refuges for migratory birds in the Western United States. Today they should be full of water and hundreds of thousands of migratory birds. Instead, Tule Lake and Lower Klamath Refuges are dry, dusty, barren expanses--no exaggeration. There is no water to be found and birds are few and far between. At the peak of migration, the refuges are virtually silent. “

Birds migrating along the Pacific flyway depend on this habitat.

The only solution to this immediate emergency is a federal one. Portland Audubon seeks the public’s help in reaching out to Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland.

You can help by following the link below to send a letter. It will take five minutes. This is urgent.
