Don’t Rob Great Lakes of Vital Funding

Target: Senator Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader

Goal: Don’t cut funds for the care and protection of the Great Lakes just to fund unnecessary border wall.

To fund his unnecessary border wall, Donald Trump has proposed cutting tens of millions of dollars in funding to the Great Lakes. More than $50 million that goes toward research, preservation, and protection of these natural wonders would be slashed in favor of funding a border wall between America and Mexico.

The five Great Lakes between America and Canada are one of world’s most amazing natural wonders. They’re habitats for land, air, and aquatic animals. They are home to Niagara Falls. They are an important trading and shipping site. They are places of recreation for millions of Americans.

To rob the Great Lakes of their funding would ensure their destruction. It would destroy habitats for millions of animals, leading to their sure extinction. It would destroy areas of recreation for Americans, robbing them of a closeness to the natural world that fosters respect for our environment. Sign the petition and demand that Congress not approve Trump’s budgetary measure and instead protect the Great Lakes.


Dear Senator Schumer,

Donald Trump has recently proposed cutting tens of millions of dollars from the protection and preservation of the Great Lakes. More than $50 million would be cut from the Great Lakes and instead go toward building an unnecessary border wall that will do nothing but destroy our environment.

The Great Lakes are one of the world’s natural wonders. They’re home to millions of different species and a destination for millions of Americans, Canadians, and others who love the natural world. To cut funding would destroy these lakes. I demand that you and your fellow Congressmen and women do everything you can to ensure that this budgetary measure is not approved.

  1. Gen Lovyet Agustsson says:

    do not pollute the lakes!

  2. Dr. Tony DeLia says:

    To say that our President is like a 5 year old brat is an insult to 5 year old brats.

  3. This is horrifying. Trump is willing to destroy the Great Lakes because of a paranoic delusion about Mexicans. He must be stopped.
