Conservation Report Card

Special note: As of October 9, 2018, Defenders of Wildlife has taken its interactive vote center offline. The action came after discovering that the center’s search function was producing erroneous results for some members of Congress. Please instead consult PDF versions of the Conservation Report Card, published annually after each session of Congress and then posted to https://defenders.org/conservation-report-card. The Report Card will continue to provide valuable and reliable information about how members of Congress have voted on key issues impacting wildlife.
