This year, we’re asking everyone to join us in bird dogging presidential and congressional candidates. Don’t worry if you feel daunted by this tactic. We are committed to ensuring you feel trained and supported.

Bird dogging is a strategy to ask all candidates important questions about the extinction crisis and get them on record. "To bird dog" means "to follow, watch carefully, or investigate." Politicians try to keep their positions hidden behind vague rhetoric. Using tightly crafted questions, the successful bird dog forces candidates to reveal their position on an issue and record the interaction on video.
