April 27, 2015
A plan to reintroduce red-cockaded woodpeckers at Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia, where they have not been seen since 1974, aims to boost the nationwide population, making it the state's second population and the only one on public land. This project is one of 14 across 18 states being funded through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Cooperative Recovery Initiative to help recover threatened or endangered species on or near national wildlife refuges. Since 2013, the CRI has funded 38 projects totaling $16.4 million. These projects also provide other conservation benefits to other imperiled species and encourage a diversity of partnerships.
