Sandy Emergency Supplemental To Fund Repairs at Refuges, Hatcheries

In the Hurricane Sandy Supplemental funding bill signed this week by President Obama, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will receive $68.2 million to make repairs to 25 national wildlife refuges and 3 national fish hatcheries from Florida to Maine. The funds will be invested to restore facilities to their pre-Sandy condition. Projects will include debris field clean-up, rebuilding roads, trails, and other public access facilities, and restoring important ecosystems that benefit communities as well as wildlife. In many areas, the Service will restore facilities to be more resilient and withstand future storms and rising sea levels. The Service will now develop project implementation plans and timelines.
