REGION 3 ENDANGERED SPECIES SECTION 6 GRANT PROPOSAL
Project Title: Wisconsin Endangered and Threatened Species Investigation
YEARS OF PROJECT: 2006-2007
NEED: The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WI DNR) has the legislative authority to manage all resident species of fish and wildlife as well as manage wild plants on public lands.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) acknowledged this authority and entered into an Endangered Species Cooperative Agreement for the management of all resident endangered and threatened fish or wildlife within the state on September 28, 1976 and for the management of all endangered and threatened species of plants within the state on October 1, 1981. The WI DNR has submitted annual reports on the activities carried out under the authorities granted by these Cooperative Agreements. Based upon these reports the USFWS has renewed the agreements.
These cooperative Agreements also qualify WI DNR to be eligible to receive U.S. Endangered Species Act, Section 6 funding.
This Project is submitted for consideration for Section 6 funding under the most recent allocation process developed by USFWS Region 3 administration. The WI DNR has decided to fund a variety of work activities with the funding that was allocated to the state of Wisconsin. The USFWS Field Office in Green Bay was consulted during the development of this list of work activities. A listing of the six different jobs within this Segment follows:
JOB 1. PIPING PLOVER (Charadrius melodus) INVENTORY AND ASSESSMENT OF THEIR PREY BASE AT SELECTED SITES ON THE LAKE SUPERIOR SHORELINE OF WISCONSIN.
JOB 2. MONITORING AND SURVEYS FOR EASTERN PRAIRIE FRINGED ORCHill (JOB MONITORING AND ADDmONAL SURVEYS FOR PRAIRIE BUSH CLOVER (Lespedeza leptostachya).
