Imperiled wildlife and their habitats will benefit from $55 million thanks to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s State Wildlife Grant Program. The program establishes a conservation partnership among state fish and wildlife agencies, their partners, and the Service. Funded projects accelerate the recovery of endangered species, like the Kirtland’s Warbler, and can prevent others from being listed under the Endangered Species Act.
State fish and wildlife agencies across the country will receive $1 billion thanks to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, a partnership among state wildlife agencies, the outdoor industry and the Service. Generated by the hunting, angling and boating industries, in cooperation with outdoor enthusiasts, these funds are distributed by the Service to ensure all wildlife agencies receive support.
Coastal wetland habitat conservation is critical to ensure that important habitat, wildlife and coastal communities continue to thrive for future generations. Today, the Service will award more than $27 million to support 33 projects in 14 coastal states under the National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grant Program. State, local and tribal governments, private landowners, conservation groups and other partners will contribute more than $22.2 million in additional funds to these projects.
