With the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Marine mammals play a vital role in the balance of marine ecosystems, and along with NOAA, we are working to ensure the health of our oceans for people and wildlife. Follow #OceanAndCoast50 on social media to join the conversation.
With the help of a Highlands Conservation Act grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Simsbury, Connecticut, bought the Meadowood farm last year. The land gives people an opportunity to connect not only with nature but also with history. Morehouse students used to travel north to this farm and work to earn money for their tuition. One of those students was Martin Luther King Jr.
It wasn’t the duck hunt that helped Tyrelle John Haney, an intern with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Houston Urban Program, connect with nature. It was everything else, from the hoot of an owl to the sunrise, that restored the first-time hunter.
