The departments of Interior, Agriculture and Defense joined with state and other partners today to announce three new Sentinel Landscapes for Avon Park Air Force Range in Florida, Camp Ripley in Minnesota and military bases across eastern North Carolina. The partnerships target improved conservation of wildlife, working landscapes and military readiness. This year’s Sentinel Landscapes will help protect imperiled species such as the red-cockaded woodpecker, northern long-eared bat and Florida gopher tortoise.
