Wisconsin's law to safeguard rare wildlife, plants and their habitat turns 40 in 2012 and there's a lot to celebrate. See some of the species that DNR, partners and citizens have helped bring back from the brink of extinction or are protecting. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and partners will highlight these successes in the coming year and the people who helped make them possible. A new web feature every month will showcase videos, slide shows, an interactive timeline and other multi-media to tell the stories, provide listings of events and places to see and learn about these species, and how people can get involved in restoration efforts on the ground.
