Project Leader Tracy Hill traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico on Sept. 29 to attend a joint meeting of the Strategic Habitat Conservation Technical Advisory Team (TAT) and the Executive Oversight Committee on Strategic Habitat Conservation.  The purpose of the TAT is to provide direction and support to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) and U.S. Geological Survey as the agencies move forward in cooperative implementation of Strategic Habitat Conservation a tool for the Service to address climate change.  This was the fourth meeting of the group which has been meeting for just over a year.  The meeting focused on development of a consistent message about SHC that can be translated both to Service field stations and also to the Service leadership.  The group was treated to a field trip visiting a fish passage project developed by the New Mexico Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office and to a presentation explaining how the station is using the SHC approach to conserve endangered fish species in the San Juan River.
