Endangered Species Program
The Endangered Species Bulletin Vol. XXV, No. 6—November/December, 2000

The Department of Defense manages approximately 25 million acres (10 million hectares) on more than 425 major military installations throughout the United States. Access limits due to security considerations and the need for safety buffer zones have sheltered these lands from development pressures and large-scale habitat losses for years. Found throughout the country, military lands contain some of the finest remaining examples of rare native vegetative communities, such as old-growth forest, tall-grass prairies, and vernal pool wetlands. At least 300 federally listed species live on Defense-managed lands. This edition of the Bulletin takes a look at efforts to conserve these important resources while maintaining our nation’s security.
