$139k for vulnerable wildlife

Feb 28, 2021

The Commonwealth’s Division of Fish and Wildlife, Department of Lands and Natural Resources, is also receiving $138,770 from the State Wildlife Grant Program, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced. The funds will be used to help address a variety of conservation needs identified in the Marianas Wildlife Action Plan including research, fish and wildlife surveys, species restoration, habitat management, and monitoring. The State Wildlife Grants are specifically targeted at accelerating the recovery of threatened and endangered species and preventing other species from having to be listed under the Endangered Species Act. Funds are allocated by formula based on population size and geographic area. Congratulations to DFW.
