Like the Monarch Butterfly, more than one-third of America’s fish and wildlife species are now at risk of extinction. In the United States alone, more than 1,600 species are already listed under the Endangered Species Act, another 150 are presumed extinct, and state wildlife agencies have identified more than 12,000 Species of Greatest Conservation Need. The Recovering America’s Wildlife Act, federal legislation to create an almost $1.4 billion annual fund for states and tribes, will focus on proactive conservation actions to prevent wildlife from becoming endangered as well as help recover those already endangered. Many wetland dependent species are in dire need of proactive conservation action. This webinar introduces the bill and shares what the bill will provide in terms of more habitat restoration, monitoring, research, education to help these species and the wetland habitats they depend across the United States.
