On Dec. 16 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced in a press release on their website that the numbers are in for 2016, and they’re impressive.
The Fish and Wildlife Service worked to restore and enhance more than 330,000 acres in 2016 for monarchs and other pollinators. That exceeds the goal the Department of Interior set for us of restoring or enhancing 320,000 acres of habitat by end of fiscal year 2017.
When we decided to go “all in” on monarch conservation, we knew we’d need the help of every U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) program. We have employees with expertise on the complexities of wildlife migration, we have employees skilled at partnering with other federal and state agencies and private landowners, we have employees who educate the American people, we have employees applying the best scientific research and tools available to broaden our conservation reach, and they’re all involved in monarch conservation.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.
