Support of the federal Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act
Since SB 228 was signed into law, national attention on corridor conservation has continued to grow. US Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) and Representative Don Beyer (D-VA) reintroduced their Wildlife Conservation Corridors Act, which would create a national system of wildlife corridors and provide $50 million in grants to help states protect these migration routes. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has distributed additional funds to western states, including New Mexico, to conduct GPS collaring studies to better understand how wildlife are using the landscape.
To that end, the federal version of the corridors act needs the support of your senators and representatives. This campaign will help your voice be heard!
