Turtle Island Restoration Network, alongside more than 150 conservation groups, signed a letter to Senator Tom Udall and Representative Don Beyer to express our strong support for the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act of 2018.

The Wildlife Conservation Act, introduced by Senator Udall (D-New Mexico) and Representative Beyer (D-Virginia), would provide for the designation of National Wildlife Corridors on federal public lands as well as funding for states, tribes, and other entities to enhance habitat connectivity on non-federal public lands through wildlife crossings and other habitat connectivity projects.

“Just as people need roads and highways to travel from one place to another, fish, wildlife and event plants also need corridors connecting natural communities,” the letter reads. “The Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act will provide key tools for conserving our nation’s wildlife and natural heritage for future generations.”
