Recovering America’s Wildlife Act bill (HR 3742)

Introduced July 12 This bill is a bold effort to reverse America’s wildlife crisis.  It will invest in on-the-ground conservation essential to help address species of greatest conservation need across the country, including Colorado’s species of greatest conservation need.  Colorado’s species of greatest conservation need are listed in the Colorado State Wildlife Action Plan. There are 55 “tier 1” species in Colorado that include Greenback, Rio Grande and Colorado River cutthroat trout, Golden eagle, Greater sage grouse, Lynx, Mountain plover and Burrowing owl. There are an additional 104 species (tier 2) listed in the Action Plan of greatest conservation need.  We are working hard to gain our Congressional Representatives’ support on this bill. Help all of us achieve their co-sponsorship of this bill. There are now 157 co-sponsors of this bill!  Colorado co-sponsors and supporters include Rep. Ed Perlmutter,  Rep. Joe Neguse of Colorado and Rep. Diana DeGette.
