May 14, 2014

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has awarded $4.6 million in grants to tribes in 15 states to fund a wide range of conservation projects, including species restoration, protection of migratory birds, and planning for the long-term effects of climate change. The Tohono O’odham tribal government in southern Arizona will receive funding for a project along Route 86 with the goal of preventing animal-vehicle collisions along the highway, focusing on desert bighorn sheep, mule deer, jaguar, javelina, and the desert tortoise.
