Recovering American Wildlife

Learn about the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act from Dr. Emily Coffey. This bipartisan bill provides funding for (1) the conservation or restoration of wildlife and plant species of greatest conservation need; (2) the wildlife conservation strategies of states, territories, or the District of Columbia; and (3) wildlife conservation education and recreation projects. It includes language to safeguard native plants and to combat invasive species. Together with partners including the Native Plant Conservation Campaign, Plant Conservation Alliance Non-Federal Cooperators Committee, Garden Club of America and Botanic Gardens Conservation International United States, this language was included and an amendment was added stating that funds can be used for the conservation and restoration of native pollinator species.
