Recovering America’s Wildlife Act

Recovering America’s Wildlife Act

On July 7, 2016, Congressman Don Young (R-AK) and Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) introduced the bipartisan Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (H.R. 5650) calling for $1.3 billion in existing revenue from the development of energy and mineral resources on federal lands and waters be dedicated to the Wildlife Conservation Restoration Program to conserve a full array of fish and wildlife. 

This is a ground-breaking piece of legislation that will have a profound effect on American wildlife if passed. Check back often or join our mailing list below to receive updates and information as it becomes available.

But to start with, read the recommendation “The Future of America’s Fish and Wildlife” — the document that initiated H.R. 5650 — put together by the Blue Ribbon Panel on Sustaining America’s Diverse Fish and Wildlife Resources. Click on the image below to open the pdf.
