SCBNA submits letter in support of Wildlife Corridor Connectivity Act
The SCBNA Policy Committee (SNAP) is engaging on the issue of wildlife corridor and habitat connectivity at the federal and state levels. In April, SNAP submitted a letter in support of the proposed federal Wildlife Corridor Connectivity Act of 2019 co-sponsored by Senator Udall and Representative Beyer. The Act 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 lands through wildlife crossings and other habitat connectivity projects. These corridors would increase the ability of fish, wildlife, and plants to move between habitats for migration, dispersal, genetic exchange, and climate adaptation across the country. A vote on the bill is expected in late 2019.
