Wildlife Conservation Board Funds Environmental Improvement and Acquisition Projects, CDFW Report
The Wildlife Conservation Board has been making progress in their efforts to restore wildlife habitat in California. Recents steps include an increase in funds towards projects that rebuild aquatic habitats as well as the purchasing of more land acreage for endangered species.
March 11, 2019 – At its March 7 quarterly meeting, the Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) approved approximately $8 million in grants to help restore and protect fish and wildlife habitat throughout California. Some of the approved projects will benefit fish and wildlife — including some endangered species — while others will provide public access to important natural resources.

Funding for these projects comes from a combination of sources including the Habitat Conservation Fund and bond measures approved by voters to help preserve and protect California’s natural resources.
