Interior Approves Funding for Migratory Bird Wetland Conservation

$87 million will be invested in enhancing and restoring 315,000 acres of wetland.

The Department of the Interior (DOI) recently approved $87 million to conserve, restore, or enhance 315,000 acres of wetland for migratory birds. This funding will be distributed by grants authorized by the North American Wetlands Conservation Act, which will be matched by nearly $140 million in funds contributed by department partners.

“Funding for wetland and national wildlife refuge conservation projects will be pivotal in maintaining healthy bird populations, uplifting local economies and improving public access to recreational activities for future generations,” said Secretary Deb Haaland. She added that her department remains “focused on pursuing locally led, collaborative and inclusive efforts to conserve, connect and restore America’s lands and waters.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Secretary Haaland as she oversees efforts to conserve wetlands for migratory birds.
  • Interior Department officials as they assess the stability and habitats of wildlife in the U.S.
