|Harrisburg, PA — The
Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s Executive Director Dr. Douglas Austen announced a call for project applications
to the State Wildlife Grant Program today.
The projects, funded through the grant program, will address
high-priority conservation needs for endangered, threatened and at-risk reptile, amphibian, fish and
aquatic invertebrate species across Pennsylvania.
The federal dollars for this program are awarded to
the Fish and Boat Commission from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service through the State Wildlife Grant Program. Pennsylvania
has yet to receive notification of its 2008 apportionment, thus funding of any selected projects will
be contingent upon this award.
The project applications are due by 4 p.m. on May 5, 2008. The Fish and
Boat Commission hopes to finalize project selections by mid-July.
look forward to working with our conservation partners across the state to develop the best projects
for long-term conservation benefits to the Commonwealth,” Austen said. “This program provides us with
a great opportunity to protect these animals, which are important indicators of environmental health.”
