We need your help shaping the next generation of wildlife conservation. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is in the process of shaping their new vision for the next decade and beyond, and the agency is seeking input from interested citizens like you.
Here is a little background on why MCBI is involved in this process. MCBI first became interested in the work of the USFWS while advocating for the protection of four extraordinary marine national monuments (Papahānaumokuākea, Marianas Trench, Pacific Remote Islands, and Rose Atoll) in the Pacific Ocean. Together these monuments encompass greater than 335,000 square miles. The monuments are managed collectively or in part by the USFWS, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the State of Hawaii. These monument areas need to be considered as USFWS continues to develop their new vision.
So, take a moment to visit their site at http://www.americaswildlife.org/ and contibute your thoughts and perspectives to their new vision. Also, be sure to comment on MCBI’s Vice President for Government Affairs, Bill Chandler’s, blog entry.
