Will The Task Force Survive?

A key official at the Southwest regional official of the US Fish and Wildlife Service said that she and her staff will “bow out completely from this effort…due to restructuring as a result of budget constraints.”

Worse still, the agency’s top official in Arizona said that connectivity conservation for endangered carnivores of the Southwest isn’t close to the top among priorities. Wow!

Still, we are going to do everything possible to resuscitate the Connectivity Conservation Task Force; so far it’s the only game in town for protecting critical habitat linkages for jaguar, Mexican wolf, and ocelot here in Arizona and New Mexico.
