Great news! Legislation introduced in the House of Representatives today would protect wildlife and our coasts by blocking offshore drilling. NWF President & CEO said, “The bills introduced today will protect our oceans and marine wildlife — which support tourism, outdoor recreation, and fishing — and contribute billions of dollars of economic impact to coastal communities. We urge the Trump Administration to reject earlier proposals to expand offshore drilling as it finalizes its planned Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program.” Bills were introduced by the following lawmakers: @repfrankpallone, @repjoecunninghamsc, @repcarbajal, @repdavidcicilline, @usrepkathycastor, @rephuffman, @repmceachin, and Rep. Elaine Luria. 📸: Sea otter, California. Credit: Betty Bird #seaotter #offshoredrilling #coasts #protectourcoast #oceans

The woodland caribou is native to Idaho and Alaska. Learn more about this North American species more commonly called “reindeer” during the holiday season. 1. In North America reindeer are also called caribou. 2. Both the males and females grow antlers. 3. Their noses are specially designed to warm the air before it gets to their lungs. 4. Reindeer hooves expand in summer when the ground is soft and shrink in winter when the ground is hard. 5. Some subspecies have knees that make a clicking noise when they walk so the animals can stay together in a blizzard. 6. Some North American caribou migrate over 3,000 miles in a year – more than any other land mammal. 7. Though thought of as a tundra species, a form of caribou lived in southern Idaho until the 19th century (there are ongoing efforts to re-establish them in the state). 8. Northernmost species are much lighter in color than species at the southern end their range. 9. Reindeer have been herded for centuries by several Arctic and Subarctic peoples. 10. The name “reindeer” is of Norse origin (from the old Norse word “hreinn” for deer) and has nothing to do the reins of a sled. The name “caribou” comes to us through the French, from the Mi’kmag “qalipu,” meaning “snow shoveler.” 11. Golden eagles are the leading predator of caribou calves in the late spring and fall. 12. Once the entire body of a reindeer was found inside a Greenland shark (most likely a case of near-shore scavenging, as opposed to a migrating land shark).

Legislation unveiled by @senatortomudall of New Mexico and @repdonbeyer of Virginia lays out an innovative strategy to address the ongoing fragmentation of wildlife habitat from climate change and man-made barriers. The Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act would create a national program for maintaining wildlife migrations, movements, and wildlife corridors to ensure that wildlife will face fewer struggles to reach food, water, shelter and breeding sites. “America’s wildlife are in crisis. More than one-third of all species at-risk or vulnerable to potential extinction in the decades ahead and fragmented migration corridors are only accelerating this problem,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “It’s essential that as America grows and invests in roads, dams, bridges, housing developments and energy infrastructure that new barriers are minimized and mitigated to ensure that wildlife can still move across essential habitat. We’re thankful for Senator Udall and Representative Beyer’s leadership on this issue to protect and retain wildlife habitat while restoring and re-connecting critical wildlife corridors.” #wildlifecorridors #wolverine #migration #wildlife #habitat #barriers #extinction #species #endangeredspecies #corridors #wildlifecrisis #infrastructure #leadership #congress

On a lek in Montana, a male sharp-tailed grouse seeks a mate. "The decline in grassland birds is equally stark. According to a report by the North American Bird Conservation Initiative, roughly a third of all North American grassland bird species are in steep decline, mainly due to habitat loss. Before the land-conversion boom, North Dakota, for example, had more than 3 million acres of CRP land, according to R.J. Gross, an upland game biologist with North Dakota Game and Fish. Today the state has only about 1 million acres, he says, and that decline has corresponded to a steep drop in the harvest of ground-nesting game birds such as sharp-tailed grouse and pheasants. “You can’t blame farmers. They have to make a living,” says Gross. “But take away the grasslands and it’s tough for birds to survive.” Learn more about the challenges facing the wildlife of the Prairie Pothole Region - link in story! #grouse #conservation #agriculture #prairiepothole #birds #northdakota #conservation #wildlife

Founded in 1914 by Aldo Leopold—then a young federal forester and eventually one of the nation’s greatest conservationists—the group now called the New Mexico Wildlife Federation (NMWF) became one of NWF’s first state affiliates in the late 1930s. “Ever since, it has been an incredibly powerful ally in our work, particularly on public lands issues,” says Lew Carpenter, NWF Rocky Mountain director of conservation partnerships. Today, with some 80,000 members, @nmwildlifefedis the state’s largest and most influential sporting organization. Its long list of accomplishments includes helping New Mexicans secure protection for 2 million acres of public lands and restore populations of elk, bighorn sheep and pronghorn. It also was the catalyst behind successful efforts to establish the state’s two newest national monuments: Rio Grande del Norte and Organ Mountains–Desert Peaks (above). “We’re focusing a lot of our work these days on connecting young people with nature,” says NMWF Communications Director Susan Torres. One program exposes Hispanic youth to New Mexico’s wild places and cultural heritage. Another teaches fly fishing to veterans to help them decompress from combat experience. “All New Mexicans deserve an equal opportunity to explore and enjoy the great outdoors,” says Gabe Vasquez, NMWF director of community relations. - Excerpt from National Wildlife Federation #newmexico #newmexicowildlife #nmwf #aldoleopold #affiliates #rockymountains #publiclands #elk #bighornsheep #pronghorn #newmexicans #veterans #youth #fishing #outdoors

Arkansas State University (@arkansasstate) is a proud player in the race to save #redwolvesfrom extinction. The University has helped to raise awareness about the plight of the critically endangered species. Additionally, it is working to incorporate red wolf ecology into its biology curriculum, specifically through the official red wolf repository in its Center for Biodiversity Collections (@arbiocoll) and its proposed red wolf conservation center in Jonesboro, AR.
