Recovering America’s Wildlife Act introduced in U.S. Senate

 

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA)

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – The introduction of the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (S.3223) has been introduced this week in the United States Senate. Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander is one of the co-sponsors of the bipartisan legislation that recommends funding for those fish and wildlife species of greatest conservation need across the country.

“Senator Alexander has championed several wildlife-related issues specific to Tennessee and his leadership on this national issue will be instrumental,” said Ed Carter, executive director of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. “His longtime personal interest in wildlife and the outdoors allows a unique personal connection as an advocate for this critical legislation.”

Scientists estimate that one third of all U.S. wildlife species are already imperiled or are vulnerable. Habitat loss, invasive species, and severe weather have all taken a severe toll on birds, mammals, fish, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies, and bees. All types of wildlife are declining—in many cases dramatically. We need urgent action to protect vulnerable wildlife. The Recovering America’s Wildlife Act is the solution we need.
