WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Susie Lee (NV-03) announced that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has allocated more than $24 million to Nevada for wildlife and habitat conservation and restoration.  

“Nevada is one of the most biodiverse places in the country, but even here, more than 600 species of plants and animals are at risk of extinction,” said Congresswoman Lee. “This funding will help ensure that these at-risk species and their habitats have the support they need for conservation and restoration efforts, and will ensure that our natural landscapes are enjoyable for all.” 

The Fish and Wildlife Service awarded this investment of $18,269,558 through the Wildlife Restoration Program and $5,798,258 through the Sport Fish Restoration Program to conserve and restore wildlife and their habitats as well as invest in fishery projects, boating access, and aquatic education.
