Examples of funded projects...
Examples of the types of projects that may be funded include using prescribed burning to restore grasslands that support imperiled species, fencing to exclude animals from sensitive habitats, or planting native vegetation to restore degraded habitat. In fiscal year 2003, awards were provided to projects benefiting species ranging from the whooping crane in Nebraska to the bald eagle in the State of Washington. Funding was also provided for the restoration, management, and enhancement of important habitat for imperiled species, such as longleaf pine habitat in Alabama to benefit gopher tortoise populations, mixed-grass and prairie stream habitat for at-risk species such as black-tailed prairie dogs, the lesser prairie chicken, and two federally listed fish species (Arkansas River shiner and Arkansas darter) in Kansas, and the restoration of habitat in Alaska to benefit the federally threatened Steller's and spectacled eiders (birds).
