U.S. House of Representatives passed a new wildlife conservation act in 231 to 190 vote. This new bill will give $1.3 billion for funding conservation effort programs. 15% of total funds will go to federally listed endangered species.
According to EcoWatch, the new bill will help protect over 1,600 vulnerable and endangered species in the US. The bill will be a great help to the Endangered Species Act, which doesn’t provide enough funding to help populations of threatened and endangered species.
There are currently about 1,600 species seen as endangered. However, there are over 12,000 species seen as threatened or vulnerable, and the new funding will help US states better protect both of these categories.
Some states already have plans in place on how to allocate the funding. Most of the funds will go to habitat restoration, creating wildlife crossings, and plants for pollinators.
