Endangered and threatened species of the Platte River by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service( )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

. The Platte River stretches across three states; Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska and is home to the endangered whooping crane, interior least tern, and pallid sturgeon and the threatened piping plover. The report focuses on Nebraska's central Platte River and examines the current "critical habitat" designations for the piping plover and whooping crane and whether or not they were supported by existing science. The committee found the agencies' decisions were scientifically valid at the time they were made. However, future decisions should be based on newer scientific approaches. Human activities and increased attacks by predators on nests are also contributing to the continuing drop in numbers of piping plovers and interior least terns. The report also finds that other agency decisions, such as habitat-suitability guidelines and instream-flow recommendations were based on valid science
Nonnative oysters in the Chesapeake Bay by Committee on Nonnative Oysters in the Chesapeake Bay Staff National Research Council (U.S.)( )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonnative Oysters in the Chesapeake Bay discusses the proposed plan to offset the dramatic decline in the bay's native oysters by introducing disease-resistant reproductive Suminoe oysters from Asia. It suggests this move should be delayed until more is known about the environmental risks, even though carefully regulated cultivation of sterile Asian oysters in contained areas could help the local industry and researchers. It is also noted that even though these oysters eat the excess algae caused by pollution, it could take decades before there are enough of them to improve water quality

Restoring America's wildlife, 1937-1987 : the first 50 years of the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration (Pittman-Robertson) Act by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enacted when times were desperately hard for people and animals alike, the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act observes its 50th birthday in 1987 amid ample evidence that America's wild birds and mammals-after a long era of scarcity-are prospering again and their numbers growing. This happy outcome was by no means assured when the landmark Federal-State cooperative program began. Deer, wild turkeys, and many waterfowl species were only some of the creatures that had vanished from great parts of the country. The legendary abundance of wild game in earlier times was gone, potentially forever. Money and skills to reverse the downward trend were scarce. The conservation leaders who addressed this wildlife crisis recognized that no one could offer a quick fix or a free ride. Human distress was severe in 1937 after years of economic depression and drought, putting heavy pressures on all financial and natural resources. Looking for an answer, conservationists united behind two basic principles drawn from the earliest days of the Republic: Let those who stand to benefit the most be the ones to shoulder as much of the cost as possible, and give the States authority to do the needed work with just enough Federal monitoring to assure high standard of quality. An existing Federal excise tax on sporting arms and ammunition was before Congress for renewal that year. Wildlife advocates, nearly all of them hunters and supported strongly by the taxed industry, proposed that the levy be continued. But this time, they said, let us earmark the receipts for wildlife restoration projects to be designed and conducted by the States, instead of turning the money back into the Treasury general fund, as in past years and let the States share the costs of wildlife restoration projects, using funds from their hunting license fees. Enthusiasm was bipartisan and nationwide. Fittingly, the Act's chief sponsors were a Senator from Nevada, Key Pittman, and a Representative from Virginia, A. Willis Robertson. The Pittman-Robertson Act, as it came to be called, sped through Congress and was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on September 2, 1937. From a modest beginning, the Pittman-Robertson program has grown with the economy and the human population of our country. By now it has channeled nearly $1.7 billion in Federal excise tax receipts, augmented by some $600 million from the States, into activities to restore wildlife. The projects include State acquisition of acreage needed to bring wildlife back, research into wildlife requirements and problems, active management of habitats, and development of scientific ways to enable wildlife and people to share our land in harmony. The program has strengthened State governments and built wildlife management into a respected profession. For the past 15 years it also has been training some 700,000 hunters annually in safety and sportsmanship, substantially lowering the hunting accident rate and promoting sound conservation ethics. It has stimulated the economy of rural communities all across the land and given healthful outdoor recreation to many millions. But most of all, Pittman-Robertson has restored to abundance many of America's most beloved wild mammals and birds which are so much a part of our national heritage. And the beneficiaries include not only the game species but also many which are not hunted, from songbirds to bald eagles, from sea otters to prairie dogs. All this has been accomplished without resorting to general tax revenues. Those who pay the freight are those who purchase firearms, ammunition, and in recent years, archery equipment. Millions of Americans who never have purchased bows or sporting arms have shared in the enjoyment of wildlife that has come back as a result of those special levies. Pittman-Robertson's 50th anniversary is an ideal time to take stock of what this remarkable program has accomplished, what still needs to be done, and what the future seems to hold for our wildlife in a period of rapid change. It also is an appropriate time to salute the thousands of concerned Americans who have made substantial contributions of time and money to the success of this national effort. These are important achievements that give all of us yet another reason to take pride in America. They demonstrate that people can respect and replenish our living resources so that those resources many endure and be shared on this blessed planet, so rich in all forms of life, with present and future generations.

Conserving the future : wildlife refuges and the next generation by National Wildlife Refuge System (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Executive Summary: For the past 18 months, the National Wildlife Refuge System has worked to create a vision that will guide the management of the Refuge System during the next decade and beyond. Conserving the Future is built on the foundation and inspiration of Fulfilling the Promise. This new vision seeks to not only further the System's mission, but also to raise the Service's profile in the broader national conservation effort. Consistent with our guiding legislation, Conserving the Future embraces bold, new ideas to realize the full conservation potential of the National Wildlife Refuge System. The conservation landscape has changed, the playing field has changed and the stakes have changed. Human demands on the environment combined with environmental stressors are creating an urgent need for conservation choices. The scale of issues and challenges we face is unprecedented and impacts us all; no single entity has the resources necessary to address these challenges on its own. Conserving the Future acknowledges that strategic, collaborative, science-based landscape conservation-along with effective public outreach, education and environmental awareness-is the only path forward to conserve America's wildlife and wild places. This document articulates the Refuge System's role in this effort: leading when appropriate and supporting our partners when able. We recognize all of our conservation partners, and explicitly acknowledge the unique and valued realtonship, expertise, and authority of state wildlife agencies in managing fish, wildlife, and their habitats associated with the Refuge System. We also recognize that we must identify opportunities to engage new constituencies to help us meet our mission. Conserving the Future was developed by Service employees in partnership with stakeholders through a transparent public process. Although focused on the Refuge System, this process catalyzed a national discussion on conservation that transcends the Refuge System. Several recurring themes emerged: relevance to a changing America, the impact of a changing climate, the need for conservation at the landscape scale, the necessity of partnership and collaboration, and the absolute importance of scientific excellence. These themes are woven throughout the document
