Providing Safe Passage For Wildlife
From our friends at Wild Virginia: SB 1274 passed the Virginia General Assembly with strong bipartisan support! As wildlife move across land or through the water, they increasingly find their habitat shrinking or fragmented by human development. SB 1274 helps to combat the decline of Virginia’s natural ecosystems by helping wildlife move safely from one place to another and will both protect wildlife and the public of Virginia. This bill builds on the Wildlife Corridor Action Plan that went into effect last July. It directs key agencies to incorporate wildlife corridors and road crossings into their planning. This will help ensure that wildlife corridors are considered and protected across agency jurisdictions.
