Document Description
Pursuant to Fish and Game Code 1501.5(b ), the California Department of Fish and Wildlife has been authorized to enter into Grant Agreement No. 01950401 (Agreement) and to make an award to National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. The Project is needed to maintain momentum towards least Bell's vireo species recovery. This will be accomplished in three steps: (1) identify the status and needs of the species in the next focal watersheds for recovery; (2) outline the specific recovery and management actions for the species so that partners can efficiently engage in conservation that will yield demonstrable results; and (3) build on the growing body of sciences that informs riparian bird conservation and uses the least Bell's vireo as an indicator of healthy riparian ecosystems in southern and central California.
