Hopi and Navajo Tribes get $200,000 each for golden eagle conservation efforts
Navajo-Hopi Observer


WASHINGTON - The Navajo and Hopi Tribes each received federal grants worth $200,000 for golden eagle conservation projects.

In all, 23 Native American Tribes in 14 states received grants to pay for a wide range of conservation projects from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the Tribal Wildlife Grants Program.

"The mindful stewardship of fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats is a value that tribal nations share with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service," said Dan Ashe, service director for the agency. "Tribal Wildlife grants create opportunities for us to work together in a variety of ways, including species restoration, fish passage, protection of migratory birds and coping with long-term effects of a changing climate."

The Tribal Wildlife Grants program has given more than $60 million to Native American tribes since 2003, providing support for more than 360 conservation projects that participating federally recognized tribes adminster. These grants provide technical and financial assistance for development and implementation of projects that benefit fish and wildlife resources and their habitats, including non-game species.

The grants have enabled tribes to develop increased management capacity, improve and enhance relationships with partners (including state agencies), address cultural and environmental priorities, and heighten tribal students' interest in fisheries, wildlife and related fields of study. Some grants support recovery efforts for threatened and endangered species.
