On August 26, 2011, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the California Department of Fish and Game announced that projects throughout the state will receive more than $24 million in grants through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (Service) Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund (CESCF). These grants will support conservation planning and acquisition of vital habitat for threatened and endangered fish, wildlife and plants, and help local California governments expand their environmental programs.
