Recovering America’s Wildlife Act – introduced July 12, 2019 This bill (H.R. 3742) is a bold effort to reverse America’s wildlife crisis. Recovering America’s Wildlife Act will address this with a once in a generation investment to fund wildlife recovery efforts in each state including Colorado. The Colorado Wildlife Action Plan lists 55 “tier 1” species of greatest conservation need and an overall 159 such species. 76 members of Congress already have signed onto the bill. We are working to gain support among each of Colorado’s 7 Representatives.
Protects nearly 100,000 acres along the Continental Divide and designates the first-ever National Historic Landscape around Camp Hale.
Withdraws about 200,000 acres from future oil and gas development, while preserving existing private property rights for leaseholders.
Formally establishes the boundary for the Curecanti National Recreation Area Boundary and improves coordination among land management agencies.
Protects nearly 62,000 acres in the San Juan Mountains and designates two fourteeners, Mount Sneffels and Wilson Peak, as wilderness.
