Heinrich, Blunt To Hold Press Call On Landmark Wildlife Conservation Bill

WASHINGTON - Tomorrow, Thursday, April 7, at 2:15 p.m. ET/ 12:15 p.m. MT, U.S. Senators Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) and Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) will hold a conference call with reporters on the bipartisan Recovering America’s Wildlife Act following the business meeting before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW).

Senators Heinrich and Blunt’s legislation invests in proactive, on-the-ground conservation work led by states, territories, and Tribal nations to support the long-term health of fish and wildlife and their habitat all across America. These locally-driven, science-based strategies would restore populations of species with the greatest conservation need.

Since introduction in July 2021, the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act has gained significant momentum with 32 bipartisan sponsors and cosponsors, and is backed by over 60 Tribes and 1,500 organizations representing state fish and wildlife agencies, sportsmen and women, conservation groups, and industry associations and businesses.
