Tell LA City's Budget Committee to Fund Wildlife Corridors Before It's Too Late!
The Los Angeles Budget Committee may not fund the effort to provide wildlife connectivity. Please contact the Budget Committee (below) and ask them to fund the program.
On Wednesday, the LA City Council's Budget and Finance Committee failed to prioritize funding to implement plans for a wildlife corridor ordinance.
A lack of funding could seriously derail steps toward permanent protections for LA's wildlife and hillside habitats.
Unfortunately, many of the City Councilmembers on this committee did not place a high priority on this program, which means it may not receive the funding it needs.
The funding report on Planning's wildlife corridor program is here.
The objective of the study is to protect remaining open spaces and wildlife habitat, increase wildlife movememnt mobility, prevent further injuries and deaths of wildlife, designate an area as sensitive habitat and incorporate conservation, equity and biodiversity.
