Hurricane Sandy Repair List Posted for the Refuge System

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has posted their Hurricane Sandy repair list, which outlines (by state) the national wildlife refuges that will be receiving repair work.

According to the USFWS, they will receive $68.2 million to make repairs to 25 national wildlife refuges and three national fish hatcheries from Florida to Maine.

The funds will be invested to restore facilities to their pre-Sandy condition. Projects will include debris field clean-up, rebuilding roads, trails, and other public access facilities, and restoring important ecosystems that benefit communities as well as wildlife. In many areas, the USFWS will restore facilities to be more resilient and withstand future storms and rising sea levels.
