TNC, on US Fish and Wildlife's finalization of policy to balance development and conservation, praises agency's work to restore a wildlife mitigation policy that ensures consistency, transparency, and predictability for project proponents

Sample article from our Government & Public Policy

ARLINGTON, Virginia , May 12, 2023 (press release) –

The following is a statement by Kameran Onley, managing director of North American Policy and Government Relations, after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released its new policy detailing how infrastructure and other development projects should balance development and conservation by avoiding, minimizing, and offsetting impacts to wildlife species and their habitats:

“The best outcomes for America’s wildlife and for development can only occur with clear, effective policies that recognize the needs of both. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s work to restore a wildlife mitigation policy that ensures consistency, transparency, and predictability for project proponents is both admirable and necessary for the agency to meet its mission and legal requirements.

“With the unprecedented decline of so many species, it’s imperative that we avoid, mitigate, or compensate for impacts to America’s wildlife and their habitats whenever possible. This policy will help reduce conflict between conservation and land use activities, allowing projects to succeed, minimizing species’ impacts, and continuing effective land stewardship. We look forward to continuing to work with the Service to implement this policy.”
