Beyer testifies on Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act

Don BeyerRep. Don Beyer (D-VA) made a guest appearance Thursday in a Natural Resources Committee hearing on his bill, H.R. 2795, the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act.

The hearing is the most significant step procedural step forward to date for the bipartisan, bicameral legislation inspired by the work of Dr. E.O. Wilson, which was reintroduced earlier this year.

This year the bill to protect biodiversity by providing for the creation of a national system of wildlife corridors has rapidly gained momentum in Congress. It is endorsed by hundreds of wildlife protection organizations and outdoor retailers, including the Wildlands Network, Patagonia, the National Audubon Society, Defenders of Wildlife, and the Endangered Species Coalition.
