Saving the Lesser Prairie Chicken, 1 Million Acres at a Time
March 13, 2014 08:53 AM - Allison Winter, ENN

Due to it's restricted range in the prairies and sandhills of Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas, the Lesser Prairie Chicken is considered a "vulnerable" species. Because of human activity as well as persistent drought, habitat destruction has directed the species towards candidacy for a threatened or endangered listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). In fact, reports estimate that the grouse's population has declined to approximately 17,615 individuals, and the species currently inhabits only 17% of its historic range. However, not all is lost for the Lesser Prairie Chicken as recovery and conservation efforts are on the rise. The Lesser Prairie Chicken Range-wide Conservation Plan (RWP) developed by the Western Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) outlines tools and provides incentives to encourage landowners and others to voluntarily partner with agencies in habitat conservation efforts. One such company dedicated to the conservation front is Occidental Petroleum Corporation (Oxy), an oil and gas exploration and production company who announced last week that it will commit $12 million over a three-year period to enroll nearly 1.8 million acres of its interests in conservation programs to support the recovery of the grouse species.

Illinois: 1,7 millones de personas optan por la electricidad verde al 100%
March 10, 2014 10:38 AM - Editor, The Ecologist

Illinois es uno de los seis estados de Estados Unidos que permite a las comunidades para agregar y especificar sus compras de energía. Ahora 91 comunidades, que comprenden 1,7 millones de personas, utilizan esta fuente de energía al 100%. Illinois ha adoptado la electricidad renovable en una a gran escala, lo que no se ve en ningún otro lugar en la nación, según un nuevo informe de Leading from the Middle: “Como han Liberado las Energías Renovables las Comunidades de Illinois” Con 91 comunidades proporcionando el 100 por ciento de electricidad renovable a sus residentes, el Estado supera con creces a cualquier otro, incluyendo Ohio, que cuenta con dos ciudades que ofrecen 100 % de electricidad renovable. El informe fue dado a conocer hoy por el Fondo Mundial de Vida Silvestre (WWF, siglas en inglés), el Centro de Legislación y Política Ambiental, LEAN Energía de los EE.UU., la Asociación de Illinois de Energía Solar, el Illinois Sierra Club y el Instituto Solar de Universidad George Washington.
