This past February five species and three critical habitats were added to Vermont’s Threatened and Endangered Species list. From bat hibernacula to native pollinators with rapidly declining populations, these new listings highlight some of our state’s most pressing conservation challenges at a time of habitat loss and changing climate. Want to learn what’s being done to conserve them?
Join scientists from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, Audubon Vermont, The Nature Conservancy, and Vermont Center for Ecostudies, for a lunch hour (12-1 pm) webinar on Wednesday April 27th. We’ll cover the ecology of the newly listed species, explain what “critical habitat” is and how it helps recover threatened or endangered species, and walk through some of the conservation steps we are taking—and how Vermonters can help.
