WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce’s (OH-14) bill, H.R. 5009, the Wildlife Innovation and Longevity Driver Reauthorization (WILD) Act, passed out of the House Committee on Natural Resources. This bipartisan legislation would reauthorize the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, which enables wildlife and habitat conservation in all 50 states and territories, and the Multinational Species Conservation Fund, which supports the global conservation of imperiled species, including rhinos, elephants, tigers, great apes, and turtles.

“Like many in Northeast Ohio, some of my fondest memories from growing up are connected to the Great Lakes, especially the wildlife in the area,” said Rep. Joyce, Co-Chair of the International Conservation Caucus. “The critical conservation efforts authorized by this bill will restore habitats and endangered wildlife in Ohio and around the world. Thank you to Chairman Westerman and the Committee for passing this bipartisan bill to support the survival of these endangered species so future generations can make memories of their own.”

“The House Committee on Natural Resources has prioritized improving and expanding conservation efforts throughout the country and internationally, and H.R. 5009 does exactly that. The programs this bill reauthorizes are decades old and have had proven results. This bipartisan piece of legislation will continue our long-standing efforts to promote responsible conservation efforts in the country and internationally,” said House Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Bruce Westerman.
