Now that is good news.  I thought it was just a small patch on the CT shore somewhere.   Just wish we could promote a corridor going north/south to facilitate migration and stability of the landscape.   Image your are a bird and you are heading north.  You are ready to stop for breakfast, and your favorite restaurant isn't there any more.  In fact the whole town is gone and now there are condos, parking lots, shopping developments, a casino, hotels.  What do you do?  Your GPS has not updated with new maps.  I guess the Conte Refuge is the start of a corridor, but as far as I know the refuge lands are mostly disconnected.   Jan

> Yes, that is indeed great news. However, the flip side is that we stand to loose the Loxahatchee  N W R in Florida. This huge refuge is currently only leased to the federal government by the state of Florida. Because the feds have not eradicated invasive species on the refuge the state is threatening to take over the refuge. Apparently the sugar industry would like to see it done away with. Wish I had more details but hopefully the situation will be brought to the attention of the public. Patrick, do you have more info about this?
