Transcript for Wetlands Regained, segment 07 of 8
With a California population of thirty million people growing by three quarters of a million every year, the picture for wildlife habitat in the state is clear. Land and water areas for wildlife will continue to shrink unless we act now to protect them.
In nineteen eighty-eight the President announced his support for wetlands stewardship, underscoring the importance our nation places on wildlife preservation and management.
California was endowed with lands rich in natural resources. Implementation of the San Joaquin Basin Action Plan and the cooperative efforts of the California Department of Fish and Game, Bureau of Reclamation, and the Fish and Wildlife Service will preserve a haven for wildlife in the Central Valley. Your help, cooperation, and support for this program will make all the difference in safeguarding this legacy today and for generations to come.
