LOWER KLAMATH: EXCITING STEP FORWARD
California Waterfowl has entered into an agreement to purchase rights to 4,500 acre-feet of water per year for the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, and it has begun seeking donor funding for the first payment.

This water right is a down payment toward the refuge's more realistic need: 30,000 acre-feet of water rights. But the smaller purchase will provide water this year, which is critical because the refuge does not currently expect to get any water deliveries this year.

MORE BREEDING HABITAT PLEASE
California's Central Valley falls far short of objectives for waterfowl breeding habitat, according to the Central Valley Joint Venture’s newly updated Implementation Plan. The report calls for nearly doubling brood-supporting wetland acreage in the Central Valley, and it calls for substantially increasing nesting habitat in the Sacramento Valley to reverse especially sharp habitat declines in that region.

The report, produced by a coalition of 19 public and private entities including California Waterfowl, provides much-needed data that will support CWA's efforts to secure funding for habitat improvements needed to boost the state's flagging mallard population. Click here to read more.
