USFWS supports wildlife conservation in Russia and East Asia

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been working closely with Russia, China and other East Asian countries for decades to conserve threatened wildlife and habitats. Last month marked the 40th anniversary of collaboration under the U.S.-Russia Environmental Agreement.
In 2011, the USFWS Wildlife Without Borders program provided $522,000 to partner organizations dedicated to protecting key species in Russia and East Asia and leveraged an additional $1 million in matching contributions. These funds have provided wildlife law enforcement officials with necessary equipment and funds, helped build a long-term conservation program for the Chinese giant salamander, and more.   
Funding for wildlife conservation projects through the Wildlife Without Borders program includes a $15.5 million suite of grants across the globe.
